I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker after I retired from the Army due to medical issues. I have a unique perspective into what happens during a combat deployment and the long-term impact it has on the military member and their family. I began my career by focusing on the issues that relate to military/veteran families and have found that they are very similar to issues found in society as a whole. The causes of the issues differ but the results are similar.
When working with clients I strive to make the therapy experience genuine, positive, respectful, and safe. I firmly believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in doing great things and overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! I am excited to meet you and work together to identify your goals and make plans to achieve them!

Melinda is a great therapist
I’m very thankful to be able to work with Melinda. She is great
Guides me in self realization, reactions etc. Finding solutions that work for me as an individual.
Love my therapist, she has helped me more in 3 months than conventional therapy in 2 years.
Melinda has given me so many tools, resources, techniques, etc to help me overcome my anxiety and insecurities. She has brought a lot of clarity to me about how I view things in general. I strongly recommend her!
She is amazing. Yes, she asks tough questions but she is good. She really makes you think.
Melinda is working with me very closely on exactly what I feel is holding me back and keeping me frozen about a lot of things in my life! I love her!!!
Very understanding that life happens. Highly knowledgable in her field of work
Easy to be open with, has been very helpful
I meant to put strongly agree in the first question! Melinda helps me a lot!
Melinda is great!! She listens well, helps me put things in perspective, and is helping me grow on my journey. I appreciate her so much!
Melinda is great. Very easy to get along with. She makes me laugh, she listens to me, she understands what I'm going through and never makes me feel ashamed. She has given me great advice in only 6 sessions and I am making a lot of progress with my panic/anxiety/agoraphobia already. It's really hard to find a therapist you click with. I've searched for years and I genuinely feel like I've finally found that with Melinda. She's great! :)
Absolutely wonderful. I feel heard, she helps me have breakthroughs, and helps me come up with strategies to combat my problems.
Melinda has been very helpful. She is very down to earth and has helped with understanding ways to cope with stress. I definitely recommend her!
I think she’s great
Listened very well and cut straight to the chase. I appreciate her candor.
So far I really am loving my session with her! She is giving me hope!
She is a good therapist I like her so far I haven't had her long but so far I like her
She made me feel comfortable right off the bat to open up, which is something I often struggle with. For the first time in a long time I don’t feel alone. If you’ve experienced trauma in your life I highly recommend her.
Melinda Clinton is a very good fit for me. She listens to my concerns and supports me while also providing a second point of view, to help me make informed decisions. I do not feel judged by her, or scared to share any aspect of my life. I am extremely pleased with the help she has provided me.
Very comprehensive discussions, asks open ended questions. I appreciate our discussions.
I only had two sessions with her. However I feel like she is doing a great job.
