Madison sees therapy as an opportunity to experience authentic relationships with people, creating a butterfly effect for a more grounded and resilient life. She believes that we experience ourselves through our relationships. She creates an environment where clients increase compassion and acceptance of self and others. Madison encourages creative problem solving, you will have new experiences you didn’t even see as possible.
She utilizes child centered play therapy allowing children to process emotions in their own emotional language and provide a safe place to practice setting limits to express emotions responsibly. Through this language of play the lines of communication between parent and child are opened. She has training from Garry Landreth the creator of child centered play therapy.
Madison practices EMDR utilizing natural neurological processing similar to (REM) sleep. Which can be valuable to clients who have experienced a traumatic event or a traumatic relationship that gets stuck and creates emotional reactivity that doesn’t fit with the present moment. She has completed EMDR basic training and is accruing hours toward EMDR Certification.
