About Clarity Family Therapy

At Clarity Family Therapy services, our motto is โ€œmeet them where theyโ€™re atโ€ with the client in mind, and your therapist is determined to provide you with observations, insights, tools, and guidance that you can utilize to find useful to also feel more confident and secure in going about how you approach and manage the many challenges and adversities you face.

While trials come and go, you may not always seek therapy because you are quite versed at handling things on your own. Yet, when youโ€™ve determined that you might need a little extra help, that isnโ€™t a sign of weakness, thatโ€™s a sign of bravery. Society has stigmatized those that seek out therapy when therapy is only a tool to be used to help you live your best and fullest life possible. Why not utilize services that are available at your fingertips?

Melissa Behrends-Gelfman

Marriage and Family Therapist-Associate

Melissa has served in the mental health field for over 20 years working with a range of populations from birth to adults up into their late 80s. Melissa takes a trauma-based approach and believes that most pathology comes from trauma responses due to trauma experiences. Melissa has a strong desire to help others re-write their own narratives by reframing the catastrophic thinking dominant in todayโ€™s society. Melissa encourages clients toward a more conducive and vital to growth mindset that all humans are capable of achieving through reframing of personal negative cognitions. The human brain is geared towards healing and health, rather than pathology as Melissa would posit from her learning experiences in EMDR training. Melissa has found her genuine and authentic purpose in Private Practice where most of her clients are benefiting from her main modalities: EMDR, Solution-Focused brief therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Brief Narrative Therapy. Melissa takes a holistic approach to meeting her clients where they are because she feels each client is unique and wholly different, requiring different and innovative interventions and strategies, not just some cookie-cutter interventions out of a book.
