Announcement icon Currently, I am providing Telehealth sessions through my confidential client portal.
Hi! My name is Melissa Buchanan and I would love the chance to hear your story and walk alongside you on your journey. As a therapist, I aim to be in your corner, creating a safe place to help you process, think outside the box, and feel supported through tough and exciting moments. I believe many factors impact who you are today (such as your upbringing or culture and relationship influences), but they do not have to determine your future. While counseling with me, we can get through your concerns together, focusing more on your hopes and dreams for the future, in lieu of the things weighing you down and causing you pain.
My foundational therapeutic approach is Client-Centered because I believe every individual is unique and requires their own specific support. I have experience with a range of concerns from anxiety to depression to divorce and have been exposed to a variety of personalities, helping others from different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences.
Whether you are new to therapy or not, I personally believe going to therapy is one of the strongest things you can do! Contact me to set up a consultation today. “Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.” Mr. Rogers
