More About Melinda Dols

Clinical Interests:

I work with children, adolescents, adults and families. My clinical interests include anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, relational issues, and stress management. I also work with children and adolescents who experience symptoms of ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and behavioral issues.

Clinical Approach:

I believe in meeting clients where they are at and building a therapeutic relationship to help guide the direction of therapy. I use various clinical approaches to fit the needs and goals of each client. I predominately utilize Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy to help clients achieve their identified goals on their therapeutic journey.


My personal interests include travel, musical theatre, movies, reading and spending time with family and friends.
