Melissa Nadler

About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who uses several therapeutic styles including cognitive/behavioral and reality therapies. My strengths include empathy, compassion, humor, and sensitivity to any issue that is brought to the "couch." My job is to help you help you and in doing so I am along for the ride and journey of self-discovery, healing, and growth.

I work with a varied clientele covering many different issues and feel that my approach is both inviting and invigorating in terms of allowing clients the opportunity to find a healthy path that was designed especially by them for them. I have experience with many different clientele and therapeutic settings including private practice, community agency, legal system, and college counseling center.

I have worked in the prison/court systems, private practice, and college counseling center, and feel that I have the perspective that is necessary and desired for a successful therapeutic relationship. I am involved in the Veterinary Community of Central Florida as a consultant, therapist, and wife of a local veterinarian.

I have a Bachelor of Science majoring in psychology. I also have both a Masters and Specialist Degree in Education with a focus in Mental Health Counseling. All three of these degrees are from the University of Florida. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida and am in private practice.

Melissa has been great so far. Just being able to voice concerns has been a huge help to me. She has offered real advice to my issues. I feel comfortable talking about uncomfortable issues with Melissa. She is non judgmental and patient.

I have been completely helped by Melissa and I can see the progress I have achieved from the time I first started consulting with her up to now with out a doubt. Thanks Melissa!

Melissa Nadler is the counselor I've always needed. She's personable, prompt, and very intuitive. Each time I get a message from Melissa I end up crying a bit, either because the question she asks are touching and helps me see a part of myself that we can work on, or out of gratitude, as she will send messages when she hasn't heard from you to make sure you're okay. I'm very grateful to have Melissa as a counselor and I have recommended BetterHelp to several people based on my experiences with her.

Melissa communicates clearly and directly and is able to form relationships that are meaningful. I appreciate Melissa's honest approach to therapy and meeting clients where they're at in their therapeutic process. Melissa provides a safe space to comfortably share thoughts and asks relevant, challenging questions.
