Melina Bridges, ASHEVILLE CHILD & TEEN THERAPIST, uses creative therapies to help young people discover their self-worth and potential.
In an inviting and supportive space, I offer creative pathways for both verbal and non-verbal expression. Such a container provides the safety and acceptance your child, teen or young adult needs to uncover deep feelings, heal any difficulties standing in the way, and to transition through each stage of their development to realize his or her authentic hopes, desires, and dreams.
I offer you my experience and wisdom from decades of working with clients from all walks of life. From working predominantly in the public schools as a child development specialist and school counselor, I specialize in child and teen therapy. But, I also offer an inclusive and nurturing therapeutic experience, welcoming all people, no matter what stage of life you may be in.
The goal of counseling is to witness your child moving from his or her childhood, through the teen years, and on to young adulthood living a more happy, purposeful and authentic life.
