Hi! My name Melissa Sherman, but I go by Maxi. I am a licensed clinical social worker with 12 years of experience working in various settings with adolescents, adults, and families. I specialize in treating individuals who are navigating anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, grief/loss, and chronic illness. I take a client-centered, strengths-based approach to treatment. I believe in the power of establishing a strong rapport with clients, and I provide a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental space where you can safely express your thoughts and feelings while working on self-identified goals.
I will help you gain deeper self-awareness in order to manage life stressors, alleviate symptoms, improve relationships, and facilitate personal growth. I take an eclectic approach to treatment, drawing on various evidenced-based modalities, to best meet your individual needs. I hope to support you in working toward an improved quality of life.
It takes energy and courage to start therapy. While it may feel uncomfortable at first, you are in control of what happens, and you can build trust at your own pace. The therapist-client relationship is unique, and I am excited about the opportunity to connect with you, provide ongoing support, and empower you to better manage life's challenges.
