Melissa has experience working with adults, college age students, and adolescents. Clinical issues that she has the most experience with includes personality disorders, depression, trauma, grief, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem issues, obsessive and compulsive behaviors, and stress management. A main focus of treatment is to establish a therapeutic alliance with the client. Melissa believes that having a good connection helps facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcomes. In therapy, she is supportive, compassionate, and present with individuals both in times of struggle as well as times of achievement.
Melissa’s counseling style combines strength-based, cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, emotional focused and solution-focused approaches to help individuals achieve their therapeutic goals. Identifying one's strengths and the coping skills that can be used to help work through various issues is an important part of her therapy approach.
Melissa values each individual therapeutic relationship and empathizes with the different emotions a client experiences in treatment. She believes each individual has the ability to overcome struggles and that having additional support in the form of therapy can help one to better identify and recognize the coping skills and strengths they already possess.
