Hi! My name is Melanie Cephas, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Texas working with clients via Telehealth.
I use a variety of various interventions, such as EMDR, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and multiple other therapies and techniques to meet each client's individual needs.
I am a therapist who specializes in working with individuals between the ages of 12-30 that struggle with anxiety, depression, anger management, unresolved past trauma, stress, grief/loss, relationship issues, and lack of social and communication skills.
My communication style
I provide a warm, encouraging, empathetic atmosphere and use a collaborative approach to work with you. As your therapist, my goal is to provide you with a safe space where you feel comfortable and help you get to a place where you can work towards healing and say goodbye to anger, sadness, fear, and anxiety and say hello to peace, hope, love, and joy. If you are ready to take the next steps, please reach out to me so that we can walk through this journey together.
My first session with you
In your first session, we will explore any past experiences in therapy and what brought you to therapy, then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. We will also discuss the root cause of the presenting issue at hand and work together to address that presenting issue(s) in sessions in order to clear anything that is preventing you from accomplishing your goals in therapy.
