Hola and Welcome! My name is Madelaine Ford (Maddy) and I am a counselor at Optimal Connections Counseling. I am a bilingual (English-Spanish) therapist, passionate about helping individuals and couples navigate life’s challenges and build stronger relationships. Seeking therapy can be overwhelming and it takes a lot of courage, so I celebrate your decision to start your healing journey. My personal journey and professional dedication make me particularly skilled in addressing intergenerational trauma, helping clients break the cycle of pain and build healthier futures.
I support my clients in cultivating healthier patterns of thoughts and behaviors through a trauma-informed approach and by implementing techniques that draw from Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. In my work with couples, I like to incorporate both the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy to help them achieve healthier relationships.
Take the first step towards positive change by reaching out to schedule a free 15-minute consultation. Whether you're seeking individual or couples counseling, I'm here to support you on your journey toward healing and growth. Don't wait any longer—let's start working towards a happier, healthier you today.

Intergenerational trauma, the transmission of unhealed trauma from one generation to the next, can leave a lasting impact on individuals and families. My own experience with intergenerational trauma allows me to provide a safe and supportive space to process and heal from these experiences, promoting emotional well-being and breaking the cycle of trauma.
