Hi! My name is Melissa Clem. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 7+ years of experience working with adults and children in Community Mental Health and as a Designated Crisis Responder (DCR). I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a Master’s of Science in Professional Counseling. I am a certified clinical specialist in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) that specifically helps people diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or individuals that need help dealing with trauma from their past. I have worked in several settings including a nonprofit agency, jail and juvenile hall, with law enforcement out in the community in crisis situations, hospital emergency rooms, and in a hospital detainment unit.
My desire is to help you achieve your goals and overcome obstacles that prevent you from becoming the person you desire to be. I offer individualized treatment in a safe compassionate environment where you will be able to explore your hopes and dreams and make a plan to reach your goals to become the person you are meant to be.
Spirituality is a huge part of healing. I believe we are created in the image of God and He wants you to understand the depth of His love for you. I invite you to talk openly and freely about your spiritual beliefs and ask for prayer at any time.
Thank you for choosing me as your therapist. I look forward to working with you!
