Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Melinda Vesely "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!"

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.
