Melaney Thurman


About Me

Hello! My name is Melaney and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the state of Ohio. I have been working in the counseling profession since 2014 and in the mental health field since 2010.

I am currently employed full-time at The Center for Balanced Living which supports specified treatment for clients with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other disordered eating behaviors. Although eating disorders is my specialty, my practice and interventions stretch to cover the following other treatment concerns: conflict/stress, change/transitions, anxiety, grief/loss, depression, LGBTQIA, couples and family relationship issues among adolescents and adults. I use various treatment approaches depending on the presenting concerns. A few of my clinical approaches include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Client-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, strength-based interventions, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based interventions.

I feel that majority of my patients are quick to find that I am relaxed, calm and welcoming within the counseling experience. I am a liberal individual that is open to self-choice, one's interests, beliefs and values. My goal in counseling is to help you feel better about yourself, whatever that may entail, support you and help advocate for you. Together we can work on finding techniques, interventions and a counseling style that fits your needs in order to fulfill your life with value and meaning.

Regards to availability, I try to respond to a message within 24 hours at maximum. I am online responding to messages or conducting live sessions on average 5-6 days a week, with 1-2 days a week offline/unavailable.

Melaney has been a tremendous help in guiding me through some tough circumstances. She’s extremely understanding and is able to quickly and effectively identify my main concerns and support and encourage me identify what steps I need to take to move forward. I highly recommend her as a therapist for others.
