Caroline Madden, MFT is Los Angeles based pro-marriage therapist and internationally known author and lecturer. Her writing focuses on difficult relationship topics such as: parental death, emotional affairs, another types of infidelity in marriage.
Madden graduated in 1993 from Cornell University with a BS in Labor Relations and worked for a number of years in Labor Relations/Human Resources in the private sector and government. She believes that her extensive training in conflict resolution and collective bargaining gave her tools to later help even the most difficult couples.
In 2001, Madden earned her Master of Arts in Psychology from Phillips Graduate Institute. Her training covered all areas of psychotherapy but centered on relationship dynamics. In her training to become a therapist, she worked in a variety of settings... including jail. Again, she feels this training has helped her understand difficult marriages (cellmates for life) better.
Since opening her private practice, Madden has focused her couples counseling on helping people save their marriages after infidelity. Most of her individual therapy clients are men; creating a safe space for men to decide what to do in their relationships and help them recover from broken hearts is one of her primary therapeutic services, one that she takes quite seriously.
Madden is the married mother of two young boys. She's been in the same loving relationship for almost two decades and understands first-hand that even the best relationships take work.
