About Madeleine

With over 20 years of experience in therapy, I’ve enjoyed working across the full spectrum of gender identifications, cultural diversity and sexual orientations.

My goal for you is that every session causes movement in your life, that you leave every visit having gained something valuable. I attune to you, thus honoring your individuality and tailoring our work to your specific needs. Embracing your journey as sacred, we turn “poison” into “medicine” so you can get free and move on.

When it comes to a couple’s or individual’s ability to grow I am a tireless optimist. My optimism is fueled by a clinical knowledge base supported by neuroscience, proven therapeutic interventions, Buddhist philosophy and 20 years of positive results working with individuals and couples like you.

I have profound faith in you. And I want you to have faith in me. You can count on my authenticity, compassion, non-judgment, warmth and cheerfulness. 

The challenges that led you to this page indicate that you are looking for an opportunity to grow—in amazing ways, and with my expert support and clinically based guidance, you will! That’s what I’m here for. Call me.
