Meet Amy Madson

When faced with a challenge, we can either live with it, find new coping skills, or make changes. As a therapist with a broad education and unique skill set, I am well-positioned to help you, your child, and your family develop new ways of facing challenges.

I have experience working as a licensed marriage and family therapist, am a fellow in the Association for Music and Imagery, and also as a board-certified music therapist. I also have extensive training in music and imagery techniques. I have worked in private practice with tweens, adolescents, adults, and older adults using psychotherapy, creative arts therapy, and music therapy. I have presented at conferences, published articles in my field, and supervised interns. I feel it is important to keep up to date on new developments in my field and very much enjoy doing so. I have worked in many levels of care, ranging from inpatient through outpatient, and I have worked in many settings, including: nonprofits, treatment centers, and schools.
