Melissa Clendaniel, LPCMH
Hello! My name is Melissa Clendaniel and I am a licensed professional counselor. I provide counseling services for children, teens, and adults here at State of Mind Counseling. I have always been passionate about the field of psychology and mental health. Helping others find their empowerment and voice has been truly rewarding. I have worked with populations struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, substance use, psychosis, communication barriers, mood disorders, life adjustments, and anger management. I use a variety of approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing. I am also trained in CBT-P and TF-CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis and trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy). I like to work together in a collaborative approach with individuals to help them obtain their goals. My approach to therapy can be described as empathetic, warm, authentic, and accepting without judgement. I believe strongly in meeting individuals where they are and working together towards where they want to be.
