Melissa was very easy to talk to, relate to and she was understanding. She had good advise and tools as well.

She is so easy to talk to and gives me ideas of things that I can work on that are within my scope of comfort. I strongly feel like God had a huge part of allowing me to find her. She has definitely been a blessing to me.

My therapist never pushed my healing. Or forced things on my. She understands every one healing is as unique as a person's finger print.

I’ve been working with Melissa for over a year now. From the moment I met her, she has made me feel comfortable and made it easy to open up to her. She genuinely cares and it shows. Week after week, we have talked and she has helped me navigate through some tough times. She has a way of letting the conversation flow, while working her magic. I’ve had a lot of progress over the year, and couldn’t have done it without her!
