About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Indiana. I received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Purdue University and a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Christian Theological Seminary. I have had the opportunity to work in and gain knowledge from a diverse collection of settings that include elementary, middle and high school, hospital chaplaincy department, private practice and private agency working with families in the child welfare system. Each of these settings have provided me with hands on experience working with individuals and families in crisis, as well as those who are faced with navigating some of life’s challenges such as divorce, loss, and addiction.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I love a systems approach, understanding that we do not exist in a vacuum, but rather are part of larger systems. I take a non-judgmental, warm approach to therapy and I believe in tailoring my therapy towards my clients individual needs. Together we will establish goals and design a path towards a healthier way of being. I draw from a multitude of therapeutic techniques that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solutions Focused Therapy.

The first step towards seeking help is often the most difficult. I am excited that you are here and look forward to taking this journey along side you.

Melissa is the first therapist I've spent the time and money to get to know. She is very kind, as a cheerful voice and an energy that helps to make me comfortable talking with her. I highly recommend. Thank you, Melissa, for all your help.

I was a little skeptical at first of the video counseling format, but it's been great. Melissa gained an understanding of our issues very quickly and has made helpful suggestions to help us to try to process through them. She seems very intuitive and has been both supportive and direct with us. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

My teenager and I were having some troubles. We were both extremely frustrated with each other.Melissa helped us see things from the other's perspective and to clearly communicate what we needed from each other. Things have gotten much better.
