Melissa is a great listener. Has a way to help me understand things that come difficult to me. She takes away the awkwardness and makes you feel like your talking to a friend. I’ve really learned so much and always look forward to her perspective to align with my goals.

Melissa is a well rounded and proactive counselor. She is easy to talk to and understanding of my diverse family background. She has prayed with me, and helped me navigate through my current needs.
