Madison Bentley


About me

I am a licensed professional counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology and Counseling from Troy Alabama University, a National Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor in the State of Georgia. I am a member of the Licensed Professional Counseling Georgia Association (LPCGA) and have served on various community boards within the CSRA. Over the past 23 years, I have worked with children, adults and families on multiple levels. I provide individual, couples, group and family counseling services to address mental health and/or substance use disorders. I also provide consultation to healthcare providers who treat special populations such as LGBTQ+ and provide LGBTQ+ affirming care. Moreover, I treat depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship challenges, parenting challenges, life challenges, etc., I am also trained by Dr. Charlotte Newman Charfen, MD as a death doula and combined with clinical skills, I work with individuals with acute and chronic illness or anyone seeking help with end-of-life services, which also includes working with supports. I also have extensive experience in emergency crisis services for anyone experiencing mental health and/or substance use problems.

My treatment style is compassionate and interactive. My therapeutic approach is tailored to each client. Some of the modalities used include EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and person-centered practice. I work with each individual to develop a treatment plan to meet the goals the client wants to achieve.

I believe each person has the answer and by talking through life challenges with a counselor, it is possible to obtain a more fulfilling life.

I look forward to working with you!

I've met with Madison only a few times and yet, I feel like I've been one of his patients for a long time. He is incredibly insightful, full of compassion, and ready to meet the need where it is ..not somewhere that's unattainable. I can't say enough good things about him.

Work with me!
