For 18 years, I have provided solution-focused career counseling for adult professionals and traditional college students. Now with four years of licensed professional counseling experience, I use practical, evidence-based tools to help clients do the courageous work of therapy. My strengths-based, solution-focused approach to counseling means that I believe that you have untapped, forgotten, or underdeveloped resources. I believe that can help you reach your mental health and wellness goals with your own strengths. I believe that I can help affirm your strengths and guide you toward solutions.
I offer a safe space to do the courageous work of personal growth. Using a non judgmental approach and evidence-based practices, I hope to support, encourage, educate, and empower you. I'll walk with you to help strengthen awareness and increase personal and professional growth.

LPC #010987 (Expires: 2022-09-30)
She is a very good therapist
She is great! Very compassionate, very understanding, sincere and hopeful! The experience is great! I would recommend her to anyone
In just 3 appointments, Melissa has really cracked open my world and allowed me to see things differently. Now I recognize the opportunities I have and also my blindspots. She has such a soothing voice and way of understanding me without judgment. It is a gift to have her as my therapist and I can say with certainty that she is well worth the investment.
I’ve enjoyed my sessions with Melissa and have found them to be helpful so far.
Super knowledgeable, supportive, and non judgmental.
Melissa is great! She listens to me and is helpful without being pushy. So happy finally, after searching many years, to find a therapist who’s right for me.
Melissa has been a tremendous help from the gecko. She’s patient, sincere, thoughtful, and overall a pleasure to talk to. She’s helped me understand ways I can grow my mindfulness and how to cope with stressful/anxious situations. She has been really really reassuring and supportive in new my journey during these strange new times. After every session I’ve felt more positive and more at ease. But thanks to her advice and guidance, I am able to take what I learned and manage my stress/anxiety on my own!
My daughter is going through some things I have already recommended better hralth
Very kind and compassionate!
Melissa is exactly the counselor I needed and I’m so excited to continue our work together!
Melissa worked with me to build upon my strengths. She meets you where you are and brings empowerment to your existing capabilities. She provides tools that challenge you while considering your needs, and I feel like I am better equipped to navigate the tensions in my life.
Melissa has been incredibly helpful during our sessions and has given me great insight in how to work towards my goals.
Melissa offers a variety of exercises/tips on how to approach an issue that you have. These help you work out and organize your thoughts. She also provides tips that I have never thought of before. She's a great person to talk to about some then come up with adequate solutions or coping skills!
