Have you ever wished you had someone that could listen and be supportive without being biased? That is my goal for each and every client I work with. We have all experienced times in our life where we needed someone to be there for us. My goal is to provide you with the tools to be the best possible you.
Being a Licensed professional counselor with over 7 years of experience I have had the pleasure of working with many populations. I have worked with clients with a wide range of topics including:
Early childhood developmental trauma
For the last several years I have worked in an adolescent treatment center with ages 13-19 . With a focus on attachment issues and healing trauma.
I understand how exhausting it is to care for teenagers in this world and have learned that it is even more exhausting to live as a teenager!
By utilizing a variety of psychotherapy styles such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and dyadic developmental psychotherapy balanced with acceptance and empathy the path to achieving your goals is within reach. I'm committed to creating a safe space for healing and believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.
Each persons needs are unique and specific and my goal is to provide clients with an authentic relatable experience.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Malinda Williams. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
My teen has been seeing Malinda for a year and a half and it has been very helpful. Malinda is kind, thoughtful, and very experienced in teen issues. Highly recommend.
Melinda, is attentive and responsive. Works on the issue at hand and focuses on providing the skills I need in my therapy for me to progress positively.
Great first session- Great Listener!!!
Malinda has been wonderful. Compassionate with sound advice. I highly recommend her.
She is my hour of calm in the storm, I have a really good connection with her and I feel she listens and understands me
I've been seeing Malinda for over a month and it's been a great experience. This is my first time in therapy so I wasn't sure what to expect, she had done a great job making me feel comfortable talking about difficult things and working through them. I'm looking forward to continue growing and healing as we continue to work together.
Malinda is literally a God-send. She is extremely personable, honest and easy to talk to. We share the same sense of humour so I feel as though I'm talking to a very good (and brilliant) friend. She has helped me navigate numerous life situations and I value our time together and her guidance.
Very respectful, kind, and understanding!
I could not be happier with Malinda and fact I had her as my therapist. She is wonderful! Initially I have joined teen counseling to help my anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Malinda always responded to my messages full of panic in quick manner and always offered support. During live session I have always felt safe, supported and listened to. She gave me homework to do which was amazing as it gave me sense of doing something "physical" to help my mental health and offered variety of sources to read and look through. Additionally she is incredibly respectful of me and my feelings and never pushes her own opinions. Instead she professionally and gently guided me through this journey to make my own conclusions and realisations! I also really appreciate her excellent sense of humour and sessions did not felt "stale, formal or intimidating" which made me look forward to them even more weekly. Being able to message her during my panic attacks helped me immensely! Not only she helped me to conquer my anxiety, depression and panic which I signed up for in the first place, but she guided me through my old deep traumas I suppressed for such a long time and that caused these anxiety and depression. I am a better person thanks to her not only mental health issues wise, but I feel more prepared to tackle future issues as they come, live my life, love myself and be kind to myself! Without a doubt if I will come back to this app or therapy, it will be Malinda!
Over the last few months I have made so much progress in boosting my self esteem and learning to better communicate with family and friends.
Melinda has helped me learn coping strategies that help in my daily life. I would highly recommend her.
Malinda is a wonderful therapist and I am incredibly thankful to have found her to guide me through this journey.
Malinda has helped me not just to know that I'll be OK, but to really believe it. I was reluctant to return to therapy after having had some questionable experiences with it. With Malinda, I never questioned going to therapy. She is organized and knows how to make the most of the teencounseling.com platform, so I always felt like I got what I needed out of each session, and more. Thank you, Malinda, for helping me through a tough time!
Malinda is the therapist that comes equipped with compassion and comfort. She makes me feel heard and understood even when I’m not listening nor understanding myself. I’m very grateful
After years of knowing I should be in therapy but not getting myself there, I finally have and I am so happy I was matched with Malinda! She is kind, encouraging, and incredibly supportive and I feel great about the way she is helping me sort myself out. I am learning so much!
Malinda is the absolute best! My fiancé and I have been seeing Malinda for 3 months now and she’s amazing! She’s truly made a huge difference in our relationship. She is everything I could ask for in a therapist. She listens to us and hears what we’re saying. She lets us speak and gives us excellent tools to deal with our issues. She’s super funny and relatable. I wish I could talk to her daily! I get so excited when it’s time for therapy! I’ve recommended her to multiple people with totally different issues. She’s the best! I can’t believe we found the perfect match all the way across the US. ❤️
Malinda is an excellent therapist. She is very knowledgeable, especially in working through trauma. She is also kind and provides a comfortable environment where I feel safe in sharing my experiences. The worksheets and homework she provides have been especially helpful for me.
From the “Old Soul”
I am so grateful I found Malinda. I’m glad she was the one that guided and supported me during my healing journey. I always felt heard and comfortable to be vulnerable and share the most personal details. I could never thank her enough. The person I am today, someone I’m proud of, wouldn’t have been a reality if it wasn’t for her. I wish her the best and that she continue to touch people’s lives the way she did with me.
My wife and I have been seeing Malinda for a little over a month now and have been so grateful for what a difference it has made in our relationship. Her expertise on relationships and the way she had guided communication about some difficult topics has been exactly what we needed and we are looking forward to the work that we will continue doing in our relationship with her guidance.
Malinda is a wonderful therapist. The feedback I would receive is kind and useful. I feel safe sharing knowing that I would be listen to. The worksheets that were sent to me are extremely helpful. She walks me through the though times with alot of support. I never felt alone during this journey. Thank you so much!
I have been working with Malinda for about a month now on issues related with anxiety and past trauma. I have noticed significant improvements from our sessions and the worksheets she sends! She is great and I look forward to our sessions each week!
Malinda is kind, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. She's not pushy and is a great listener.
