About Me

Have you lost sight of hope due to emotional stress, anxiety, past trauma and abuse, or as a result of difficult relationships? I believe hope is what drives emotions, relationships, job satisfaction, and life fulfillment. It is the light that leads back to a full life. Therefore, my practice is based on hope. I always keep hope before me, and I will help you find yours as we work together through your struggles and emotions.
I am a Christian (a Christ-follower) and a bilingual English and Spanish counselor who treats individuals and families. My specialty is treating those with traumatic experiences, such as childhood sexual or physical abuse, along with treating those with Depression and other severe emotional disorders, such as Bipolar or Schizoaffective Disorder. I am also experienced in treating individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I regularly treat other individual struggles such as anxiety, self-esteem problems, and other life difficulties, as well.
I believe a trusting and honest relationship with my clients is key in a healing therapeutic relationship. My approach to treatment combines client-centered with cognitive behavioral and narrative therapy interventions. Every individual is unique, so my approach will be tailored to your unique needs
Any struggle can be difficult to overcome. When necessary, there's nothing wrong with asking for help. I believe I can guide you and help you find your identity and fulfillment in Christ. I believe you can and will have victory through Christ over your challenges, gain new perspective, and find renewed hope!

I have recommended this sight and my counselor to several friends and even to a couple of therapists friends! Melinda Siders has been an incredible blessing in my life. She is the calm in my very stormy week! I love that she has this amazing way of knowing just what I need to hear through scripture and life examples! Knowing that no matter how bad my week has been she is praying for and with me gives me the boost I need to keep fighting on! I thank God daily for this web sight and for Melinda a most caring, devoted, patient, and truly vested in her patients, counselor/therapist!!

Mindy has been a true angel in my life. She has helped me through some of my life's toughest challenges in the last four months. God hand choose her when he matched us together. She has given me wonderful insight, self-introspection, healing, and inspiration. I am sad to say goodbye, but you have gracefully empowered me to be the woman I once was again. Thank you for your services, I will be forever grateful for the gifts of your wisdom which have bestowed upon my heart.

I love how Melinda is professional and friendly all at the same time. She makes me feel comfortable and helps me to work through the thoughts I'm having. She also helps me by asking the questions I never thought of which in turn brings more growth and revelation.

Mindy is one of the best, if not the best, counselors I've ever had in my life. She stuck with me for several months and saw me through the ups and downs of my life, however crazy it got haha. Having made this incredible life transition in my life, I can say that it's been very successful so far and a bold Testament of my faith in something greater than myself. Mindy helped me strengthen that faith and now I can say that I feel more confident than ever to continue my journey in this new world with the wisdom I got from her. So I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling to find their way and follow their faith, Mindy is the best, guaranteed! P. S. And yes, I did get that mattress topper after all! My hands are held high!
