My Approach to Helping

My name is Melanie Shands and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I am a Registered Play Therapist and EMDRIA Certified EMDR Therapist. I work with youth and adults in Missouri to help them reach their goals and improve their mental health.

My approach to therapy is, first and foremost, client centered. After determining the goals and individual needs of the client, we will discuss the treatment modality that fits best. I use various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Play Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT, and Solution Focused Therapy.
