Maddox holds a Master’s of Social Work from Fordham University, where he concentrated on applied clinical skills and modalities for young adult, queer, and transgender populations. He has previously worked with young adults at The New School’s Office of Student Support and Advocacy, and gained additional clinical experience working with queer and transgender young adults with a variety of clinical presentations at the IHI Therapy Center. Having experience in both of these contexts gives Maddox additional knowledge and insight into the complexities of mental health management in young adulthood and how that can impact identity formation. During his time at Fordham, Maddox also conducted research on the mental health needs of Latina young adults, which contributed to being awarded the Peter B Vaughan NASW Student Award upon graduating.
Maddox utilizes an integrative therapeutic approach, drawing from modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing to provide high-quality, individualized treatment to his clients. A steadfast believer in the power of the therapeutic relationship, Maddox strives to collaborate with his clients to build trust, rapport, and a space that feels supportive and affirming. Maddox has specific passion and expertise in working with queer and transgender young adults, for whom specialized support and resources are both sorely needed and often difficult to find.
Maddox is also a native New Yorker who was proudly born and raised on the Upper West Side, and therefore has some excellent bagel recommendations. He spends much of his spare time biking, baking, and walking in the park with his dog, Finn.
