Over our many sessions together, Melinda has lifted me up and given me tools to deal with a major life change along with recurring anxieties and relationship challenges. She listens carefully and then offers applicable effective methods that enable me to better my view of myself which allows me to again become the strong loving human being I desire to be. Thank you!
