My Approach to Helping

Melonie, and her little dog Annie, believe counseling is a personalized & collaborative relationship within a safe and supportive environment that is designed for you as an individual. Your decision to seek counseling and choosing the right counselor for you is as important to your healing as your motivation to change. She works interactively with you to define treatment goals based on your specific needs. Counseling may be brief or in-depth. Within each of us she believes there is an innate ability & power to heal and she will work together with you towards your goals.

Counseling as a Choice.
Melonie Gale has been working with clients to help better their lives for decades. Her experience is in a multitude of differing areas giving me clarity to focus on the underlying issues presenting road blocks to wellness. By focusing on recognition of your choices and strengths & identifing patterns that aren't working for you, her experience & expertise can help provide you with new insights and tools.
