I am a licensed professional counselor with over 13 years of experience working with people of all ages as a therapist. I have worked with people managing depression, anxiety, anger problems, family conflicts, and ADHD. I also have experience working with people who struggle with substance use disorders. Many of my clients have a past history of abuse and trauma and I have helped them process this along with grief and the struggle to move forward.
My style of therapy is warm, compassionate, and caring, as I accept my clients where they are and walk with them along their journey toward wholeness. I tend to lean toward a client-centered approach with cognitive-behavioral strategies to assist clients with thinking through the way they manage problems to improve the outcomes. I will work with each client to set goals that are specific and individualized for their needs.
I always keep in mind that it takes strength and courage to seek help because change is a hard thing. We can do hard things! When you are ready, I am here to provide support, encouragement, and empowerment to help you along the way. I look forward to working with you!

Melanie does a good job of balancing letting me vent/ talk it out with offering feedback, advice and actionable instruction. I really appreciate her understanding and her professional opinion.
