Madeline Fox

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I specialize in a systemic approach to therapy, helping clients understand how their unique constellation of relationships affects their life. Together we navigate questions relating to sexual health and dissatisfaction - and the broader relational issues that affect your most intimate interactions.

My Approach

I work with individuals to identify repetitive thoughts, ingrained expectations and outlooks that aren’t serving them and together we work to develop skills to address your unique challenges. We've structured modern life around the idea that one big relationship should be everything: the place where you get acceptance and intimacy, friendship and love, spontaneity and mischief. Everything all rolled into one. And for so many, and maybe you too, it’s just not working. Are you feeling deep sadness when you consider your life? Do you often struggle with feelings of hurt, disappointment, or anger? Do you feel like you just can’t ‘figure out’ how to make you life or relationships work? If you’re experiencing one (or many) of these, it’s time to shake things up. You don’t have to struggle through this alone, I’m committed to providing empowering guidance and insight to help you move forward toward the life you want to be living.

My Background

I have a Masters of Arts degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy with an emphasis in sex therapy from Lewis and Clark College. In 2016, I worked with Esther Perel and Terry Real in their Relate training program to more comprehensively understand the intersection of love, sex, and power, in modern relationships. In November of 2017, I engaged in more training with Esther Perel around rethinking infidelity and better understanding how to work with couples and individuals who are struggling to maintain desire and vitality within their relationships. I am currently serving as a board member for the Oregon Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. When I’m not helping clients build healthy sex lives my favorite pastimes are singing around campfires, seeking out Portland’s most delicious bagels, and waiting for that magical spring moment when it’s time to switch from pour-over to cold-brew coffee.
