Meet Melissa Wesner, LCPC - Lifespring Counseling Services Founder
Hello! I’m Melissa Wesner, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and founder of LifeSpring Counseling Services. In working with me, you can rest assured that you will be working with a counselor who is up-to-date on research and interventions in my areas of specialization.
With specialized training in Brainspotting, I help my clients work through trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, and difficult life circumstances. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental space where I introduce coping strategies to help people feel more in control of their thoughts, feelings, actions and circumstances. In general, I work with individuals who are motivated to make change, pursue personal growth, and live life with intention.
I’m known among my clients and colleagues for being supportive, empathetic, and patient while also providing accountability and challenge. In working together, you can expect that we will look at lifestyle balance and overall wellness.
