Melissa E. Muller is passionate about working with individuals and families seeking growth, a deeper sense of life purpose, and who desire to know and experience their full potential. Her gifts lie in her curiosity and genuine care for others, their stories, and their need to tell them. She connects with people, and she is able to instantly make them feel at ease, understood, and strengthened by providing a place to voice and own their “stuff”.
Melissa’s empathy shines through in her ability to state the hard things, to say the comforting things, and to ask questions without leading. Her love for the human experience, and for the connection/bond that is formed in a therapeutic relationship is made evident in each of her interactions, reflections, and questions. Melissa’s passion for being in tune with others is most clear when one sits down to talk with her for any length of time.
More About Me
Approach to Therapy
My approach integrates the emotional, physical, spiritual, and social components of each client and how they affect their development. Not only are each of these areas considered, they are deeply explored as is relevant to the clients’ needs.
My goal is then to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges with compassion and understanding. I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
My areas of expertise include:
- Trauma & PTSD
- Anxiety & Stress
- Relationship Challenges
- Identity Development
- Individual Counseling
- Children and Adolescent Counseling
- ADHD Coaching: Check-out ADHD COLLECTIVE!
My range of experience includes counseling at a substance abuse treatment center, church-planting overseas, and conducting research on neuro-feedback and its effects on ADHD and anxiety.
These experiences differ in many ways, and each has been a meaningful step along the way in my own journey of personal growth. I recognize that each client also has their own unique growth process.
In addition, I am the director of the ADHD COLLECTIVE, which provides ADHD coaching.
