Hello! My name is Madyson Sniecinski, although I typically go by Mady. I am currently a graduate student at Western Michigan University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. I graduated from Central Michigan University in 2019 with an associate’s degree in event management and a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Ever since I was a little girl, I really enjoyed helping people so when I found out I could do it for a living I was sold! I am interested in working with adults, adolescents, and children ages 8 and up.
Here is a little bit of information about me! My parents separated when I was an infant and both of my stepparents came into my life when I was two years old. I am the oldest of my siblings, I have three brothers and one sister. The age gap between my youngest sibling and I is 10 and ½ years. While in undergrad, I was a camp counselor for one summer where I worked with adolescent girls from ages 7 to 16. After I graduated from CMU, I began working at an autism center with adolescents aged 8 to 18, after a few months I transitioned to working with children ages 2 to 8 and I did this for about a year and a half before coming to grad school. During my time in school, I am a nanny. Because of this, I have a lot of experience with children and adolescents!
I am offering both in-person and telehealth services. It is my goal to create a trusting and safe environment where you feel comfortable to open up and be yourself without fear of judgment. I understand that each and every person is unique so I will work collaboratively with you throughout the entire process to help ensure that you are getting the most out of your time.
I believe that no one knows you better than you know yourself. I will try my very best to understand your worldview, values, and beliefs so that we can work together on setting goals and creating effective change throughout the therapy process. I want to empower you to be able to navigate through the ups and downs of life. In order to accomplish that, I am interested in employing a wide range of theories in order to help you reach your goals such as Person-Centered, Strengths Based, Solution Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
When you are ready, I invite you to reach out so that we could navigate through this journey together.
