Welcome! I am Mellisa, a Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my Masters in Counseling at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. I have spent the past eight years working in an inpatient crisis stabilization setting.
The mission of my therapeutic approach is to empower you. For healthy change to occur a healthy space that provides compassion, honesty and listening is essential. I listen well, and without judgment, but I do give practical support and clearly communicate with you what I am observing in our time together. I believe that no matter how overwhelmed you feel there are opportunities for health and growth, and there are very concrete techniques to help you better navigate this time of change.
I specialize in emotional regulation to help manage difficult situations, general stress and anxiety, depression . I provide therapy from a cognitive behavioral approach, with a focus on experiential techniques to help calm an overworked stress-response system. Above all, my focus is on my client in the emotional space they are in, so I adjust the pace or style of therapy based on the need of the individual. The work I do is collaborative and strength based. I operate under the assumption that your time slot is yours, and all paths taken are meant to lead toward a future that brings you hope and growth.
Whether you are looking for long-term therapy to sort out past hurts, or short-term therapy to see your way out of a difficult situation I look forward to supporting you in reaching your goals.

- Trauma and abuse

Mellisa makes me feel so relaxed and safe to share what’s bothering me. She communicates well about her schedule changes and has good appointment times.
Mellisa is a great counsellor. She hears what I am saying and doesn't correct me or say that I should say something in a different manner. She lets me feel. She lets me be me without judgement. That kind of trust is so important to me when seeking help.
Mellisa Wright is very attentive and has offered some great techniques to combat anxiety and stress.
