Melissa Cummins, MA, LCMHCA

What is stopping you or your family member from living a life of courage, confidence, and success? Melissa believes that our thoughts, behavior, and emotion affect our ability to live and embrace our best life.

As a parent, daughter, former teacher, corporate professional and youth activities volunteer, Melissa believes that through voluntary acceptance of our past, present, and future, you can build and embrace the skills and courage needed to lead, love and live your best life. She realizes that it's difficult to acknowledge the need for help. So if you're an adult suffering from anxiety or depression, a couple with difficulty communicating and making the most of your relationship, or have a child who is struggling emotionally with school or relationships, Melissa is here to help.

Throughout her former career as a Certified Teacher, Melissa gained a great deal of experience and perspective working with children, adolescents, teens and parents on multiple levels of the educational, familial and social spectrum. She is also certified as a facilitator in Prepare to Enrich. This is a journey that believes couples thrive with understanding and acknowledgment that relationships can be messy and none are perfect. Through the Prepare to Enrich program, truly committed couples can gain a deeper understanding of dynamics, personality, stress, strength and therefore grow together and move forward in a healthy and loving relationship.

Melissa values the opportunity to provide art and play therapy opportunities for her clients young and old while she also uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) and/or Trauma-Focused Therapy (TFT) techniques as well. Additionally, Melissa is Level 2 trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for the treatment of PTSD.

Helping to uncover the strength, beauty, and confidence that is so often hidden from individuals is a passion of Melissa’s and she looks forward to introducing you and/or your family members to their true selves.

In her downtime, Melissa enjoys art, reading, being with pets and animals, baking and spending time with her family.
