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!

Instant connection. She didn’t sugar coat anything with our first meeting/introduction. She lets me just go on and get everything off my chest and I don’t feel judged.

Melissa has been such an invaluable help during such a stressful time. I have made SO much progress in an amazing short time on handling my anxiety better, loving my relationships more, and just feeling so much more love for myself and others. Thank you Melissa for your AMAZING work and skills and listening ear! ❤

Melissa has been instrumental in me taking back control of my life, helping me recognize why I do the things I do (and what triggers them for me), and helps provide creative suggestions for solutions. She’s non-judgmental and I couldn’t recommend her more.
