Maddie Krause

Sometimes we go through seasons in life where our emotions overwhelm us, to the point where it’s difficult to think straight. Sometimes it seems like we will never be able to feel like “ourselves”, or experience joy again. 

The truth is that we can, and we will. Together, we can help you feel like “you” again, and perhaps an even better, more fulfilled “you” than before. 

Hi friends. My name is Maddie Krause. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHC-A) here at Mathews Counseling and I would love to be the person who helps guide you on this journey back to yourself, or towards the person that you know you are meant to be. 

I work with adolescents and adults facing a variety of obstacles including but not limited to, anxiety, depression, adjustment, trauma, ADHD, and concerns related to relationships and/or sexuality. 

Therapy is a collaborative process, meaning that together, we will work on developing and achieving the goals that are important to you, in whatever season you may be in. You are the expert on your life and I am here to help you unpack whatever trials and tribulations you may have experienced or are currently experiencing. I am here to empower you and encourage you through this process of self-discovery. 

Whether your goal is to improve your relationships, manage stress, or uncover and work through the source(s) of your anxiety/depression, we will bring your story to light and ensure you have the tools to write the rest of it in the way that best serves you. 

I work from a strength-based approach so that while we will talk about your concerns, whatever they may be, we will also focus on what is working for you, and the personal, cultural, and spiritual strengths that have been with you all along. I draw on many different counseling theories and techniques depending on each client’s specific needs/desires, including Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Psychodynamic Theory, Multicultural Feminist Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Somatic Experiencing, and Solution-Focused Theory. 

About me: I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC-A) and received my M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. I received my B.S. in Psychology from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, where I also minored in Spanish. 

When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, listening to podcasts, and spending time with my partner and our two sweet pups. I spend time doing “self-care” by exercising, journaling, resting, and getting still in nature. You can almost always find me with a cup of coffee in my hand and a furry friend close by. 

I know it is not always easy to take the first step in deciding that therapy is suitable for you. So I want to thank you for being here. I encourage you to continue exhibiting your bravery by taking the next step and scheduling an appointment with me.

What our clients are saying about Mathews Counseling therapists

“Therapy was tough, but in a good way. It challenged both my husband and me to think about how each of us interacts in the marriage.”

“After seeing several counselors elsewhere, this was the first time I felt genuinely heard and understood.”

“My husband was worried about the therapist “taking sides”, which doesn’t happen.  It’s a collaborative conversation and we are delving into other issues that were not readily on the surface.”
