Hello! My name is Melinda but I go by Mindy and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Ohio and Kentucky with over 20 years experience working in the mental health field in some capacity, including therapy since 2006. I have worked in a variety of settings including in-home, schools, private practice, and community mental health facilities assisting individuals overcome and deal with life's challenges. I like to meet my clients where they are, create goals, and work toward achieving those goals through us establishing a therapeutic relationship. My approach includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered and Solution Focused modalities but can be eclectic based on your needs. I enjoy empowering my clients to work towards change and how challenges can be an opportunity for change and/or growth. I provide a safe, non judgmental environment for my clients to express emotions and deal with life's challenges. I believe that humor in therapy, from time to time, can alleviate stress and provide a sense of normalcy.
My scope of practice includes general mental health issues ( anxiety, depression, etc) relationship issues, life transitions, work/life balance, career, grief, anger management and more.
Thanks for reading my profile. This is the first step. Together we can explore your emotions, challenges, and strengths to assist you with living a long happy life!
