Melissa is a laid back co-occurring disorders therapist under supervision. She is authentic in her approach to mental health and understands that we’re all just trying our best. Trauma and anxiety in older adolescents and adults is among her developing passions. Prior to Ellie, her clinical training was in co-occurring addictions treatment in both residential and outpatient settings.
Melissa seeks to meet her clients at their level and work together as a team. She is a firm believer in the power of personal perception and intention. Her strengths are in CBT and narrative modalities with motivation to find what works best for you.
She brings attitude, creativity, and humor to therapy and brings warmth and welcome to her clients with her genuine personality. Her goal is to make getting help an option for everyone. Bring on the cuss words, memes, tiktoks, or whatever fits your situation because sometimes our words just aren’t enough.
When not at work, you can find Melissa with her nose in a book or hunting her next spooky, scary fix! She is an avid plant lady with a green thumb, huge animal lover and paints whatever and whenever she can.
