About Me

Life consists of changes. Change equals stress, whether it is good stress (EUstress) such as a wedding, graduation or other positive life situation. Then there is (DIStress), the negative situations we identify when we think of stress. These situations typically lead to increased anxiety, depression, or any other overwhelming feelings. I am here to be your sounding board, compass, or oar to help you navigate this river that is life. I am eager to help you on this journey to positive life changes.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Texas with almost 20 years of experience working as a counselor in a variety of arenas. I offer a wide range of services including but not limited to anxiety; depression; stress management; bipolar disorder; legal issues; personality disorders; chronic pain; substance abuse; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; chronic illness, etc.... I have worked with children 10 years of age through geriatric years.

With me you will find a warm, non-judgmental, empathetic environment that helps encourage healing, and hope. I believe that counseling is a collaborative process where we work together to develop a plan focusing on your needs to help you work towards and achieve your goals. I believe in treating anyone with the dignity and respect regardless of their past or present circumstances. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels because your diagnosis/problem does not define you. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

You have shown a lot of courage and strength by completing the first step, which is to ask for help. This step is often the hardest. It would be a great honor to walk beside you in this discovery of healing, balance, peace, and change. I am here and eager to take the next step with you towards freedom and contentment!


I look forward to working with you!

Great program,
They offer many different types of consoling, the therapist always responds with a timely manner, and it is easy to use, and very very great platform

I trust Melody. She never makes me feel bad about myself when I cancel or accidentally miss an appointment. I feel that I can be honest with her. She is also consistent with the techniques I am trying to learn and practice.

Love love love Melody. She is so real and honest. I don’t feel like I’m talking to a robot therapist and she actually pays attention to me. Couldn’t recommend her more!!

I have not had the opportunity to schedule an appointment because of my work schedule. Miss Melody has reached Out to me numerous times to see how I’m doing, and trying to set up an appointment. I appreciate her

I absolutely loveeeeee Melody. I feel completely safe and connected with my therapist. I feel so comfortable which is amazing because I have had a hard time trusting anyone especially with my feelings. I look forward to my therapy sessions. I love our video calls, she makes my day every time we speak. I know I said this already but I feel so connected with her, I never want to lose her. I look forward to seeing her again!

Melody ROCKS. She's good at helping me get out of my shell and address issues that I have trouble dealing with. She gives me good advice, and has helped me out by sharing worksheets that I filled out and helped me reflect on positive things about myself.

Melody is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever known in my life. She also has an incredible insight. She understands just when I need her support and just when I need her pushing me by asking questions that make me uncomfortable.

I think she is helping me a great deal, she’s noticed things I had hoped she would notice about me and I’m glad that I was matched with her.

Melody is a godsend. She has been the one therapist I have actually been comfortable with and I want to thank her for helping me to see that it's okay to have bad/down days as long as we don't let them keep us down.
See I'm learning. ❤
