I have 16 years of clinical experience working with a variety of populations including children, adolescents, adults, and geriatrics with emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric problems. I have experience helping clients sort through a multitude of personal and mental health issues including stress, depression, anxiety, anger management, coping skills, emotional disturbance, family conflict, relationship issues, life coaching, parenting, peer relationships, school issues, teen violence, motivation, self-esteem, and confidence.
I strive to be an authentic, warm, open, and a compassionate clinician. My mission is to help all my clients identify and accept their intrinsic worth. I hope to offer guidance and unconditional support that can help put my clients on the path towards discovering their highest self and fulfilling the purpose for their lives. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage and I am here to support you in that process.

She is absolutely amazing but I feel I need someone I can talk to on a more daily basis as my case is pretty bad. But she is absolutely amazing

Melinda is AMAZING!! I don't feel like I'm talking to a therapist I feel like I'm talking with my best friend! Melinda doesn't tell me what to do but supportsmy decisions and helps guide me to look at something differently. I went to her seeking help with a relationship and she has helped me grow so much in the two weeks that we have been talking. I look forward to our sessions and honestly I'm going to be a little bit sad when the day comes and she tells me I don't need her anymore.
