Melissa Gomsrund is very accommodating to the type of communication I prefer. She took time to learn what I need in our sessions and has offered me tremendous support and direction. She is easy to talk with and I always feel like it's her goal to serve me and keep me focused on achieving my goals. It's nice knowing she is in my corner and available when I need.

My counselor has already been a great help to me. We have set up goals and each week have milestones to reach to keep moving forward. I feel like my professional is tailored to my needs as well, she has similar life experiences and has insights that reach further than a typical clinical setting. I'm very pleased so far with my experience.

Melissa has helped me in so many ways. I'm dealing with more than I ever thought possible and I've never been so open and comfortable with talking about it. I'm overcoming problems I didn't even know existed. She's hands down the best therapist I've had in my whole life. She's constantly giving me ideas and the support I need.
