Melissa Ann Morrissette, LICSW, CDP, CMHS, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Edmonds
Children and adolescents deal with their own unique stresses and challenges at home, school, with peers. They are always working to find a balance between their own individuals needs and desires and the needs of their parents, family, teachers, and peers. I have worked with a variety of issues including, Abuse (physical, emotional, sexual), ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Adoption, Divorce, Obsessive Compulsive behaviors, Oppositional and defiant youth, and grief/loss.
I believe that therapeutic change can occur through a supportive, trusting, and collaborative relationship in which your strengths are drawn out and emphasized. Within this relationship, I work to empower you to increase awareness of yourself, your ways of relating, and your unique coping skills in the face of stress and change.
I have over ten years of experience working with youth, young adults and families. In therapy I use a variety of different therapy techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Solution-focused.
