I have been in the field for four years working with adults, children, families, and adolescents providing individual, group, and family therapy.

Melinda has a great personality and develops a real rapport with you over the phone very quickly. She is available for chat during part of the week, but she really shines over the phone when you get a chance to talk face to face. She is a great listener and gives great advice!

I'm so glad I chose BetterHelp. I work 6 days a week and long hours but needed some guidance and counsel. Melinda knows exactly what I'm looking for in therapy and I feel lighter each and every time we talk. She truly is a gem of a counselor and I'm so happy we got paired up. I always enjoy how in tune she is to everything I say.
