Melissa Behrends-Gelfman

Marriage and Family Therapist-Associate

Melissa has been in the mental health field for over 20 years, serving varying degrees of populations from children ages birth to adult populations ages up to 83. Melissa finds that she has the most passion for at risk populations such as those who are from Department of Children and Family Services environments as well as homeless and substance abuse populations. She has a strong desire to help others find their own voices, to empower the clients to take control of their lives and return to a baseline of functionality that can be conducive to future growth for the individual as well as those within the family system. Melissa strongly believes that no impact can be made unless the entire family system is changed, not just the individual which is being scapegoated. Every individual has the power within themselves to bring about that systemic change with the right tools and that is what gives Melissa her genuine and authentic purpose. Melissa’s main methods and modalities frequently used are solution focused brief therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and has also been trained in EMDR therapy.
