Deserie Melissa Charles is not currently accepting new clients.
I have worked with a variety of clients, diagnoses, and life circumstances. I primarily see adults that cope with anxiety and depression, difficult transitions as well as problems within their interpersonal/romantic relationships. I find the work to be very rewarding and make every effort to join with each client as we work to understand how their past and present experiences contribute to their current situations. I believe that we live out cycles/patterns that begin early in our life and manifest over the course of our adulthood. It is important to explore and understand them to make changes.
I work with a wide range of diagnoses, including anxiety and depressive disorders. Additionally, I work with clients that experience challenges with adjustments, self esteem and difficulties within interpersonal relationships. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques, while integrating practical problem-solving solutions and enhancing self-awareness.
I believe that connecting your thought patterns with their origin leads to insights and changes. This can be tough work, BUT my style of interacting is pretty easy going and I love a good laugh. That said, in the midst of understanding yourself and your relationships as well as developing your way of thinking, there will be laughs and lightheartedness.
