About Robin Maddox, LMFT

EDUCATION

I received my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northwestern University.  After graduation, I was selected to be the Clinical Fellow at The Family Institute at Northwestern University.  Throughout my fellowship I was extensively trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy within the context of family systems.  After my fellowship I transitioned to the role of staff therapist where I remained for a few years before starting my private practice.  

BACKGROUND

Prior to my graduate level work, I was a special education teacher, which helps inform my work with children and their parents.  I am highly specialized in working with parents of children and adolescents with learning difficulties and school anxiety. I am an advocate for my clients in the school system and I am highly knowledgeable on how to get children’s individual needs met at school.

FAMILY

Of all my roles being a mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend are among the most important to me.  I use my experience in these complex roles to validate your experience and bring a level of understanding to the challenges in yours and your families life.
