Melissa Anderson

LPC-Associate, CSAT Candidate

I love people.  I love to see them succeed and to cheer them on when they do.  I love to offer encouragement or lend a listening ear when times are tough.  I love to help others find their strength and worth when life becomes overwhelming.  As a counselor, I believe I have a unique opportunity to show my clients compassion and understanding as they walk through their personal journeys.  I believe allowing people to feel truly seen, heard and understood in the innermost spaces of their lives is one of the greatest gifts I can give them.  As a follower of Jesus, I believe I am called to help others in this way and am committed to doing so.  It is an honor to walk alongside my clients during their difficult times and offer them the support they seek.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Texas under the supervision of C. Huston McComb, Jr., as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor.  Additionally, I am a CSAT Candidate, which means that I am working toward becoming a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. Using Cognitive Behavioral and Person-Centered approaches, among others, I tailor each client’s treatment specifically to meet his or her needs.  I believe therapy should be a collaborative effort between therapist and client to be most effective.  I enjoy counseling from a biblical perspective but respect every individual’s right to his or her own belief system.  As such, Christian counseling is available upon request from the client.

Education and Background

I received my undergraduate degree from Oklahoma Christian University, my MBA from Trident University International, and my MA in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.  My graduate level internship provided me with a wide variety of experience working with adults, adolescents, couples, and groups.  While I am able to help with a breadth of issues, I am especially passionate about helping those who struggle with depression, anxiety, and mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder.  

I am happily married to my husband of twenty-four years.  We have three children, ages 22, 20, and 14.  In my spare time, I love to sing with the worship team at my church and spend time with family and friends.
