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.
