Melissa is currently enrolled in the Master of Science - Marriage and Family Therapy graduate program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout and will graduate in May of 2024. Having earned an undergraduate education in Human Development and Family Studies and Psychology, Melissa looks forward to bringing her experiences of working with adolescents within group home and other settings into her work as a therapist.
Melissa is passionate about people and values creating a safe and comforting environment in her work. She believes the therapist and client relationship begins with developing an authentic connection. Knowing that people have a need to be heard, Melissa strongly values being a listening ear for her clients. Overall, Melissa hopes to apply a systemic view and lens to the therapy room to offer her clients different approaches and perspectives to consider.
A few activities that Melissa enjoys include playing her guitar, listening to music, playing video games, cooking, baking, and engaging in outdoor activities. Melissa is also a huge believer that where there is good food, there is a good time!
