Melissa Pfenning's bio

This content was provided by Melissa Pfenning "I was born in Montana and I grew up here in Post Falls, and moved to Arizona in the middle of my junior year of high school. After graduating high school, I flew to Maryland to be a nanny. I married there and had 2 sons. I divorced in 1995 and moved with my two boys back to Montana where I lived until 2002. I moved back to Post Falls in 2002, and went to college. I received my Master's in Education/emphasis on Vocational Rehabilitation and Community Counseling in 2008. I earned my Clinic license status in 2010. Since exiting college, I have attending numerous training opportunities involving trauma. I am fully trained in EMDR and Neurofeedback. I absolutely love the work I do, and see myself doing this until I retire. In addition to the work I do, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 2 grown boys. My husband and I are avid hunters and we love spending time in the woods on the weekends. If you want or feel the need to know more about me, feel free to ask. :)"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Melissa Pfenning "I believe that every person has the potential to be great. I have full respect for the individual ambiguity of each person, and strive to meet your needs as they are.  Your life journey is your own life journey.  This process we work together is not about me, it is about you.  I work to help you identify your personal goals, identify where you are in the process of reaching those goals, meet you where you are and journey with you until you have reached those goals.  I thoroughly enjoy this process, as I know that the end result is a much fuller, happier, richer life for you. "

Melissa is great with my son. He loves to come for his session with her each week because she has made him feel special and welcome. Her office is very comfortable and Melissa has been great with sharing what she knows and helping us to understand it. I highly recommend Melissa for her work!
