Melanie Jones, MA, LPC, ACCHT, Counselor in Tinley Park
I am one of only a handful of therapists in the Chicago area who specialize in gender identity issues. I work with both individuals who identify as transgendered or crossdressers and with those around them who want to be supportive or better understand this life issue. I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapist, working on all issues that can be treated through this process, including anxiety, depression, anger, relationships, weight, smoking, and sports enhancement especially for golfers. I use sublimable suggestions and age regression for those negative actions/thoughts that repeat themselves and need to be changed.
Because I am non judgemental, my goal is to always help those I work with to feel better about who they are, what they can do, and how to accomplish living a more positive life. I also work with other family issues, depression and self awareness.
As one of only a handful of therapists in the area and the only one working in the south suburbs who specializes and understands gender issues, I have been told by those I help, that my empathetic skills and ability to listen are outstanding.
