About Melissa Babiarz

I have been in private practice since January 2011, but I’ve been in the field of mental health and substance use counseling since 1999. Over the last 20+ years I’ve often witnessed people falling through the cracks or having to adjust themselves to the requirements of various agencies. I decided to go into private practice as a way to provide comprehensive and personalized alternatives to traditional counseling for people seeking help.I have been helping people deal with life issues, including urge management, trauma and various addictions for over 20 yrs! I have worked in a variety of settings from being the Director of a hospital based counseling program to an adjunct faculty position at a local college. I am well prepared to help you deal with stress, anxiety, depression, alcohol abuse, substance abuse, trauma, OCD, and LGBT issues. I am trained in EMDR and I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, training new trauma therapists.

I am a skilled listener with a focus on you and you will find me insightful and direct, yet never judgmental. I look forward to discussing your goals and how I can help you achieve them.Confidentiality and privacy is as important to me as it is to you. I monitor my own phone line and when you call you will reach me directly. I schedule and maintain my own appointment calendar. All of my services are provided via Telehealth from the privacy, safety, comfort and confidentiality of your own home
