My Approach to Helping

My name is Melissa and I am a licensed counselor in New Mexico with over 6 years of experience working primarily as a Multisystemic Therapist. In doing Multisystemic Therapy, I worked with teens and their families performing the highest level of outpatient therapy and was the lead clinician in outpatient settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, domestic violence, and behavioral problems including physical and verbal aggression, substance use, runaway problems, attachment problems, self-harm, and oppositional behavior.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe each client is the expert in their own life and I seek to assist clients in finding the best solutions for their concerns. I am straightforward and believe change can be scary and difficult and I am here to confront the issues contributing to the difficulties you are facing. My approach primarily combines cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, solution focused, and behavioral modification counseling. I believe each client and each situation is unique and therefore I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am so proud of you for taking this step to enrich and empower yourself to meet your goals in life. I genuinely hope I can help you along this path to success and I believe you can accomplish anything you set your mind to doing.
