I believe validation is a key component when engaging in therapy. I can aid you in naming those thoughts/emotions you may struggle to name. My goal in the therapeutic relationship is to offer support as well as tools to highlight your strengths.
My name is Melissa Wallace and I am available to provide you with telehealth services that can address your mental health needs with a warm and supportive approach to psychotherapy. I came into this field because I have a passion to assist, guide and partner with individuals to be the best verison of themselves in their current season of life.
I am a licensed Master Social Worker. I received my Master's degree from Fordham University and a Bachelor's degree from Dominican College, both in Social Work. I work with adults and young adults utilizing specialty approaches such as: cognitive behavioral therapy, strengths based, motivational interviewing and humanistic therapy. I also offer Christian counseling for those that choose to incoporate their spiritual beliefs.
If this sounds like something you want to explore, great! I'm so looking forward to hearing from you!
