“I find it a privilege to become a part of people’s lives, to hear their stories, and learn the roots of their pain. Whether I am working with a child, teenager, an adult, a couple, or parents, it is about relationship building. As we build a trusting therapeutic relationship, I would like us to work together to identify ways to bring forth your heart healing and change.“
Before coming to Meier Clinics, Melissa worked with children, teens, families, and adults within the home, school, and outpatient therapy settings. These individuals were from different ethnic, social, economic, and cultural backgrounds. When working with children, age-appropriate activities are implemented such as games, arts and crafts, books, and other child-friendly interventions. Parent/caregiver involvement is highly encouraged, for they add value and support to their young one’s treatment.
Melissa has a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology specializing in Child and & Adolescent Therapy. She is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the states of Pennsylvania and Texas.
For pleasure, Melissa enjoys spending time with her family, making them a priority second to God. She also has fun getting together with friends, attending bible study, serving within the community, and traveling.
