Malissa is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. She holds Master Degrees in Mental Health Counseling from Webster University and School Counseling (K-12) from University of North Carolina, Charlotte. She graduated with her BA in Psychology and minors in Education and Social Work from University of South Carolina, Columbia. She also earned her GCDF certificate from Midland Technical so that she can help clients learn about their place in the world to work.
Malissa is most passionate about people, and her motto for clients is: Let’s work together to become your overall “best/better” SELF!! Malissa has worked tirelessly to help children of all ages and adults feel good about themselves, no matter what the past or present may look like.
We work together to make “you, the client” feel whole and worthy! Malissa’s previous work stems from children and adults; thus, the family unit (couples) is an area that comes naturally for her.
As we process your life path, we will use my skills in Narrative Therapy (values/importance you tell yourself), Solution Focus (where you’re heading/future self), Motivational Interviewing (why do you do what you do) and CBT (ways to change what you do). Malissa is also trained in Prepare/Enrich and Brain-spotting.
During my downtime, I enjoy eating, traveling, zip lining (internationally) and spending time with my daughter, son and grand pup Brax!
