Most of my clients bring individual and marital issues. They seek on-going inner peace, the lowering of distress factors, happiness in their relationships, and/or a vision and hope. Some seek to integrate both personal development and spiritual development. Most seek to find happiness, success, and personal satisfaction. Whether anxious, depressed, or seeking career satisfaction, my clients want to expand their inner peacefulness, resolve old conflicts, and move forward into a more successful life. When a person seeks to resolve conflict with self, life-partners, spouse, friends etc., I welcome them and invite them to journey with me in therapy.

I help people work through the difficulties that come when our emotional lives or relationships are upset. I work to help you identify and address the patterns in relationships and the feelings that can leave us depressed, anxious, disconnected; grieving. My role is to listen​ to your story with care and attention, seeking to understand what has happened. This may lead me to share my ideas about how I see and understand you and what you bring in to talk about. Together we work to resolve the difficulties you are having by helping you connect with yourself and others.

Taking the next step can be intimidating, difficult and even humbling. A different perspective may help you create balance and a renewed sense of stability. It is my intention to help you expand your life beyond the “couch,” where even the smallest of adjustments can make a huge impact. One of the most crucial parts of the therapeutic process is connection. I approach each session with warmth and an empathetic, listening ear to provide you a space where you feel heard, understood, and hopeful for your future.

Life can be messy. Thoughts and emotions can have a mind of their own and it can all feel very out of control. We live in a fast paced world and it feels hard to manage your life in a way that is comfortable for you. You might have ideas about what you want your life to look like, but have not had success meeting those goals.

Hi! I'm Jamie. I am here to offer you a safe space to process your experiences, heal from your wounds, and start to live again. Everyone carries something of their past with them. Those of us that have faced trauma often carry our past into our present. Trauma can be the result of emotional abuse, sexual assault, domestic abuse, military service, incarceration, or as an outcome of serving others with trauma. Trauma often looks like anxiety, depression, loneliness, or low self-esteem. Together, we will conquer the past and help you reach your goals through a variety of therapeutic techniques.

Accepting new clients with openings this week. I’m Melissa, a Licensed Social Worker, in Ohio and Michigan; with a master's degree in Social Work that I obtained from Cleveland State University. I also hold a Pupil Services Social Worker registration which allows me to practice in a school setting. I have always wanted to help people, and I never realized how I could tie that into a career path and love my job so that it didn't feel like work. I stepped into the world of counseling 11 years ago and haven't looked back. I believe that the key to therapy is meeting clients where they are and acknowledging that change takes courage.

What type of Ada 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ada?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
