Melissa Gray

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

We all need a little help sometimes. Therapy is a great tool to have to overcome life’s tough times. Are you new to therapy? Or someone who has seen a therapist before? Regardless of your previous experiences with therapy, I offer everyone a safe, private and professional experience. Together we will address your concerns and then plan and execute change. As far back as I can remember, I have always been concerned with other people’s happiness. As a child I knew that one day I would have a career in a “helping profession”. I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit MI in 2006 with a master’s degree in social work, a minor in psychology and a solid foundation on treating people using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I have continued to grow in my profession over the years. I have 15 years of experience working not only as a therapist but also as a medical social worker. Implementing change, managing crisis’s and providing life changing resources in clinics, emergency rooms, and in medical wards across metro Detroit. My approach to therapy is a holistic one. I provide support and feedback to assist clients as they address their personal life challenges. I believe in empowering clients to build on their strengths to obtain personal growth. As a holistic mental health clinician, I am passionate about assisting others through life issues and stress so they can grow and heal in mind, body and spirit.
If you need guidance and support, I offer a safe healing space to work through difficulties. I strive to provide a comfortable, respectful and accepting therapeutic environment. Due to my vast professional history I am comfortable working with all populations and hope to work with you.
