What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. By deciding to come to therapy, you are taking the first step in a journey that I hope will be meaningful and insightful.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Melanie Dudek is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with over 4 years of experience. She primarily works with adults across the lifespan who are managing issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, new or chronic illness, caregiver fatigue, grief, and end-of-life issues. Melanie completed her Master's degree in Social Work at Simmons University. Melanie values the experience and intersectional identities that her clients hold, which enables her to tailor her therapeutic approach to meet her clients' individual needs. Her approach with each client is unique, multifactorial, and evolves over time. She utilizes a trauma-informed approach and draws from elements of narrative therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solutions-focused therapy (SFT), and mindfulness. In your work together, Melanie will meet you where you are at and you will work together to identify, define, and address your goals. She is eager to hear your story, learn from you, and support you in whatever is bringing you to this space. If you are ready to take the next step, schedule an appointment.
