My Approach to Helping
~OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE~
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.

My Role as a Therapist
Melonie Gale views her role as a psychotherapist & Counselor as one in which there is a shared relationship built on trust. Trust depends upon your comfort level with your psychotherapist, the amount of expertise and understanding of the complexities of how feelings and issues can come together. With experience in many modalities over her career, she's able to create a view of your issues quickly and accurately. This allows you to work as a team together to decide what areas you'd like to change or overcome in your life.
