About Me

Hello! My name is Melissa Robles and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Louisiana. I’ve been practicing in the mental health field for the last 4 years. I’ve worked in a variety of settings including schools, short-term inpatient mental health hospitals, clinics and a district attorney’s office. Within these settings I’ve worked with clients in a wide range of concerns including trauma, sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, victims and witnesses of crime, parenting problems, career challenges, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and life transitions. I’ve facilitated groups and individual sessions as well.

My counseling style is warm and inviting. I believe that trust should be established, and the work will naturally flow through a safe environment. I also believe that LAUGHTER is truly therapeutic! I incorporate a holistic, multicultural and integrative approach to treatment. I combine multiple therapy techniques including but not limited to cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused, psychodynamic and solution-focused techniques. However, I meet the client where they are and tailor what is necessary to help in the achievement of accomplishing goals.

Let’s get started!

My first session was great. I already felt I took a step in channeling those big emotions. She gave me several ways to help me when I feel my emotions are getting the best of me, and she also checked up on me to make sure I was doing well.

Melissa has been a HUGE help to me and her style of counseling makes me feel sooo comfortable and supported. We always have at least one good laugh per call. She’s sweet and kind, but firm enough to give me the hard truth in a kind way when I need it.

Melissa has been easy to talk to from the first minute, and she has made me comfortable to open up, celebrate the small wins, and start confronting deeper challenges. So glad I was matched with her!
