Melissa Potvin


About Me

Hello! My name is Melissa Potvin, and I have a Masters Degree in Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) here in the beautiful state of Michigan. My career in counseling has been over the course of the last 12 years and has been concentrated in the field of addictions and trauma. I have experience with multiple areas of addiction and multiple sources of trauma including PTSD and anxiety diagnoses. I have a secondary credential of Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC) from the state of Michigan.

My personal style in interacting with individuals is non-judgmental and non-confrontational. I will work with you on the goals you choose whether it is stopping an unwanted habit or behavior, starting a new relationship or a new career. I have helped a number of clients on a periodic basis through many years as they have needed the extra support at different times in their lives.

I will be as dedicated to this helping process as yourself, checking messages regularly and responding to you through this process. Reaching out to even investigate these options is a beginning start, and I commend you for taking these first steps.
