Life is tough!!! Sometimes it feels that it won't get any easier or it won't get better.
And I get it!!!
Hello my name is Melissa, and I am a licensed professional counselor with over 8 years of mental health treatment and consultation experience. I use a variety of therapy models (the logical, direct kind - or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; the eclectic person centered model, or the motivating behavior and change through Motivational Interviewing), and I always use my client's interests and personality as the best guide for the approach.
That doesn't mean I follow a book, or manual!! Actually, I would say that my therapeutic approach will be dictated by what my client needs. I am here to help you on your journey towards becoming the better you, or a "you" that you want!! I am not going to tell you what you should do, but we can talk about what you did do ; ) .
I am a very open minded therapist, and I seek to provide culturally diverse therapy to a variety of individuals, and their lifestyles. I hope you will allow me to begin this journey with you!! I look forward to meeting you "where you are at"!!

Thank you Melissa for being there and listening to me. Thank you for your advice. I’ll be using those tools in daily life routine. I’ll be back
Melissa is amazing! She’s so down to earth and easy to talk to. She has been able to give me a few really solid methods to combat my anxiety and they actually work! She is also incredibly responsive! I highly recommend her.
She has been quite amazing and super helpful with everything. Whatever I am dealing with or issues that arise, she responds in a timely manner with exercises and advice on how to overcome and really deal with what I’m dealing with. Again, truly amazing!
Melissa is incredibly approachable. She’s helped me decipher my own thoughts by asking very good questions for clarification. Letting me know what she needed more information on and what clicked right away, so I don’t have to repeat myself, just dive further into certain aspects.
We’ve been able to connect on a level I wasn’t sure was possible from utilizing only the text based part of the service. Couldn’t be more pleased with the direction we’re headed in.
Very supportive and quick to respond!
