My name is Melanie and I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor in the State of Maryland and a National Certified Counselor. I have experience working with justice-involved populations, children, adolescents, teens, and adults through individual, couple, and family counseling. My areas of interest include anxiety, anger management, depression, trauma, attachment styles, co-dependency, and more.
I consider myself to be a healer who assists my clients in finding mental, emotional, and spiritual balance through a variety of therapeutic interventions and approaches and encourage healing in whatever form suits you best in the moment. This may look like traditional talk therapy, meditation, dance, yoga, prayer, Reiki, sleep, a hot bath, exercise, and so much more.
I hold a B.A in Psychology from Texas Southern University, a M.A in Forensic and Legal Psychology from Marymount University, and a M.A in Mental Health Counseling from Bowie State University. I also hold a Level 1 Jiivana Yoga Teacher Training Certificate from Spiritual Essence Yoga & Wellness Center and am a Usui Reiki II Practitioner.
