Madison Akins is a Mental Health Counselor and works as a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) on our Integrated Behavioral Health team. BHCs at Community Care Physicians are licensed mental health providers and social workers. Many are embedded within our practices working side by side with your doctor and health care team in delivering you the best “whole person” healthcare possible.
Madison’s background includes individual counseling focusing primarily on pediatrics and family counseling with parents and children. She has worked with individuals with a wide variety of mental/ behavioral health issues, including depression, anxiety, stress management, ADHD, and sleep disturbance. Madison also holds a certificate in interdisciplinary trauma studies. In addition to her experience at our Integrated Behavioral Health practice, she also worked at Northern Rivers with children and adolescents with various mental and behavioral issues, as well as working with parents on parent skill training and behavioral interventions for their children.
Madison has always enjoyed helping others in any way she can, being an ear for those in need, and providing guidance and support to others. She is passionate about promoting mental health awareness and normalizing behavioral health. In doing this, she particularly enjoys helping to end the stigma around mental illness by educating children, adolescents, and parents and providing them with an opportunity to freely explore their emotions and experiences and work towards becoming the best version of themselves.
Madison volunteers as a youth basketball coach each year to give back to her hometown. She also enjoys exercising, watching, coaching, and playing basketball, bringing her dog Celtic on walks and hikes, spending time with friends and family, cooking, and being on the beach whenever possible!
