About me

I am an experienced counselor specializing in anxiety, depression and child and adolescent grief therapy.

Hello and Welcome! My name is Melissa. I am an experienced, licensed mental health counselor and owner of Rock Haven Counseling. I currently work with both adults as well as children. My background includes over 20 years in the helping field. Aside from individual counseling, I have facilitated several groups such as: co-parenting groups, divorce support, bereavement groups and professional peer support groups.
I am a certified grief counseling specialist for children and adolescents and have worked extensively with traumatized children who have experienced profound loss. I also provide parent coaching when needed to educate and guide parents of very young children in understanding their child’s behavior. I offer solution-focussed strategies to working with your child while assisting parents in decreasing their own stress and anxiety.
I believe that therapy requires your commitment and active involvement to reach the goals you hope to achieve. I will utilize various counseling techniques and tools based on your individual needs. Working with you, I will help you to recognize your strengths, learn new positive coping skills and develop problem solving skills to build resiliency. I may ask you to practice new behaviors and approaches both in and out of sessions.
Do you have a desire to change your situation or circumstances? Are you looking for a fresh perspective to a current life issue? Do you want to renew your sense of hope? If so, working together, I can help you identify and build upon your own strengths and interests. I will help guide you through the process of self empowerment; opening the path to that inner peace that comes from positive change.
