Melanie Trevino

(MA, LPC, NCC)

About Me

My name is Melanie; I am a board certified and licensed professional counselor supporting clients struggling with issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, or major life changes. Oftentimes we find ourselves at a crossroads and become stunted by indecision and fear. I offer a warm, affirming space to empower my clients to take charge of their peace of mind through those challenging times.

My foundational approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (helping others understand how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors affect each other); however, my style is adaptive and holistic; it is guided by the individual needs of each client. I believe that healing is a collaborative process that requires honest caring without judgment, and I cooperatively assist my clients in clarifying their goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one style for all individuals and issues, I draw from a variety of methods to create a tailored approach for each individual and situation. As a therapist, I am open, encouraging, and direct. I have over 6 years of experience working with adults and teens in community mental health in the following areas:
Mood Disorders
Anxiety Disorders
PTSD
Personality Disorders
Anger & Stress Management
Substance Use
Intimate Partner Violence
Parent/Child Relationship Problems
Non-Suicidal Self-Harm
