Licensed Professional Counselor 



In Madison’s work, she has experienced that positive change occurs best when the therapist is able to create an environment of safety, trust, and acceptance. In this space, the client is able to fully be themselves and begin to navigate their own challenges and difficulties. She utilizes evidenced-based techniques, specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and client-centered approaches to meet the individual needs of each client and their families. She is passionate about working with children through play therapy and enjoys working with parents to help them support their children in the therapeutic process. She also loves working with teens and young adults, utilizing activities and traditional talk therapy methods to create a supportive and trusting therapeutic relationship. Her approach with each client is empathetic, collaborative, and intentional.

Madison attained her Bachelor of Science in Child Development with a minor in Psychology from Texas Christian University. During her time there she had the opportunity to study the Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) approach which solidified her passion for helping and connecting with children and their families. She completed her Master of Science in Counseling degree at Southern Methodist University with a focus in children and adolescents. She received specialized training in play therapy, activity therapy, and child-parent relational approaches. Madison completed her internship experience at Insights Collaborative Therapy Group where she implemented both child-centered and CBT techniques as she worked with children, adolescents and parents who experienced a wide variety of difficulties.
Madison’s formal education, both undergraduate and graduate, has prepared her to work with children, adolescents, adults, parents, families, and groups. She specializes in children and teens with a variety of presenting concerns. She believes that the beauty of being human is that we can always continue to grow and change and is honored to walk beside her clients and their families on that journey
