Hello my name is Melinda Gladden and I am a licensed billingual clinical social worker. I have been in the field for four years working with adults, children, families, and adolescents providing individual, group, and family therapy. My practice specialties are working with parents, behavior modification techniques, social skills training, intellectual disabilities, anxiety, depression, and trauma focused. I utilize evidence based models such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, MATCH, Social Thinking, Seeking Safety, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

Melinda has helped me navigate through choppy waters with excellent advice. She really has helped bring sunshine back in my life. I had to stop therapy because I moved for a short time, and noticed a huge difference. I'm glad I'm back talking to her and feel she makes a huge difference. I see things clearly and she is truly a professional but also sweet and great person to talk to
Melinda is a very supportive and upbeat counsellor. She's great for issues regarding anxiety, trauma, relationships and depression. Whatever you need help with--she is motivated to help you with your specific goals. My goals have changed since I have started counseling and Melinda has risen to the occasion and been very adaptive. She is also flexible in terms of scheduling, which is definitely a plus.
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!
Very personable and naturally just positive and encouraging. Very supportive of my needs.
