Melissa Spino, MA, LLPC, CDMS, Counselor in Lowell
You're not a diagnosis or label but a unique individual. I won't treat you like "patient" because you're not one. We'll work together to reach your goals so you can start to "live the life you want." If you're having difficulties because your life seems out of control, it may be time to get help. When life gets difficult, I'm here to help. You're not alone. Contact me today. I offer short & long-term therapy options and day & evening hours. See website for full list of services, groups and seminars.
I'm a licensed counselor in Michigan with a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I offer mental health services, life coaching, & pain management. I offer one free hour of mental health services weekly to a veteran. As a Certified Disability Management Specialist, I offer Vocational Rehabilitation & MCM.
I don't believe in labeling people for insurance purposes or insurance access to your confidential records so I don't bill insurance. I only accept cash or check at appointments. Insurance reimbursement may be possible but check your insurance company's reimbursement requirements before attending therapy.
