I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arkansas with 16 years of counseling experience. I work with individuals and couples facing issues with depression, anxiety, communication, infidelity, parenting issues, addictions and OCD. My approach to counseling is from a cognitive-behavioral framework to help empower the client towards change. The loss and hardships that I have faced in my own life have helped me to be empathic with my clients. If you are ready to make changes in your life and relationships I am here to help you take that step.

Melissa has so far been very kind and listens and offers ideas and opinions that help me reach my own conclusions. My feelings never feel invalidated and I never feel judged. She's very patient.
