Hi there, I’m Madeline Fox, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist through the state of Oregon.

I specialize in a systemic approach to therapy, helping clients understand how their unique constellation of relationships affects their life. Together we navigate questions relating to sexual dissatisfaction, disfunction, and disappointment - and the broader relational issues that affect your most intimate interactions. I work with individuals, couples, and welcome those with poly or kink lifestyles and those identifying as LGBTQ+.

I have a Masters of Arts degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy with an emphasis in sex therapy from Lewis and Clark College. I experienced working with diverse patients as a therapist in multiple community mental health settings. In 2016, I worked with Esther Perel and Terry Real in their Relate training program to more comprehensively understand the intersection of love, sex, and power, in modern relationships. In November of 2017, I engaged in more training with Esther Perel around rethinking infidelity and better understanding how to work with couples and individuals who are struggling to maintain desire and vitality within their relationships. I served as a board member for the Oregon Association for Marriage and Family Therapy from 2016 to 2019. 

I’m centrally located in downtown Portland, Oregon and can converse in English and Spanish depending on your need.

When I’m not helping clients build healthy sex lives my favorite pastimes are singing around campfires, seeking out Portland’s most delicious bagels, and waiting for that magical spring moment when it’s time to switch from pour-over to cold-brew coffee.

‘We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.’
