Madeline Cohen, LCMHCA
Welcome!! My name is Madeline and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate. I strive to hold a safe and authentic space for my clients where they can feel supported. Creating a therapeutic relationship is vital to fostering a space of mental healing, and I aim to create that with my clients.
I believe you are the expert on your own life, and I can provide support and encouragement to assist you in meeting your chosen goals and process your experiences without judgment. We will consider the social, cultural, and political contexts that contribute to your presenting concerns. I will be there for you by listening, empathizing, offering suggestions and alternatives, challenging, and providing you the tools to foster psychological growth. It is an important value of mine that clients who are LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC feel safe in session with me. I also love to work with clients of all relationship types, religious (or non religious) values, and different backgrounds.
I grew up in Charlotte, but in 2016 ended up moving to Boone and attending Appalachian State University. While at App State, I received my Bachelors in Psychology with a concentration in Human Services. I also received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling there. I knew I couldn't leave the mountains, so I still call Boone my home, providing services to the community. During my Masters program, I completed practicum and internship at Appalachian State Counseling and Psychological Services. In that time, I discovered my passion for working with college students and young professionals experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, grief, major life changes, and other mental health concerns.
Some more info about me- for fun, I enjoy flow arts and fire spinning, skiing and snowboarding, hanging out with my guinea pig, Bean, and spending time in nature.
