“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety” (Abraham Maslow). Sometimes what feels safe, comfortable, and familiar, is actually unhealthy; change can be hard and the unknown scary. Do you feel stuck, repeating toxic patterns or negative thinking? Have life events or stress become overwhelming or seem unmanageable? Maybe you just need a supportive space to talk about what you’re going through and how you are feeling.

Melanie Black, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Melanie Black is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who works with children and adolescents having difficulty managing stressors associated with family life. She is able to assist caregivers in developing parenting and co-parenting plans that align with the needs of their child(ren). She specializes in trauma recovery, grief and loss, anxiety, and depression. Melanie enjoys working with millennials struggling with anxiety, stress, and life transitions. LGBTQI needs is an additional area of clinical focus. She has a special interest in helping clients with vocational and career counseling needs. Melanie enjoys teaching clients mindfulness meditation techniques social and coping skills. She is open to integrating clients' various spiritual and religious beliefs into the therapeutic process.

"I have learned that the most powerful intervention when working with children is to help parents and caregivers develop the skills and tools needed to support their child. You are the expert on your child. Rather than working with a small child individually for one or two hours a week, we will make more progress if I serve as a guide and coach to parents. I often help parents learn how to manage their child's behaviors at home by providing practical strategies and problem-solving support. Working with behavior challenges can be overwhelming for parents and caregivers. Once I get to know a child and learn more about their needs, I often encourage parents to come to sessions without the child so that we can speak candidly about the family's struggles and develop ideas to address the child and parent's needs.

I honestly believe that millennials are uniquely positioned in history to help our country and communities heal and grow. Being a young adult can be exciting, confusing, and stressful. I want to help millennials thrive and become their best selves so that they can make the positive difference they want to see in the world!

Usually, we get the "boring stuff" out of the way first otherwise known as policy, procedure, and billing. I then share that I am a Licenced Professional Counselor, which is kind of like a general practitioner for mental health. I know a little bit about a lot of issues and if I don't feel like I am the right person to help you, I will do my best to get you to the right person. I tell folks that I have a collaborative style, meaning that while I may suggest strategies and help you navigate your feelings and thoughts, you will always be the expert on yourself.

I also encourage people to let me know if something isn't working for them throughout the counseling process or if we just aren't a good fit. This is because your relationship with your counselor is going to be the most important contributing factor to your success in therapy. Once new clients have had a chance to ask questions, I ask them to tell me the story of what brings them here. I also ask additional questions to assess the new client's needs. At the end of the session, we talk together about the frequency of treatment needed and scheduling."

She gave me a little tough love and guidance that I needed. With the help of Mary’s help, coping skills, -and medication, I feel like a new woman! Thanks Mary for all your help! You rock! ❤️
