Melisa O. Furman, MA, LMSW, LSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Trooper
I am a Licensed Social Worker with a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work and Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I specialize in working with youth, adults and families to improve understanding difficult emotions. I help individuals understand how their emotional triggers impact their behaviors and inter-personal relationships with peers and family. I work with those who are currently experiencing Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, Learning Difficulties and Disabilities, and Post Traumatic Stress. I also work with couple's experiencing disconnection and disturbance in their love relationships using the cutting edge research of Emotionally Focused Couple's Therapy (EFT).
My true passion is working as therapeutic catalyst to promote positive change within youth and families. I provide treatment to the family as a whole and help to navigate community & school resources. I also specialize in working with families who are suffering from inter-relational conflict and extreme life-changes.
As a social worker, I am trained to take a non-judgmental and culturally competent approach. I strive to create a safe, therapeutic environment where self discovery, confidence, and healing can occur. My client's are given realistic and effective tools that they can use on a daily basis.
