Madeline's Approach to Helping

Madeline (she/her) is a Licensed Professional Counselor passionate about providing therapeutic support to adolescents and adults dealing with LGBTQIA+ concerns, women’s issues, stress and trauma, identity development, life transitions, and anxiety. Through her work, Madeline aims to help individuals to improve self-knowledge, develop meaning, and live authentically.

Madeline believes in a collaborative and individualized approach to therapy where clients have the space and support to explore new approaches to their mental health and well-being through examination of personal values and identities, development of mindful coping techniques, and integration of positive core-beliefs into daily life. She utilizes an eclectic approach to therapy, drawing from person-centered counseling, existential psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and feminist theory. Madeline’s additional specialties include trauma-informed care, grief and loss, ADHD, relational difficulties, positive communication, and self-harm.

Madeline has earned a Master’s of Counseling degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Idaho State University including elective coursework in counseling children and adolescents, human sexuality, and grief and loss, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Idaho. She is Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Idaho and National Certified Counselor, with post-graduate training EMDR and existential psychotherapy. She is a professional member of the Teletherapist Network and the Idaho Mental Health Counseling Association (IMHCA).

Through our work together, I aim to help you to improve self-knowledge, develop meaning, and live authentically.

Types of Therapy

Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, psycho-social therapy, counseling, or, simply, therapy, is the primary method for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health provider. The goal is the help an individual better understand their mental health and teach strategies and tools that manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.

While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, there is no single approach that works for everyone. A  therapist may use a blended approach, sampling techniques from several different types of psychotherapy. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on the unique needs. Below are some of the types of psychotherapy Madeline utilizes.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Adlerian Psychology / Psychotherapy
  • Bibliotherapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Collaborative Therapy
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Mindfulness-Based Interventions
  • Sand Tray Therapy

Industries & Communities Serves

Community can be defined in many ways, but when simplified down to its most important element, community is all about connection. Community is not just an entity or a group of people, it’s a feeling. It’s feeling connected to others, feeling accepted for who you are and feeling supported.

We’re social beings, and we are not meant to live in isolation. Community is critical for us to thrive, especially for someone with mental illness who is already experiencing the common symptoms of loneliness and isolation. Below are some of the communities Madeline works with to help provide a since of belonging, support and purpose.

  • Education
  • Military / Law Enforcement
  • Self-Employed and Freelance Professionals
  • Gay Allied
  • Lesbian Allied
  • Non-Binary Allied
  • Open Relationships Non-Monogamy
  • Queer Allied
  • Sex-Positive, Kink Allied
  • Transgender Allied
