Melissa has been amazing in helping me. I came into this not thinking I would be able to be helped and somehow Melissa has done that for me. My life has been made better and easier thanks to Melissa.

Melissa Dye is an amazing therapist that meets the client where he or she is. She is compassionate, listens attentively , embraces the obstacles of her client and assists in guiding the client through constructive thought processes and interventions. I highly recommend Melissa Dye for counseling for anyone regardless of the issues or topics they are facing. She is well trained, compassionate and helpful in allowing the client to move forward with life in a positive direction.

I’ve had one session so far with Mrs. Dye and it was honestly such a great session. I’m fairly new to therapy and she made me feel super comfortable and it was very easy to open up. The conversation we had was very comforting and I definitely look forward to doing more sessions with her!

Written by L.A. on Feb 09, 2021 after counseling with Melissa for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Only two sessions in but wish I could speak with her every day! Remarkable in how she understands what I’m saying but can bring so much clarity to my chaos. Wonderful experience so far and I am keen on exploring aspects of myself and my relationship further.
