Hi my name is Melissa and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who believes that to have a successful outcome in therapy, the client and therapist must first build a strong rapport. I pride myself in offering sincere compassionate counseling services that are client centered. I am trained and will use one of several therapeutic modalities, depending on the issue at hand. These modalities may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Solution Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy. An Integrated approach may be utilized as well.
I am often told that I am caring, sensitive, energetic and a good listener. I have wanted to be a therapist for as long as I can remember and I am so happy to have the privilege of getting to know you and be part of your life journey.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melissa Harris. 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.
She is extremely helpful in helping me sort thru my feelings.
Melissa is great! She listens super well, but is also very vocal and forward with solutions.
I think Melissa is great! I trust her.
Melissa is incredibly warm, friendly and supportive. I love the questions she asks that help me move forward! She's very down to earth and has a great sense of humor, and I've really appreciated the ability to show up as myself without judgment. I also really appreciate being able to text with her between meetings when I'm dealing with something difficult. There were a few weeks where I really needed almost daily help and that's what sold me on this platform in general. While it's much more expensive than my co-pay, the ability to have a therapist text with me in real time when I'm having a significant issue is incredibly valuable. Waiting for a once a week visit just doesn't cut it in a time of high emotional need. I'm very grateful to Melissa for helping me through the past few months!
Melissa has been a great help to me. She has such a positive and constructive manner and is really easy to talk to. She has helped me uncover insights but also consider practical solutions that can ease emotional woes. Hope to work with her again!
So far she has been everything I need. She listens, pushes but recognizes my responses and adjusts to help me grow. I have been through many counselors over the years, but she and this process have been the most hopeful so far.
Melissa has truly been a gift to me. She’s understanding, helpful, easy to talk to! You are very lucky to have her on staff!
Melissa is a fantastic counselor. I worked with her on a variety of issues including family problems and sexual trauma. She is a very good listener and believes in shaping her counseling style based on your personality by establishing a good personal report first. And then applying concrete goal settings and tracking those goals for my issues. Highly recommended especially for first time Better help customers who are older (I am 50) that have never had therapy before.
Melissa is absolutely amazing and very realistic in her approach to my wellness. Highly recommend her!!
Melissa Harris is probably the best experience I’ve had in therapy in a long time. Very understanding and flexible about my needs.
I thank God for her. She gets me and understands me and I’m grateful for her!
