Guided Wellness Counseling

EMDR Therapist

Move past your past,
into an adventurous life.

Meet Melissa Spaulding | EMDR Therapist

Since 2006 I have counseled overworked and overwhelmed individuals to move past their past and into creative, purposeful lives. What keeps me moving forward is a desire to craft effective, meaningful, creative interventions for my clients. I feed this desire through advanced training regarding my specialty work with trauma (big or small) and it’s sources. I’ve been trained as an EMDR Therapist since 2011 and Post Induction Therapy (a method to assist those who grew up in dysfunctional families) since 2009. I also have training in Sand Tray therapy, a wonderful alternative for those who prefer a hands-on approach to personal insight.

Why Therapy?

“Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted?”

“Does it feel like you are held back by your past?”

“Are you struggling to connect with others?”

“Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else?”

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here.

And I know this is hard. You’ve likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years. But I’m so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step of being here.

“Understand. Heal. Grow. We Can Do This Together”

Who Is Therapy For?

I’m confident that together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome your challenges. Whether you’re struggling with trauma, depression, or anxiety, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey. I have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I understand no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you’ve always wanted.

I would be honored if you would share your story with me, I’m ready when you are.
