Hi, my name is Melissa Morales. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Sacramento, California. I have over 20 years of experience providing crisis intervention, counseling, and case management services in the hospital, Emergency Department & outpatient clinic behavioral health setting. I have extensive experience working with individuals, children & families in crisis and who have experienced trauma, loss and grief, and who regularly cope with a large variety of behavioral health needs.
I like to work with a large variety of people & adolescents. Most of my experience has been working with clients who suffer from depression and/or anxiety, parent-child relationships, individuals experiencing loss, grief & trauma to extreme presentations of psychosis, severe depression & suicidal ideation.
During the first session, clients can expect the session to be comfortable and light. Usually just trying to get information on who the client is, why they are seeking therapy, and what they are hoping to gain through the therapeutic process.
