About me

“When we are no longer able to change a situation
-we are challenged to change ourselves.” [Viktor Frankl]

He really knew what he was talking about. Each life transition inevitably forces us to navigate unchartered water, but sometimes the challenge can be overwhelming. As a seasoned therapist, I like to think that I help people feel empowered, find meaning, and reclaim their lives. Like most therapists, I have worked in many areas while gaining vast experience in crisis stabilization, forensics, child abuse, divorce, anxiety, autism, aging, substance abuse, and depression. My approach is straightforward: we establish a problem-solving treatment plan together and go from there. This journey takes work. But it can be so rewarding.

Today’s world has changed. Everything is different. People are experiencing anxiety more than ever before. It can be overwhelming and frightening. It can interfere with daily living and start to control you. It feels bad. It feels wrong. Sometimes you can't see a solution. It is easier to navigate the waters with the guidance of a skilled therapist. I will create a safe place for our journey together. Take that first step and choose hope.

Currently I provide peer consultation/supervision to therapists and help them with case consultation, the business side of their practice, and confidence in approaching their work.

Ms. Melanie is God sent. She has a wealth of knowledge as a qualified supervisor and peer consultant and she shares that knowledge without limitations. I am so blessed to have come into a professional colleague relationship with her. There is never a time when I have needed to meet for an extra session or just need that boost of encouragement. She has been there every time. Jewels like Melanie is hard to find in our society today. She value and respect people no matter what diversity of nationality you come from and her love for God is a bonus. Wish I would have met her sooner but I know God had a purpose and a plan and this was his divine set up for me. Thank you Ms. Melanie for all that you do:)
