Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
A calm and warm manner is always evident in Melodie’s therapy sessions with children, adolescents, and adults. She brings a depth of experience in working with children both in school and independent settings. Melodie’s preferred approach is play therapy with children who are oppositional, depressed, anxious, socially isolated, or not doing well academically. In her work with adolescents and adults, they are able to explore and learn to cope with difficult issues in their lives. With developing self-awareness and confidence, these individual are able to grow in a safe environment and experience more satisfying relationships.
