(LCSW)

About Me

Hi there! My name is Melissa. I am a licensed counselor in New Mexico with over 6 years of experience working primarily as a Multisystemic Therapist. In doing Multisystemic Therapy, I worked with teens and their families performing the highest level of outpatient therapy and was the lead clinician in outpatient settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, domestic violence, and behavioral problems including physical and verbal aggression, substance use, runaway problems, attachment problems, self harm, and oppositional behavior.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe each client is the expert in their own life and I seek to assist clients in finding the best solutions for their concerns. I am straight forward and believe change can be scary and difficult and I am here to confront the issues contributing to the difficulties you are facing. My approach primarily combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, solution focused, and behavioral modification counseling. I believe each client and each situation is unique and therefore I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am so proud of you for taking this step to enrich and empower yourself to meet your goals in life. I genuinely hope I can help you along this path to success and I believe you can accomplish anything you set your mind to doing.

Melissa has been extremely helpful to me. I hope that she feels like I've been a good patient, but she has been completely wonderful for me over these past months.

Very caring and understanding. Her tone and mannerisms in which she speaks really help me to be able to express myself.

Melissa understands and focuses on areas that you may need help in a methodological way. In addition, the tools she has given me are relevant and speak to the success that I have achieved.

Melissa had been very good and supportive for me. From the beginning I felt comfortable talking with her and opening up. She has helped me with my anger issues and coming up with solutions. She lets me know that she cares about my feelings and it feels really nice to hear it. I see the improvements in my thinking and my outlook and I have Melissa to thank for that.

100% Recommend. Melissa Harman is a fantastic listener. She is really adaptable, knowledgeable, professional, and strategic to find what works best. I personally love that she has helped me to set goals within our sessions, and that has really worked for me, and is perfect for my personality. Melissa the warmest personality that is even conveyed over messaging. She is wonderful and I am so glad that she is my counselor.
