Melany is a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Spring, Tx. Her dog, a shepherd mix, is Hazelnut. She is well trained and can join session if you like. If you have allergies or fears please let me know so I can put her in her kennel.

Among her areas of expertise are couples counseling, parent/teen dynamics, LGBTQIA, depression, anxiety, anger management, grief and loss, mood disorders, and working with Veterans, 1st responders, and high stress employees.
Melany is an interactive, solution-focused therapist. Her therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. She integrates complementary methodologies (styles of therapy) and techniques (coping tools) to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client.
