Under Clinical Supervision

Melanie Maddox, Associate Clinical Social Worker, 116137 is practicing under the supervision of Anita Kaplan (California, LCSW, 22677) at Healing Connections Counseling.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

My background in early intervention research and personal experiences with mental health struggles in my family have fueled my passion for supporting others. Inspired by my own mentors and mental health providers, I hope to guide my own clients towards tapping into their resilience, finding genuine joy in witnessing their healing and growth.

Work History

I have worked as a therapist in community mental health settings, in outpatient clinics, and working in non-profit wraparound services. Previously, I worked conducting clinical research and neuropsychological assessments and as a mental health coach. I completed a Master's in Clinical Psychology from UNC Greensboro and Master of Social Work degree from the University of Utah. This unique combination of educational backgrounds has equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of human behavior, mental health, and effective therapeutic interventions with a social justice lens.
