Melissa E. Tate-Scruse, EdD, LPCS, Licensed Professional Counselor in Charlotte
I am a thriving mental health professional with practical experiences in both public and private domains of behavioral health from the past 10 years. Before relocating to North Carolina in 2012, I was instrumental in the delivery of services to some of the most clinically complicated cases in the State of Maryland. This includes work with chronic mentally ill children, adolescents, adults and disrupted families with various struggles. However, my expertise is also relevant to those adjusting to difficulties of life, relational problems within marriage and family, or those seeking a confidante to work through personal dilemmas.
I pride myself on being able to form an honest interpersonal rapport that allows a strong platform for the change process. I have experience with: Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, Mood Swings, Parent-Child Relational Problems, Trauma, Self injury, Anger Management, Substance Abuse, Grief/Loss, and many other areas of mental health.
