Melanie Bettes Hite


About Me

I’m a licensed counselor in 3 states (Kansas, Wyoming, and Missouri) with experience since 2016 in helping people find their best solutions to life’s difficulties and challenges. I have specific experience with couples, life transitions, women, and parenting issues, along with many others. I have also worked specifically with anxiety and depression, as well as recovery from abuse.

Many clients have told me they feel at ease with me right away, as I have a warm and friendly nature. Rather than bore you with details about my approach, I’ll keep it simple. I help you think through the problem in the most rational way possible, and find new solutions to the challenge. Sometimes I utilize metaphor and storytelling, but most often, it’s the simple approach of having a person to be a sounding board…..that friend who tells you what you need to hear, rather than just what you want to hear, and helps you make sense out of what’s happening around you and your feelings about it.

You’ve made it this far. Let's keep going. I’m excited to begin!

I am so glad I was matched with Melanie. She was responsive, professional, warm, encouraging, and I feel I walked away knowing more about my situation and with more skills to help me. Well worth my time.
