Hi, my name is Melissa.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee specializing in helping individuals navigate anxiety, stress, depression, grief/loss and life transitions. I provide individual therapy sessions online. I take a holistic approach to therapy using traditional psychotherapy techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
In 2001 I completed a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work (MSW) from Florida State University. I received my Florida license in Social Work (LCSW) in 2004 and have since added additional licenses in Tennessee and Georgia. I have worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, Hospice programs, schools and as an independent contractor providing tele-mental health counseling services to individuals who are experiencing varying levels of challenges due to chronic medical conditions, life situations and/or mental health concerns.
I enjoy helping people work through the challenges of today's world as we take the journey together to get you to where you want to be in your life.
