Melissa Benedict is not currently accepting new clients.
I have been providing services to children, adolescents, and families in the field of child welfare since 2009. I specialize in issues related to foster care, adoption, trauma, PTSD, and grief and loss. I am also experienced working with depression, anxiety, anger management, self-esteem, career issues, and much more. I have an integrative counseling style that incorporates elements from Strength-based Solution-focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy. I'm also trained and experienced with Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
You are the expert of your life and the captain of your ship, but every captain needs a crew. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I'm here to help you maneuver around barriers, highlight your strengths, and use those strengths to navigate your ship where you want it to go.
Starting therapy can be scary and intimidating, but it can also be empowering and uplifting. Contact me and I can address any questions and concerns you have. Together, we can get your ship back on the course you have planned.
