She uses a trauma-sensitive and culturally humble approach that emphasizes the mind-body-spirit connection in the pursuit of healing.
Maddie holds space for individuals, couples, and families and specializes with clients impacted by trauma and addiction. Working from a foundation of neurobiology of trauma, Maddie leads with non-judgemental awareness and a lens of curiosity in each session, approaching symptoms as a source of information. She is committed to cultivating a compassionate space to show up with you on your healing journey, whatever stage you may be at. She invites you to take up space, slow down, and notice how your body and spirit may be communicating you in each moment. Maddie is honored to walk this path with you, as she believes it is not one we are meant to walk alone.
