Melinda Vesely's Care Philosophy

My name is Melinda, I believe that everyone can improve their lives through counseling and therapy. Life does not have to be filled with suffering, stress, anxiety, or depression. Treatment is based on the belief that we heal through the mind, body, and spirit. I offer a unique approach to counseling with a sense of humor. I have extensive training the evidenced based treatment modalities including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Mindfulness, and Biofeedback. These types of therapy have been proven to have success in reducing anxiety and depression in only a few sessions! Most people notice a shift in their life after the first session! If you are ready to make life changes I am honored to help guide you!

Melinda is super easy to talk to and I always leave her office feeling understood. Its easy to get on her schedule and she handles everything very professionally.
Thank you for the kind review.

Melinda is a brilliant beam of light in a world darkened by depression. Her compassion and support shine ithroughout the sessions. I have felt affirmed, validated, encouraged and challenged by her. She presents new ways of looking at old situations and brings a fresh perspective to that of using failed techniques to handle problems and deal with challenges. I find that she is helping me to "change my mind". I highly recommend her to those who are trying to do the same!
C- Thanks so much for the kind words. I am so happy to hear that you benefit so much from coming in! My goal is for you to leave feeling exactly as you said affirmed, validated, encouraged, and challenged!!

I love Melinda, she is so understanding. I look forward to talking with her every week because it always makes me feel better.
Streator, IL |
I got the impression that Melinda was not fully invested in helping me. She appeared distracted by her own problems. She could not recall anything that had been discussed in previous sessions. She also cancelled on me numerous times.
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear of your negative experience, as your experience is not at all indicative of our patient care standards.

I have extensive training in treating anxiety and trauma. If you suffer from anxiety I am confident that you have come to the right place and together we are going to get your life back!

Melinda Vesely says...

The concept of the Mind Body connection has been in existence for thousands of years, and stems from the belief that your mental, emotional, and spiritual self are not separate from your physical body. For example, have you ever come down with a cold during a time of stress? It is simple for us to accept the idea of that physical pain can impact our emotions, however it can be more difficult to accept that our emotional pain may impact our physical state. It is imperative that we recognize how anxiety, depression, and stress effect our body.
