Dretona T. Maddox is not currently accepting new clients.
I am a registered nurse and a licensed clinical social worker in California with over 28 years as a nurse and 13 years of experience working as a trauma therapist and wellness coach. I help teen parents and former teen parents heal from the psychological and emotional trauma of early parenting. I also help women heal from the trauma of abortion. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in bridging the mind and body connection to health and wellness.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!
