My name is Dr. Melissa Arnott. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in several states, a Licensed Addictions Counselor, and a Nationally Certified Counselor with over 18 years of experience. I am ready to help you!
I view counseling as a collaborative process by which I help clients explore, clarify, and identify their needs. I help them to make changes in cognitions and behaviors that will result in the attainment of life satisfaction and self-acceptance.
I operate from an Existential/Person-Centered philosophy that emphasizes meaning in one’s life, responsibility, and the pursuit to be “that self which one truly is” (Soren Kierkegaard).
As a dedicated, culturally responsive educator and professional counselor with a broad knowledge of therapeutic approaches, I offer a myriad of effective services to individuals at all stages of life. These services include both Counseling and Coaching.
Counseling services include individual, family, & group counseling from childhood to late adulthood.
Coaching services include education and employment coaching, executive coaching, ADD & learning disability coaching, and life coaching.

Appreciate Dr. Arnott's knowledge and insight
She’s the best ! Attentive and understanding, with quality advice and support .
I’ve been working with Dr.Arnott for a few weeks now and it has made all the difference in my journey for self acceptance and improvement. Her positivity and energized approach to helping you is contagious. After my first visit I felt so motivated and hopeful something I hadn’t felt in a long time even with other counselors. She has helped me view my “problems” as things that are easily manageable without dismissing the pain I’ve felt from them.
I have only met with Dr. Arnott one time so far, but she was very easy to talk to and very supportive. During our session, Dr. Arnott suggested some strategies which I put to use, and they were very helpful.
She listens to what you say and then she comes up with ideas to help she also is very compassioned about your situation and she makes me feel comfortable to talk to her and if there's a day I am having rough day grieving the loss of my wife You can text her and she will responds in reasonable amount of time.
Dr. Arnott is of fine expertise. She takes the time to listen and is always ready to give feedback when necessary. My feeling is she goes above and beyond to make sure you understands things, have proper info etc. And always cares about my well being.
Dr. Arnott is kind, caring and not only talks with me she takes time when we are not in session to send me others ways to work through my issues via text. She is great!
I appreciate the way Melissa listens deeply and responds authentically from her expertise and experience. She shares of herself in a way that strengthens the sense of partnership between us.
Dr. Arnott is a very compassionate and supportive therapist. I appreciate her honesty and kindness. She is a great listener and I would highly recommend her.
After only a couple of weeks, working with Dr Arnott is already noticeable. She is a kind professional with a wealth of experience who knows how to listen and treats her patients in a holistic manner, never judging or showing bias. She is easily reachable via messaging and the video sessions are pleasant and engaging, she is flexible to discuss whatever is on my mind the most and offers great insight and advice. I'd recommend her services with confidence, she is a wonderful counselor!
