Hello, I’m Melanie and my goal as a therapist is to help you meet your goals and become your best self! After graduating with my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 2014, I spent 3 years working as a case manager for children with disabilities and 4 years working as a clinical therapist before coming to Sollars and Associates.
Personally, I enjoy practicing yoga, walking my dog, and catching up on TV shows. Professionally I love to continue learning about my field – if I’m not taking a continuing education course I’m probably reading a book or listening to a podcast about mental health.
I am trained in DBT, EMDR, and elements of many other interventions to assist in processing trauma and learning how to manage thoughts and emotions in a healthy way. I have experience in providing treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, among many other things. I work with children and adults ages 13 and up. I am currently providing face-to-face psychotherapy out of the Auburn Hills office and providing teletherapy via Google Meet.
