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.
I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. I focus on practical, realistic ways for you to work towards goals and find your path.
Melanie recently returned to Iowa after living in Oregon for the last eleven years. For the last five years of that she was part of a mobile response team, responding with police for those experiencing a mental health crisis out in the community. She found it to be an extremely rewarding opportunity and loved being involved in such an innovative program. She is excited to be shifting gears into providing ongoing therapy, as crisis work can be limited to only a few meetings. Melanie received her bachelor's degree at Iowa Wesleyan University and her master's in social work from St. Ambrose University. Melanie specializes in using interventions that are logical and practical, while tailored to the individual at the same time. Life isn't easy; at times, even the little things can seem insurmountable. Melanie knows that life is busy and demanding. She will not waste your time with impractical nonsense. She is fully prepared to teach new skills and guide you towards finding balance, fulfillment and empowerment.
