About Me

My name is Melissa and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida. I received my Master's degree in Social Work from University of South Florida. I have extensive experience working with a wide range of individuals and problems, including substance abuse, depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, difficulty with life transitions, stress management, and grief. I also have professional and personal experience with military and law enforcement cultures.

I use a variety of evidence-based approaches. My approach is individualized and based on the needs of each person. I treat everyone with respect, dignity, and am nonjudgmental. I believe we all have the answers on how we can live our best life and therapy is a way for us to tap into those answers. I take a collaborative approach with your treatment, as you are the expert on your life.

I look forward to working with you!

Melissa has a great balance of focusing on practical solutions & making space to process your emotions as well. She is smart, realistic, and holds space for the shades of grey that exist in all of our lives. I love working with her!
