Understand, Heal & Grow
We Can Do This Together
Child, Adolescent & Adult Therapy
During child and adolescent counseling, our trained clinician works specifically with a child or adolescent member, and at times together with the parents and or guardians. We understand that these years of life can be a challenge for both the child as well as the parents. There are many stressors that children and adolescents face that can be helped through therapy. Child and adolescent counseling can help children, adolescents and families identify and work through these stressors in a caring and supportive environment. Both Melissa and J have extensive experience working with children and adolescents. J has worked in the school system, and Melissa has worked in the hospital setting in IOP, PHP, and residential. Both clinicians enjoy using the skills they have learned in different avenues to add to their creativity in helping children and adolescents through their struggles.
Family & Couples Therapy
Couples and Family Therapy to support, teach and help couples and families to work together to learn new communication and coping skills to create healthy family dynamics. Our experienced clinicians help families identify sources of conflict and provide families with strategies to resolve them. Couples therapy gives partners a chance to explore challenging relationship issues in a safe, non-judgmental environment. There are different types of couples counseling such as counseling for couples who want to strengthen their relationship, address intimacy issues, resolve conflicts regarding parenting, as well as premarital counseling.

(Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a technique used to help heal from emotionally disturbing events by getting the front and back burner of your brain to work together to heal trauma. It is a way to help heal from trauma in a non intrusive way that is respectful to the patient. It rewires your brain, so that it is desentized emotionally, and physically from triggers of the trauma. Melissa is a trained clinician of EMDR, and has seen the benefits over and over again of this therapy in many of her patients.
