"People start to heal the moment they feel heard." - Cheryl Richardson
Maddie Marshall joined the Iowa Family Counseling team in late 2020. Proud to call Kalona her hometown, she is happy to be close to family while supporting Iowa Family Counseling’s mission to provide quality mental health care to children, families, and individuals.
Maddie obtained her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Iowa. She has training and experience providing a variety of counseling and support services to clients of diverse backgrounds within schools, community programs, and the juvenile justice system. She is excited to bring her knowledge and expertise to private practice.
Maddie truly appreciates that every individual is unique and believes in taking a person-centered approach when offering counseling services to best meet the needs of her clients. She draws on a variety of therapeutic techniques to help each client meet their individual goals, including Person-Centered Therapy (PCT), Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), among others.
Maddie has a special interest in helping children, adolescents, and adults who have, or have experienced, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma. She also welcomes the opportunity to work with any individual interested in improving their general mental health and well-being.
Maddie wants her clients to feel empowered by developing an awareness of their emotions and a language they can use to talk about their feelings and experiences. She is honored to have the opportunity to meet people wherever they are on their mental health journey and to walk alongside them, helping to guide and support them as needed.
When Maddie is not working, she loves to travel and spend time with friends and family. She also recharges with regular yoga practice and hanging out with her dog, Scout.
