Melissa Gray, LPC

Philosophy of Care

I am an experienced, licensed therapist with competence in a variety of settings and with various mental health concerns; including, bipolar disorder, anxiety, Autism, depression, anger management, ADHD, and traumatic experience, just to name a few. I enjoy working with and am very knowledgeable in all age groups, from young children to adults. My goal as a therapist is to work alongside you, assisting you in finding meaningful solutions to the obstacles life may throw your way.

I see each individual as unique, different and diverse; therefore, I take an eclectic approach to the therapeutic process, to enhance healing and wellness in each individual. Asking for help can be difficult and is often perceived as a weakness, when actually asking for help takes incredible strength and humility.

Life is full of challenges, hardships and stressors that can make even the most resilient person feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious or even lost. My hope is that we can work together in order to find your path to personal growth and inner peace

Philosophy of Care

Andrea is a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in trauma with children and teens, behavior issues with children and teens, parenting, attachment, and mood disorders. She completed both her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling degrees from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. During her graduate studies, Andrea received specialized training with children using Play Therapy as a means to heal. Play is a child’s natural language, therefore, using play in a safe setting helps children express themselves completely. Andrea has extensive training and experience working with children and teens (ages 3-17) that have experienced trauma, and she is certified by the state of Michigan to use Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). TF-CBT is a type of therapy that teaches children and parents/guardians about trauma, how to effectively use relaxation skills, how to connect feelings to trauma, as well as how to change unhelpful thoughts and beliefs surrounding the trauma experienced. Andrea is also trained in Parenting Through Change (PTC), which is an evidence-based group therapy that empowers parents/guardians with the necessary skills to encourage cooperation in children struggling with behavior issues. Parents/guardians are the best possible teachers for their child or teen, therefore, they are very important in participating in the therapy experience. 

Andrea’s creativity and flexibility assists in providing a non-judgemental space while providing interventions such as: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Parenting Through Change, Motivational Interviewing, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy for ages 3 and up.

Thriveworks Counseling Detriot

Therapist

★★★★★
Megan Dunne is my Therapist. I’ve had a few therapists throughout my life and it’s hard to find one that makes a difference and helps you. I’m learning a lot from her and I use the techniques she taught me in stressful situations. Great Therapist!
