Melissa Bollinger-Kinney is not currently accepting new clients.
Melissa has experience working with a diverse population struggling with depression, self-mutilation, anxiety, panic, trauma, low self-esteem, identity issues, stress, anger, parenting & relationship issues as well as grief and loss. She also provides school-linked mental health for teens, allowing clinical therapy discretely in school and is billed through private insurance. Melissa believes that the patterns of our mind that keep us trapped in emotional suffering are fundamentally the same patterns of mind that stand between us and the growth towards our potential for a more deeply satisfying way of being.
25 years of clinical experience working with teens, adults, families, and couples. Melissa’s approach encompasses a blend of CBT, DBT, Solution-Focused, and Adlerian therapy. She has trained in DBT as well as Trauma-Focused CBT. Melissa is a board approved clinical supervisor with years of experience mentoring credentialing therapists, and student interns
Each person experiences the stress of the human condition in highly individualized fashion. Melissa tailors her approach to each individual and meets the client where they are at. Growth in therapy is the process of building your emotional toolbox. Melissa utilizes mindfulness in her work and strives for a holistic, compassionate, thoughtful approach.
