Give it some thought and if you feel my professional experiences coupled with my therapeutic style might be a good fit for you or your child , contact me for free consultation.
I will support the growth of teens and adults who struggle with self confidence, decision making, relationships, and planning for the future. Exploration will begin with examining home life, social skills, and aspects of career or school. If one is struggling with any of these elements, it is likely having a negative impact on other areas. In addition, I can improve a student-athlete's performance in competition. By taking the same approach, an athlete can maximize their potential by identifying and improving other areas of their life away from the game.

I enjoy working with a variety of clients and presenting problems - whether that means helping you to help your child sleep through the night, negotiating for what you want in your personal life, dealing with stresses caused by good and bad changes in your life, or living with serious mental illness.
“Life is hard…but does it have to be this hard?” No, it doesn’t. Many people are worried, stressed, unhappy, or not coping with life’s ups and downs. Psychotherapy is a way to help you live your life, cope well, learn from current or long-term challenges, and even thrive in the midst of them. I would like to help you understand your current circumstances and collaborate with you to get you to where you want to be.

I am experienced in working with children , adults, families, and couples, specializing in trauma, complex trauma, and secondary trauma.
Currently only taking appointments virtually. Change does not always present as a straight path, this is why working with a therapist can be empowering. While working on becoming the person you want to be, our sessions can be used as a learning opportunity without having judgement, or pressure of expectations upon you. I am passionate about helping you be your best self, despite trauma, triggers or behaviors you may experience. Change as well as working through trauma can be terrifying, but when accomplished it can help you create the life you wish to live.

I have extensive experience working with children and families.
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.

Whether life is presenting current challenges or the trauma you experienced in your past is preventing you from living in the present, therapy can be a powerful tool to help process those intense emotions and find ways to soothe. Enduring trauma can prevent us from living our life to the fullest, whether it’s repetitive negative thoughts, physical responses, painful memories, or feeling overwhelmed with everyday stressors. Emma provides a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to heal and gain new insights on their own unique experiences. Emma works with all developmental ages; including children , adolescents, and adults.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
