Melissa Travers

(Licensed, Professional, Counselor)

About Me

Thank you for seeking counseling via betterhelp. I am Melissa Travers, a Licensed Professional Counselor living in Georgia. I have 22 years of experience in the mental health field and have worked in a variety of settings including school counseling, grief counseling, military member/family counseling, crisis counseling, addictions counseling, and children and adolescents counseling. I specialize primarily in those seeking help for relationship, grief, depression, and anxiety issues. For couples counseling, I believe any relationship can be restored and thriving if both partners are committed to this goal. Each individual I serve presents unique concerns and goals, and I work to individualize my approach to best suit those needs.

I would describe my approach as empathetic, goal oriented, and client centered. I enjoy helping people through challenging situations. I provide a warm and non-judgmental environment, allowing us to better work together to reach your goals. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Motivational interviewing to help my clients set goals and objectives, work through their traumas, and feel empowered once they have met their goals. I encourage complete honesty and work hard to create a trusting client-counselor relationship.

Everyone deserves to have someone to easily talk to; let me be that person for you. I look forward to working with you and guiding you in meeting your therapeutic goals.

Melissa is wonderful at being a calm presence, recognizing blind areas for me, and her demeaner is sweet and helpful. She is very intelligent and resourceful. I appreciate her style of talk therapy and would definitely recommend.
