My name is Melanie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have over 20 years experience working with people from all walks of life who have experienced all types of life issues. I work from an authentic judgement free perspective using a client centered trauma informed approach. I believe in treating the whole person (mind, body, soul and spirit). I like to spend time getting to know each other to ensure a good fit for therapy. Some of the treatment modalities I use in conjunction with this approach include; Strengths Based, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Biblical soul care.
I have been in private practice for the past 11 years, before that I worked in inpatient and outpatient settings, in school settings as well as having worked as a clinical director for a crisis center. My practice background includes working with people who may have experienced; depression, anxiety, addiction, family conflict, personal growth, relationship issues, Trauma, abuse, victims of crime, people in crisis, people who have adjustment issues and some who have a crisis of faith .
I completed my undergrad in Social Work at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in 1999.
I graduated in 2006 with a Masters in Social Work is from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. I completed the 4000 hours of supervised clinical time necessary to set for a clinical license and obtained my LCSW in 2014.
I would love to help you become the best version of yourself!
