Melissa Pagarigan

(LCSW)

About Me

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 great. She listens to issues to understand the problems and really focuses on solutions. She guides conversation well and never makes us feel awkward or uncomfortable.
