I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been a practicing clinician for 4 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, familial issues, and ADHD. During my time as a clinician, I have worked 2 years with couples and family units struggling to communicate with each other.
I believe in taking a personal approach and building a strong relationship with couples in order to assist them through the storm. I utilize a cognitive behavioral, humanistic and strengths based counseling approach. Each therapeutic approach is personalized to the couples needs and wants during the therapeutic process.
It takes strength to get help when needed. The first step is always the most difficult. If you are ready to to take that leap, I am here to help and empower you.
I look forward to working with you.

Melissa is wonderful. We have had the opportunity to work with her for a short few months as a couple, but already her guidance and expertise has helped us to better understand ourselves as well as each other. It has given us a new hope that through continued hard work with Melissa we can correct the bad behaviors and habits that have become engrained in our relationship. If you are both willing to give it your all and be honest with yourselves and each other; you can make a positive difference in your life!
Melissa listens to everything we need to say before responding, making her response most valuable. She also acts as somewhat of a translator between me and my spouse to help us get on the same page. Though we have not worked through everything yet, I am confident that Melissa will help us get there.
Melissa has been very helpful. My wife and I are communicating better thanks to our sessions. Thank you.
