MADISON BRIGHTWELL LMFT, C.Ht., PsyD candidate

Lead Therapist at New Healing Journeys – Marriage & Family Therapy

I always treat every client as a unique and special individual who I can empower to find their own inner guidance and healing ability. I love what I do and I feel this is my purpose in life. I specialize in helping people with addictions, pain, trauma and mood disorders such as anxiety, depression and anger. It is my belief that addictions, pain and trauma are closely linked and it is my mission to break the cycle of despair that keeps people trapped in pain, whether it is emotional or physical.

I have a behavioral approach to counseling, and I believe in working to help the client by looking at where they are right now and enabling them to move forward in a more positive direction with their lives.

Treatment Approach

I have a very creative approach to my work and enjoy using expressive arts to help people discover a new self-identity. My unique experience as a performing artist helps me to find creative ways to move people out of their negative patterns of behavior and transform their lives.

I trained at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute and I have been helping clients for eight years using medical hypnotherapy, guided imagery, NLP, and Rational Hypnotherapy (a type of hypnotherapy certified by the NACBT that uses a blending of CBT techniques with guided imagery).
