About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in the state of NC with over 7 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of ages and concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, OCD, trauma related disorders, low self-esteem, motivation issues, adjustment disorders, and ADHD. The majority of my experience has been with children, teens, and young adults. I enjoy working with the youth of today to help secure a strong solid future for tomorrow.

My counseling style is warm and accepting. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and solution focused therapy. I have a strong appreciation for art and understand the power of art in therapy. I believe that through a strong therapeutic relationship change can occur. I will focus my energy in allowing you to feel heard, cared for, and understood. This will allow you to unlock your true desires and ideas for your next steps. Your future is yours and you will be the author of your story. My role is to help you to embrace your strengths, work with your weaknesses, and help you to reach your own goals.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melanie Brinson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
