About

Hello! My name is Melissa and I am a National Certified Counselor and LPC. I have 13 years of experience in the mental health field with 7 of those years providing outpatient therapy at a local agency serving primarily children, adolescents, and their families. I enjoy working primarily with adolescents (14+) and adults dealing with life stressors, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and emotional regulation issues. Let me help you on your journey as you build upon your strengths and learn skills to effectively manage your mental well being.
I believe that the most important aspect to treatment is building a strong therapeutic relationship with trust and respect. I primarily utilize a client-centered, CBT approach within my sessions but will also pull from other modalities as it pertains to your needs.
I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help when you need it the most. I invite you to take the next step in overcoming the obstacles you face while in the presence of a safe and compassionate space. Allow me to help guide you and give you the tools needed to find balance within your life. If interested, the best way to reach me is by email.
