My name is Madeline Vanek and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Texas with experience providing individual, family, and group therapy. Since graduating with my Masters of Social Work in 2012, I have worked with individuals diagnosed with depression, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, and personality disorders. Many of my clients struggle with negative and/or debilitating thoughts, anxiety, self-esteem issues, stress management, and maintaining healthy relationships.
In my work, I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as person-centered and attachment-based modalities. I can help you recognize some of your underlying problem areas, identify and utilize your strengths, and adjust your thoughts and behaviors to see things differently. Every person is unique and I use an individualized approach for each client.

Madeline is a gift. If you ever wanted a practical, non stuffy counselor, she is it. Talking with her during my sessions is like having coffee with a dear friend that doesn’t mind that you’re venting or crying. She truly is wonderful.
She is amazing.
Thank you for listening so far you don’t know how much our few messages have done for me!
I’ve worked with Madeline for a few months now, and she has helped me make so many positive changes in my life. She’s soft and kind and welcoming but also doesn’t shy away from telling me things I need to hear. Things that no one else would say.
She’s very quick with chats and accommodating with scheduling. I couldn’t have asked for a better counselor and experience so far!
I’ve only had 2 video appointee with Madeline and I already feel so much more comfortable and relaxed than in any counseling session I’ve had before. She asked me exactly what it was I wanted to focus on and achieve and has helped me look into smaller things as well. I look forward to all that I learn from her and to grow and move forward with my life!
Madeline's ability to help me to both identify my negative thoughts and retrain the way I think has been incredibly helpful to me. If you are looking for a therapist who can recognize negative thought patterns and trains you to reframe them to then look no further. I haven't felt this rooted to myself in years.
She makes me feel so accepted and safe with what I tell her. It was only for a short time, but she is really good.
Quick replies with key insights. Am looking forward to doing more with Madeline V.
