Maddie Murphy, MA, MFT, LPCC
Therapist & Counselor
Maddie Murphy is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Doctor of Educational Leadership. She has been working with clients in community practices and students in schools for the last 14 years.
Maddie’s vast experience working with teenagers/young adults and their families has been some of her favorite work. She enjoys supporting families during transitional times and believes these can lead to beautiful new beginnings in the family system.
Throughout her career she has gravitated towards being a mentor and advocate for women of all ages. Every day she is excited to do what she is most passionate about – giving women the healing space to be seen and heard to reach their fullest potential at the Colorado Women’s Center. She believes that learning how to balance one’s social-emotional needs, academics/career, interests, and relationships, in conjunction with learning how to take care of their own health is a delicate walk. Supporting women as they traverse this walk through every stage of life has become Maddie’s favorite part about her work. She enjoys integrating mindfulness, creativity/art, social-emotional learning into her sessions.
Maddie works through different lenses to create an organic environment for her therapy sessions: cognitive-behavioral therapy, human-centered therapy, experiential therapy, solution-focused therapy, and family systems therapy. She specializes in Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, trauma-informed care, parenting, career/graduate school, life changes/transitions, grief and loss, LGBTQ+, relationships, disordered eating, attachment, and codependency.
Maddie lives with her partner, dog, cat, and is a bonus-parent to a 6-year-old. She loves spending time camping and hiking in the warmer months. She enjoys traveling and feels that it is a great way to really learn about yourself, with her favorite places being Peru and Northern California. As she is a lifelong learner, she hopes to learn how to sew and raise chickens!
