Melissa A. Martin, MA, LPC, LLMFT

As a client, you can expect empathy, understanding, compassion, genuineness, unconditional positive regard in a safe and non-judgmental environment.  I believe the therapist’s main goal is to create a safe and non-judgmental environment for the client and to facilitate the framework and tools to help the client reach their goals.  The goal is never for the therapist to make choices for the client. 

A solid client-therapist relationship should be established early on in the sessions.  This relationship must be built on mutual trust and respect.  I feel without a trust-based relationship; therapy will not be productive or meaningful.  Counseling can provide insight, support and a new outlook on life, as well as strategies for personal growth, and coping with life’s challenges.  I believe you are an expert in your own life, therefore, the counseling process is a collaborative experience between the client and the therapist.  ​
