Hello and welcome! My name is Erika Melear and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
Counseling is a confidential process designed to help you address your concerns, come to a greater understanding of yourself, and learn effective personal and interpersonal coping strategies. It involves a relationship between you and a trained therapist who has the desire and willingness to help you accomplish your individual goals. Counseling involves sharing sensitive, personal, and private information that may at times be distressing. During the course of counseling, there may be periods of increased anxiety or confusion. The outcome of counseling is often positive; however, the level of satisfaction for any individual is not predictable. I am available to support you throughout the counseling process.
My training includes a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology, as well as a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology. I have been licensed for over 2 years and working in the therapeutic field for 8 years. The majority of my experience has been working with children and families who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma and behavioral concerns.
