My name is Melandi Murrell, MA, LPC, NCC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of South Carolina. I have worked in the mental health and social work fields for 10+ years, and my expertise is related to working with individuals that experience hardships such as depression, anxiety, general life stressors, mood disorders, change, and etc. I specialize in working with a diverse range of individuals of all ages, including individuals, couples, and families. My previous experience includes working with adolescents and adults suffering from depression, anxiety, family conflict, relationship issues, and grief. Additionally, I have done work with clients involving career path, self-esteem/self-confidence, motivation, coping skills, parenting issues, life transitions, and everyday issues.
My therapy style is very warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is holistic and combines cognitive-behavioral (CBT), mindfulness, solution-focused brief therapy, and other treatment modalities. I individualize your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Melandi is an extremely attentive and knowledgeable therapist. I've seen the progress I've made since starting therapy with her. She is great at checking in as well. You can tell that she really enjoys what she does and she sure is making a positive impact. I would recommend her a million times over.

We’ve only chatted a few times but she has already been very helpful abs checks on me regularly. I’ve never been the therapy type just not my thing I tend to bottle emotions up and deal with them my own way.

Melandi has been wonderful to work with! She is very engaging and listens to your needs. I’ve never been more excited to have a weekly therapy session until I started receiving Melandi’s services. She is the kindest and most understanding person that you easily feel comfortable with. 10 out of 10 I would recommend working with her. She helps you find the light at the end of tunnel that I think a lot of Better Help consumers are looking for when seeking assistance.

Melandi has been of such a great help to me. She sees what I missed to see of my improvement with my mental health and self-care. I feel grateful for having such a positive, human and friendly interaction with my therapist.
