A graduate of Assumption College, Melanie has known for a long time that she wanted to help people. “At the end of my first year of college, I declared my major for human services and rehabilitation because I knew that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives,” she explains. “I feel that I have a genuine drive to help individuals and a desire to see people succeed and achieve their goals.”
Melanie has her master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling and is a certified rehabilitation counselor (CRC). In addition to her license in drug and alcohol counseling (LADC), she is also a licensed advanced chemical dependency professional (LCDP). Melanie enjoys helping patients work on their recovery. “Addiction is a very complex disease and for many individuals it takes a substantial amount of work to get sober and maintain that sobriety. That’s why I always foster a positive attitude toward change plus a willingness to enter into that individual’s journey alongside them.”
Melanie believes that it is imperative to treat the whole person and to view each individual as unique and without any judgements, regardless of their personal history. “I strongly believe in strength-based treatment and empowering the individual to make the changes they need to make to achieve their goals – as well as challenging them to change their lives.”
In her spare time Melanie enjoys reading, cooking, crafting, shopping and writing to her pen pals. She also enjoys exploring different cultures through community events, spending time with good friends, snuggling with her cat Chewy and watching her favorite Netflix shows.
