About Melinda

I love to help people and enjoy when people feel successful. As a MSW degree holder who works full time as a counselor for people with brain injuries, I utilize my skills as an advocate, counselor and trainer to help people achieve their goals. As a counselor, I provide help with stress reduction and learning techniques.
I have had experience tutoring junior high through college on study skills and test taking anxiety. I have worked with students from elementary level on reading and writing, to college level liberal art students and psychology majors. I look forward to helping people be their best!

As a professional in the helping field, I am required to write clear and concise reports. Assessing and understanding an individual's thinking and organizational skills is a first step in creating an essay or report. Once you have the big picture, developing an outline is the next step. Communication skills are also an important part of the process and that is what I specialize in.

As a social worker, I have specialized in organizational skills working with people who have brain injuries. My job is to re-teach skills they have already learned. I also have 20 years experience with stress reduction and test anxiety. As a parent, I am familiar with the curriculum kids are learning in schools and I understand the demands on them.

I am happy to answer any questions. It is important to feel comfortable with whomever you work with. I look forward to talking with you and helping you get to know me.
