To be human is to struggle. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am here to assist you on your journey to meaningful change; whether that entails emotional support during a difficult time in your life, navigating mental illness, communicating effectively with others, or simply ready to take your life in a new direction. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Human Services, a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and certified in the state of Idaho as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I place special significance on the therapeutic relationship by offering clinical feedback to support clients with reaching their desired goals. I recognize that no two individuals are the same, therefore I tailor counseling sessions to address your unique situation with respect and compassion.

I have prior experience in mental health counseling with stress, anxiety disorders, family and relational issues, and building motivation, self esteem, and confidence. While seeking help can be challenging, you're a step closer to your path of wellness and personal growth.

Melissa was a great person to talk to and she really help me work through a lot of different things that were going on in my life. she was very empathetic and trauma informed. I had to change therapists because I needed someone who had weekend availability.

MeLissa has been amazing. She really listens and provides so many options to help you work through what you’re dealing with. I had multiple things going on at the same time and she took them all and help me learn how to step back from my anxiety and gave me tools to handle it. She’s amazing.
