Philosophy of Counseling

Melody believes everyone has their own set of experiences, thoughts, and feelings (and maybe a few quirks); She strives to craft a cozy, client-centered space where folks feel as snug as a bug in a rug—heard, valued, and ready for some serious self-love.

Counseling is a tag-team effort. Melody tries to be all ears, actively listening and dishing out tailored feedback. What is the formula for great counseling?  Individualized care, collaboration, and a non-judgemental space. Are you ready to join her in the quest for positive change? Melody can help you achieve this.
