I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I have been walking with the Lord over 20 years. I have provided group services as part of my ministry to those on probation and parole that may need drug education classes. It is my understanding if we allow the Lord to lead us; He will never steer us wrong. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I focus my work on those that need guidance with mental health needs and substance use. My goal is to support the client in personal growth and encourage them to find strength and empowerment to be successful in their treatment. I believe in providing a safe space for the client to express any thoughts or emotions without the risk of judgment. I promote person-centered care with each client, as well as an integrative approach to counseling to meet the client where they are. My treatment areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), grief, stress management and substance use disorder (SUD). I have experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melissa Barrett Thomas. 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.
Melissa has been an answer to pray and a divine appointment every time! I’m so grateful to God for her compassion, kindness, and understanding. She is keenly aware and gets to the root of my issue very smoothly. I am excited to continue my therapy with her!
