Real Help For Real People

About Melissa Shane Counseling

Practice Highlights

I use a practical approach to help you, your child, or your family gain real world solutions in a way that honors your privacy and busy schedule. I know no single approach is the best one for each individual, so I have been trained and have experience in a range of modalities.

  • Gender identity and LGBTQI issues

Client Promise

I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. The goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. 


Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I am able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 



Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. I provide a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationships.
