HUES OF HEALING
Different therapeutic approaches offer different solutions-- some more long-term and some more short-term. I work from an integrative approach that is individualized to fit each client's unique needs because no two people are the same, no two problems are the same, and no two responses to a problem are the same. Like the hues of colors shifting, so is the inner self as one becomes more aware, awake, and whole.
Melissa Bode, MA
Licensed Mental Health Counselor #MH20218
Welcome! My name is Melissa Bode and I am the licensed mental health counselor behind Hues of Healing Counseling, LLC. I graduated with my master's degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Central Florida and have had extensive experience in the field.
I have always enjoyed listening to people’s stories and offering a compassionate ear which led to my passion to become a mental health counselor. I have also seen so much growth by engaging in my own personal work which adds to my desire to help others do the same.
My clinical experience includes working with adolescents, teenagers, adults, couples, and families in outpatient and intensive outpatient settings. During my time working in the intensive outpatient setting, my passion for strengthening parent-child relationships, parenting and co-parenting struggles, and healthy communication styles grew enormously.
I am experienced in working with individuals, couples, and families for treating anxiety, depression, impulse control and behavioral issues, communication challenges, relationship difficulties, stress management, eating issues, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), trauma, and more.
Taking the first step to heal can be scary, and the thought of finding the right therapist to help you may feel even scarier.
Every person experiences difficult times in their lives, and sometimes these experiences become so exhausting that additional support is needed-- and that is okay.
In fact, therapy is for people that have enough self-awareness to realize they need some additional support. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, reconstruct damaging patterns, and overcome challenges you might face.
I invite you to contact me to see if I may be a good fit to support you on your journey to healing and make the changes you are desiring. If we are not a good fit, that is okay! I can help direct you to a therapist that might be a better fit your needs.
