About Me

I have been a couselor for 20 years. I have experience counseling children, adults, family and the military. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, DBT, reality therapy and Solution Focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

So far Melody has been great and very insightful on keys ways to help me. I really appreciate her and glad we are able to connect virtually as daily life is pretty hectic. I always look forward to talking with her.
