Maddisson’s views on counseling: It can be difficult to express your needs and wants and sometimes life can have us feeling low, trapped, or defeated, however, I believe that we all are resilient and can grow and change. Furthermore, I believe counseling is a partnership that is based on respect, trust, and authenticity that can foster hope, self-compassion, and healing. Together, we can navigate your struggles to assist you in reaching your full potential so you can live your best and most authentic life.
