My name is Melissa. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 4 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, low self-esteem, and confidence issues. Also, I have helped individuals with trauma and abuse find healing. The modalities that I incorporate include Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, and Trust-Based Relational Intervention. It is important to meet you at your place of need and to tailor our time to address your unique concerns and specific needs.
I practice from a perspective of compassion, acceptance, and love. I believe it takes courage to journey through the counseling process and I recognize that change is neither easy nor painless. It is my hope that my clients feel safe, secure, and open as we begin to work together.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melissa Dugas. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Melissa is wonderful and truly an answer to prayer.
Melissa is a great listener and always provides great communication and has a lot of insightful things to say. I always feel so much better after I get to speak with her.
I prob would give 10s all the way across the board but I haven’t had enough time to work with her yet. She is very responsive and understanding though and I’m sure I will continue working with her. I have no complaints at all.
Melissa is great. She is easy to talk to and express my feelings
I've met with a few therapists before meeting Melissa and I'm glad I stuck it through. I feel truly heard and encouraged by her. I like that she checks in throughout the week and send me worksheets based on what we discussed.
Melissa is amazing! I was skeptical of online therapy but my experience with her has changed my perspective. Very insightful and kind . Helped support me through some difficult times.
Melissa has been really wonderful so far. Though we’ve only been talking for a few weeks, I already feel connected to her and comfortable. I really appreciate how she weaves our shared Christian faith so respectfully and beautifully into the ways she engages with me, so if you’re looking for a faith-based experience, she is absolutely the way to go.
I have only had a couple of sessions with Melissa but at first blush, I can confirm that this is the right person and the right channel for me. As a busy working mother, sometimes in person sessions can take too much effort to schedule. Melissa and I have only had a couple of sessions but I feel heard, supported, and am optimistic about the future and finding ways to navigate the emotions and challenges I'm facing.
