Therapy in New York with Melanie Downs
I am an independently practicing Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York and a Nationally Certified Counselor providing individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, family therapy, and group therapy as well as clinical supervision for graduate students and post graduates for hours in mental health counseling.
I am an integrative therapist practicing since 2003 in a variety of community and educational settings. I have worked with individuals facing career and life identity and transition issues, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship concerns, addiction, disability adjustment, and parenting difficulties. Additionally I have led workshops and presentations in local agencies, graduate programs, and schools on a variety of mental health and wellness topics.
At the heart of my therapy practice is the core belief that individuals are the experts on their own lives. We all need some extra support from time to time as we navigate our way through life and relationships. Some of us have experienced traumatic events that leave us feeling stuck and powerless to move ahead. I see therapy as a non-judgmental space. Therapy doesn't have to be about labels, but rather a way to explore areas life where unhealthy patterns and pain may have emerged. In therapy we work collaboratively on the issues and areas of life you want to see change with openness, warmth, and humor so you can move forward and discover a more satisfying life.
