My name is Madison and I have been providing therapy services for over 7 years in Ohio and Minnesota. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and walks of life in a variety of settings, including schools, physician's office/hospitals, and private practice.
My approach typically includes methods from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT, Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). Some issues I specialize in include anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, interpersonal conflict, and coping with major life changes. However, I believe that every client is unique and has different needs, even if they are facing similar challenges. It is my job to figure out which approach will be most effective for you.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work and my Master of Social Work degrees from the Ohio State University, where I also played division 1 hockey. As an athlete, I learned that resiliency, determination, and collaboration are important skills not only in sports, but also in life.
As a therapist, I see my clients as my teammate. We will work together towards a common goal, which we will set together. You have your strengths, and we will identify those and use them to our advantage.
The fact that you are here shows me that you are ready to make a change. Seeking support is the first and most difficult step. I am so glad that you are here, and am excited for us to work together to improve your quality of life. Welcome to our starting line!

I love Madison's non-judgmental listening style. I feel like I could tell her anything, and I trust her expertise so much. She gives space for me to be myself, something my inner child craves so much.

Madison has been so compassionate and supportive and responsive--I was a little nervous using this method for therapy, but Madison has been more fantastic to work with than I ever could have imagined. We're still early in our journey together, but I had an immediate sense of relief after the first message she sent me, before even meeting her for a video session. Her weekly check in messages really help encourage further grounding and mindfulness. I'm so happy our paths crossed!

I have only been working for Madison for a few weeks and I feel like I have already formed a great relationship with her that typically has taken me months with past therapists I have worked with. Using the chat feature with Better Help is such a game changer. Madison listens while giving me feedback and new coping mechanisms that I haven’t thought of before. I really enjoy working with her already and am excited to continue to!

Madison is great! At the end of the day she cares about you and what you need. She offers multiple ways of dealing with issues and will never put you in a place of pressure or stress which I greatly respect when going through hard times.
