Melissa Wheelock is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has been practicing for over 20 years. She has served as a Therapist, Supervisor, Program Manager, Trainer, and Consultant. Melissa has had the opportunity to work with children, adolescents, adults, and families providing therapy, supervision, training, education, and crisis intervention. Melissa has worked in non-profit and community based settings along-side social services, schools, law enforcement and medical providers. She uses a Cognitive Behavioral Model infused with a person centered, mindfulness based approach that allows people to feel at ease as they discover how their own beliefs and thoughts contribute to some of their biggest problems.
As a licensed therapist, I feel so fortunate to have chosen this field and so privileged to be able to help people learn new skills to cope with life's challenges. I believe that therapy, in its' truest form, is really about providing compassionate support and guidance so that people can get in touch with their true thoughts and emotions and have a safe place to express themselves. Through the years, my training and experience has allowed me to offer more to my clients, but it is from this strength based philosophy that my journey as a therapist began.
