About Me

Hi, my name is Melissa Smith.

I love helping people discover what does not work in their life, help them set goals, and empower them to achieve those goals. My counseling style is empathetic, genuine, nonjudgmental, straight forward, and interactional. I provide feedback to help you grow.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and I am certified to provide online counseling. I have a Masters of Science in Counseling from Campbellsville University.

I work with clients that suffer from emotional abuse, physical abuse, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, OCD, trauma, PTSD, burnout, and compassion fatigue.

The counseling approaches I use the most are Solution-Focused therapy, Intergenerational therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy.
I can help!

I really appreciate Melissa. She’s knowledgeable, helpful, and a very good counselor. I have 3 kids, ranging in ages from 11 to 8 months. I love that I have different options for my sessions because my schedule is so hectic. She’s also very quick to respond and it always very engaged.

Working with Melissa makes me feel like progress really is possible. She compassionately challenged me to keep going deeper into why I was experiencing so much anxiety and we were able to work together on unpacking the root causes of my issues. Melissa is thoughtful, responsive, and competent and I'm so thankful that I get to be in therapy with her.
