Hello!

Deciding to seek out therapy can be a daunting task, but I am excited you have found yourself here. Whether you are looking for a check in, or to make major or minor changes, I would be honoured to support you in your journey. I aim to be as intentional as possible in my sessions, helping you identify your therapeutic goals, gain a further understanding of the barriers you face and where they developed. And lastly, make a tangible plan to get you to where you want to be.

I encourage you to utilize the free of charge 15 minute phone consultation opportunity to see if I would be the right fit for you.

Mental Health Concerns

I have unique array of experience with over 8 years in the field, ranging from Child Services to
working directly with those involved in the legal system. I have additional trainings and experience working with those that have experienced trauma as well as substance related disorders. I have a special interest in working with those that have or are experiencing domestic violence, and I strive to create an environment focused on rebuilding yourself and your story. I recognize the difficulty in navigating life during and after an abusive relationship, and how helpless and confusing it can be. I put a focus on understanding the dynamics of abuse, developing self compassion strategies, and building confidence in your ability of setting boundaries and trusting your own judgement.

More About Madison

I grew up on a cattle farm in Saskatchewan, and have lived in multiple provinces throughout Canada as well as throughout the States. I completed my undergraduate degree in North Dakota, where I was playing varsity volleyball until I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in addiction studies. I worked for a couple of years in Winnipeg at Residential Treatment Programs and Community and Family Services. I completed my Masters of Counselling Psychology in 2022.

I have two very needy pets, Margaret and Noodle, that consume a lot of my time. But when I’m not with them I try to play volleyball whenever I can, as well as finding and trying new restaurants in the city. I love a good book, a good movie and a good game of scrabble.
