Are you struggling with beliefs and attitudes that are preventing you from being able to move forward in a productive way and live a better life? I believe that everyone can grow and learn to be a better version of themselves, and I would love to partner with you through this walk. By dealing with unhelpful beliefs and recognizing the choices we make affect the attitudes that shape our lives, each person can start to develop a more positive belief about themselves. I have worked with teenagers and adults who have experienced trauma and are trying to learn to deal with the reality of their experiences. I also have experience working with grief, anxiety, depression, dissociative disorders, relationship issues, life transitions, divorce, and couples counseling.

Melissa offers clients a deep understanding of many life struggles and issues. For many years, Melissa worked in marketing and insurance. During her time in business, she developed skills in collaboration, communication, and social development. After raising two children, Melissa realized she wanted to employ all the skills she had learned from both corporate life and family life to help others maneuver through complicated life experiences.

Melissa's primary therapeutic styles are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). She is also trained in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Prepare Enrich for couples.
