Madison Briggs

Madison S. Briggs MS, LCMHC, NCC About: Over the past decade, the importance of mental health has been brought to the forefront of the conversation. My goal is to normalize and de-stigmatize the utilization of therapeutic interventions. I recognize the courage that it takes to ask for professional support, and I am strongly committed to helping you navigate some of life’s most difficult challenges.   I have been working in the mental health field for over 5  years; within this time, I gained experience working with children ages 5 and up, adolescents/teens, adults, couples,  and families. From these experiences, I have developed a  passion for working with individuals dealing with depression,  anxiety, personality disorders, behavioral concerns, anger management, relationships, and life transitions. Utilizing an eclectic approach, I specialize in Cognitive  Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment  Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). My goal is to provide an individualized, person-centered counseling experience that facilitates a positive change and helps you achieve your goals.  ​

Sara Martin

Sara M. Martin MA, MA, LMFT About: Welcome. :) My clients are intelligent, cognitively, somatically, and/or empathic. They care about growth towards greater health and balance, relationally and professionally. From a body felt and practical sense, they would like to feel met, seen and valued, as is true of all of us. I work from a calm, clear, non-judgmental, warm, fun, skilled and compassionate place, who can connect to what is being shared. I am in my mid 50's. I personally know multiple forms of trauma and have found greater health and healing through each of their unique and similar forms. I focus where you are. I help create intentions that are mutually agreeable. I offer a choice on how we go about reaching intentions. I keep things present tense, while also creating the safety to touch into and integrate the deepest of traumatic material, somatically, cognitively, and relationally. I help you feel more at ease in the mind and body. I have the intention to see hear meet you right where you are. I would be honored to help you find greater health, peace, love, and light of your soul. I look to supporting you in your transformation to a place that is just where YOU want to be!
