“Progress, not perfection!” – Bill Phillips

Melissa Renner, LPC-S
Licensed Professional Counselor
Clinical Supervisor

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Barton College in Wilson, North Carolina. I then earned two Master’s Degrees in Community Counseling and Forensic Psychology. I obtained my license as a Professional Counselor in 2009.

I specialize in depression, anxiety and sexual issues. I prefer to work with adults and teenagers and feel that I build rapport easily.   I enjoy working with couples.

My style is more direct and action oriented, utilizing Cognitive Behavioral therapy to look at thoughts and how they impact one’s feelings and behaviors. I help to promote change in others and help them to become the best versions of themselves through compassionate confrontation and accountability.
