Barbara Melton, MEd, LPC, NCC, MAC, CAC-II, Counselor in Charleston
Barbara Melton is not currently accepting new clients.
NO NEW CLIENTS UNTIL MID-SEPTEMBER! I employ a variety of therapy techniques tailored to your specific needs. My style often includes homework items to maximize your therapy dollar. I subscribe to the belief 'the problem is not the problem' -- it's actually a symptom of what really is the problem. I will work with you to enhance coping skills so as to replace symptoms that are adversely affecting your life. Most issues that bring people to therapy stem from grief/loss, whether through traumatic circumstances or otherwise. I work w/folks who are coping w/life in ways that are not healthy for them.
I help people explore new ways of dealing w/the stressors in their lives in order to improve their quality of life. Harmful behaviors are not the problem -- it's why you are driven to engage in troublesome behaviors as a coping mechanism that is the real problem.
The work that needs to be done is unique to the individual and centers around finding effective ways to help deal w/distressing feelings. That is the journey. I accept all major credit/debit cards/Paypal.
