About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama with over 20 years of experience. I've always had a desire to help people even as a little girl. My motto in life is "How can I help?" I have worked with individuals with a wide range of concerns including substance abuse, anger issues, parenting/co-parenting problems, relationship issues, intimate partner violence, anxiety, depression, and physical/psychological trauma.

My therapy style is direct and interactive. I believe in building rapport in order to establish the therapeutic alliance within the first few weeks of therapy. I believe Spirituality to be a fundamental part in the counseling process. I believe that a Power greater than myself can heal and restore. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and genuineness. I prefer a variety of approaches to treatment such as existential therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, solution focused therapy, and person-centered treatment just to mention a few. However, the approach selected will meet the individual exactly where they are. Treatment plans' goals and objectives are formulated based on the individual’s strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences.

It takes strength and courage to invest in a more fulfilling and happier life. Thinking for a change will assist in gaining a new perspective and outlook. So if you are ready to take that step, then I ask,

"How can I help?"

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melanie Walton. 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.

Melanie has been amazing since we started working together. She listens to me and provides me solution based approaches to issues we discuss.
