About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I have always wanted to help others from a very young age. In early adulthood, I worked in children’s mental health as an in home provider to assist families that needed additional supports to maintain youths in their homes and communities to reduce the risk of entering a higher level of care.

As a counselor, I have five years experience in working in a community mental health setting using various therapeutic modalities. During my work, I have worked with individuals suffering with anxiety, depression, Bi-Polar, personality disorders and PTSD.

I meet with clients where they are at in life and what they would like to change.
Working in partnership with individuals to help identify their barriers, personal goals, strengths to create positive changes toward becoming their full self.

My style of therapy is compassionate, welcoming and supportive.

I look forward to working with you.

Melinda is very kind and understanding. She asks questions to get you to think of specific personal examples that may relate to topics we are discussing. I also enjoy the “homework” she provides and the additional information to look at throughout the week. Overall, I enjoy her as a therapist.
