Jennifer Maddox, LCSW, MASM is a resiliency expert. For the past decade Jennifer has been working with families and individuals who have experienced significant trauma. What she discovered is that her passions lie in helping individuals who feel burnt out, traumatized and fed up recover, find their internal strength and assist them in igniting their personal power so that they can go forth and light up their world. Meaning, that often it is through trauma or heart ache that we find our strength and understanding of the value and precious nature of life.
She also holds two Master’s degrees in Social Work from University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work and in Specialized Ministry from Iliff School of Theology specializing in Peace and Social Justice and Pastoral Care, as well as, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from California State University, Fullerton.

I help individuals who feel burnt out, traumatized or fed up, turn their lives around. I have found through my years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in trauma, that it is often through trauma, heart ache or prolonged stress that my clients have learned that they actually are stronger and braver than they ever imagined. My clients learn to turn away from their painful past and turn to and ignite their own personal power, so that they can bravely go forth and light up their world and the lives of others. I am available to talk with you one on one or with your group!
I am your "turn to" expert on Resiliency. I help individuals who feel burnt out, traumatized or fed up, turn their lives around.
