Melody specializes in working with young children and their families who are facing problems that are getting in the way of their relationships, sleep, play, learning, school, and family life activities. From expectant parents or teen parents, to grandparents who are parenting grandchildren, to children 0-8 who are struggling with big emotions, difficult changes, loss, trauma, or who are difficult to parent, she is experienced in helping children and their families grow through the challenges they face. Since young children don’t usually sit on couches and talk about their feelings, Melody employs her versatile training in Play Therapy using art, toys, games, and books to help children and families by speaking a child’s first language of play in her work. For families of faith, Melody is able to incorporate and include spiritual aspects in her work where appropriate.

Melody is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Registered Play Therapist, a Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional through the International Association of Trauma Professionals, and a trained clinical supervisor in her field. She currently serves as adjunct faculty at Wheaton College teaching both Family Therapy and Play Therapy for counseling students as well as providing supervision, consultation, post graduate training to other professionals and speaking in the community on issues related to children, parenting, and families for schools, churches, and other community organizations.
