Message to clients

Madeline's style is warm, direct, and relational. She strives to build a strong therapeutic alliance and tailor treatment to each individual's unique needs. She has been trained in numerous evidence-based treatment models, including psychodynamic and relational therapy, DBT, CBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based approaches. Madeline believes that change does not occur in a vacuum and utilizes a team-based approach, referring to and collaborating with outside providers and resources.

Madeline works closely with clients to identify and resolve underlying causes of distress, closely attuning to how unaddressed past experiences may be contributing to their suffering. This work is difficult and can often bring painful emotions to the surface. She carefully guides her clients in developing skills to regulate their emotions, tolerate distress, and improve their functioning in relationships. Her ultimate goal in therapy is to help her clients live meaningful lives, whatever that looks like to them.
