About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama with over 20 years of experience. I've always had a desire to help people even as a little girl. My motto in life is "How can I help?" I have worked with individuals with a wide range of concerns including substance abuse, anger issues, anxiety, depression, and physical/psychological trauma. For the past few years, I have worked with couples and individuals to address parenting/co-parenting problems, relationship issues, and intimate partner violence. Through the counseling process, clients gain a better sense of what a healthy relationship is versus what it is not.

My therapy style is direct and interactive. I believe in building rapport in order to establish the therapeutic alliance within the first few weeks of therapy. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and genuineness. I prefer a variety of approaches to treatment such as cognitive-behavior therapy, solution focused therapy, and person-centered treatment just to mention a few. However, the approach selected will meet the individual exactly where they are. Treatment plans' goals and objectives are formulated based on the individual’s strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences.

It takes strength and courage to invest in a more fulfilling and happier life. Thinking for a change will assist in gaining a new perspective and outlook. So if you are ready to take that step, then I ask,

"How can I help?"

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melanie Walton. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

So far our experience in couples therapy has been good. Ms.Melanie has been helpful in working with our complex schedules. She has been helpful in giving us skills to communicate better.

Melanie is awesome. She has expertise in working with the most difficult cases, and handling the healing work with her clients with great aplomb and skill. Therapy has helped provide me with hope about the future even when things in the situation at times seemed bleak.

Melanie is extremely understanding and pays attention to every little detail of a conversation. Melanie is also very honest and while listening to whatever problems you may be having, she won’t tell you lies about everything being changed overnight but that if you work on yourself and things you’re capable of fixing, then you will be that much closer to fixing your problem!

My partner and I have been working with Melanie Watson on Regain for the past six months and I can honestly say that she has been a great help to us. She is very patient, compassionate, and insightful. She always responds to my messages in a timely manner and guides us with useful exercises. She has helped us shed light on difficult issues in our relationship and I feel more confident and optimistic thanks to her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for online therapy.

Melanie has been so supportive of us during our couple therapy. We’ve felt that she always makes an honest effort to get to know us as people, learn about our life, and know us as a couple. We’re always appreciative of her insight and the way she makes us address things head on.
