My background in both trauma counseling and career counseling has launched me into a career centered around helping individuals find their paths, explore their potential, and create fulfilling futures that feel deeply connected to who they are.
Hi, I’m Maddie. Licensed therapist, career counselor, and your very own personal hype-man as you navigate big transitions and changes in your life. As someone with a background in trauma informed care, I know the concept of exploring purpose, navigating transition, and being motivated for change can feel incredibly scary, overwhelming, and outright impossible at times. Together, we will take the necessary steps to guide you through self-reflection, identify clear, tangible goals, and create a plan for your next steps that feel manageable and purposeful. You deserve a life that is ALL the things, but most of all reflective of you.

I have worked with people for over 30 years in: Emergency Services, At-Risk Teens, Victims of Crime, Career Changes, and with survivors of grief.
The therapeutic experience should encourage one to live a more satisfying and meaningful life. Everyone has a unique journey through this world and the sum of the experiences along the way (good or bad) make us as individual. Sometimes we get lost, hit bumps, or even get overcome with a tidal wave of things that we need help getting back on our path or creating a new one.

I believe that each of us has an inner wisdom that can guide us through life's most difficult challenges. At times our inner voice is strong and clear, whereas at other times it is faint and obscure. Psychotherapy can help us discover and clarify who we are, what we need, the direction we want to go and the form we want our lives to take. I assist my clients in clarifying their thoughts, feelings, perceptions and values, ultimately resulting in positive changes in their relationships and lives.
