Adria Cannon, MS-MFT, IBCLC

Adria is a Marriage and Family Therapist and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in the Madison (WI) Area. She supports parents as their children grow.


Her expertise is with families (mothers, fathers, couples, grandparents) during the first year of parenting. She focuses on how people change as they become parents — and how they continue to take on new roles as their children grow up, launch, and become parents themselves.

Adria also has interest and experience helping people facing the challenges of living with illness, either their own or as a caregiver.

Her career is at the intersection of physical and mental well-being. She has been learning from and working with parents as a peer volunteer and as a professional since 1991. She was a doula from 1991-1996, a La Leche League Leader (peer breastfeeding support) from 1995-2013, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2006, and weekly parent peer support group facilitator since 2010.

Adria graduated from Edgewood College with a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2018.
