Melissa Barton, Owner | Therapist

MA, LPC-S

Hello! Thanks for visiting our website.

I have over 12 years of experience working with young adults, teens, and their families dealing with a variety of issues including transitioning into adulthood, school issues, career/college guidance, family conflict, self-esteem, depression/anxiety, self-harm, and relationship struggles.

I also enjoy working with adults looking to have healthier balance in their lives, manage stress, cope with mental health issues, and have better boundaries in their relationships.

I am married with 3 children, and a proud Aggie, class of 2004!

I take a client-centered approach to therapy, creating individualized goals with my clients.  I often utilize Cognitive-behavioral Therapy as well. Feel free to contact me for more info!

The work Melissa has done with our teenage son has not only helped him navigate these challenging years but has also brought our family closer in the process.  Any parent considering her services should know that she will create an instant bond, address the immediate needs of their child, and adjust her approach as needed if things aren’t going as planned.  Therapy for a child often impacts the entire family.  Melissa will be open to communicating and answering your questions throughout while ensuring the child is always her number one focus.  Most importantly, her genuine empathy and caring demeanor simply can’t be taught - we’re lucky to have found her and don’t know where our family would be without her.
