Hello, I am Melannie!
I'm a Master’s level licensed therapist with 2 years of experience providing counseling to clients in need.
I earned my Bachelors in Behavioral Healthcare from the University of South Florida and my Masters in Social Work from Louisiana State University. I've worked in many different clinical settings ever since. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through childhood trauma, anxiety, post-partum depression, recurrent depression, and many more. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you.
I am understanding, energetic, compassionate, and realistic. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
Look forward to meeting you!
