I enjoy working with adults who are interested in working through various concerns, such as stuck points, repeated problems in love or in themselves, that seem to persist. Helping teens that are dealing with low self-esteem, depressions, or anxiety is also a primary focus of my practice. My approach will allow you to explore your feelings and desires in depth in a environment that is safe and nonjudgmental. The outcomes vary, but many clients discover freedom from longstanding patterns of behavior or self-image. Others simply get free from needing perfection from themselves or others.

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 life's tough moments. I believe many factors impact who you are today (trauma, upbringing, culture, relationship influences, and more), but they do not have to determine your future. While counseling with me, we can get through your concerns together by identifying patterns and focusing more on your goals, in lieu of the things weighing you down and causing you pain.

As a certified Marriage & Family Therapist and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I offer an open minded, non-judgmental, and empathetic approach in a safe and supportive environment. Some problems, in our lives, are either self-imposed or imposed on us by other means. What we perceive might be different than reality. Negative beliefs affect us mentally and physically. Misinterpretations and irrational or self-defeating beliefs can create unhappy feelings, self-doubt, stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, etc.

Hi there! I'm Julianne, I love helping kids, teens, and young adults work through anxiety, depression, and life stressors better so they can thrive in young adulthood. I decided to become a counselor to help young people navigate through life easier. I understand how hard it can be to want to find a reliable support system but don't know where to turn. That's why I chose to dedicate my life to create a safe space for young people to do just that. My focus is on using a whole-person approach to managing anxiety, tackling depression, and move through life stressors better.

Most of my clients are unhappy with their current life, job or relationships. They feel pressured to stay with the "same ol', same ol'", anxious about making changes and entering the unknown, but sad at the thought of staying where they are. They yearn for someone to listen, really listen...for someone who feels completely nonjudgmental...for someone who is open and accepting, while also pointing out options perhaps never thought of before. They urgently want to feel mentally and emotionally clear, excited to move forward, and supported in THEIR life path, in their own faith or sense of identity and higher purpose.

“You’ve got your things together, but inside, you’re slowly coming apart. Do you constantly settle for less than you deserve? Are you tense and anxious? Is your relationship anxiety on overload? Are you constantly wondering what your partner is doing and if you are good enough? You know you need help because the idea of relaxing more only stresses you out. Has depression creeped in to where you are just going through the motions, are you feeling "numb"? Helping people uncover what’s underneath the stress and trauma and create a life filled with joy is what I do. Let's unpack.

Life is filled with many challenges. Sometimes the struggles feel like they are more than we can handle, and we just need an outside ear, some temporary professional support. No matter what the challenges, there is hope. Depression, anxiety, combat related leftovers, sexual or physical abuse, relationship troubles, parenting, affairs, grief and loss, infertility, stress. I specialize in two therapies clinically proven to be effective in dealing with two of life's biggest challenges: Trauma and Relationship Difficulties. I also work with the anxiety and depression that plague so many.

What type of Lakeland mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Lakeland?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
