Melissa Beaulieu, MHC
Hi! I’m so glad you are here because it means you are on a path toward self betterment . I would love to assist you with that. While working together we will discuss what you believe has brought you to therapy and —at your own pace— discuss any not-so-obvious factors that may be relevant to your journey.
My name is Melissa Beaulieu and I love partnering with clients who struggle with relationships, communication difficulties, challenges with managing anxiety, self-esteem issues, trust issues, lack of assertiveness, challenging family dynamics and clients who love to learn about themselves and psychology in general. I have a holistic approach to therapy, which basically means that I look at the multiple pieces of your life to help support your healing. That includes providing education on a certain topic and using interventions from various schools of psychology. I like to incorporate mindfulness, breathing exercises, homework, role-play, communication skills training, bibliotherapy, and other interventions that best suit my clients.
I graduated from Wake forest, located in North Carolina, with a Masters in Experimental Psychology. That foundation has given me a multifaceted understanding of the many Psychology theories I like to use. I also have a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from FAU, which has given me hands-on and academic training to be a therapist. I continuously enroll in trainings in order to polish my skills as well.
I have always enjoyed working with underserved populations in the social services field. I have experienced working with families of children in foster care while working as Child Welfare case manager. I have also worked at a psychiatric hospital for over two years. Those experiences have shown me the importance of client advocacy and education. I have also interned at a dual diagnosis treatment center and at a private practice.
In my spare time I love to read novels, psychology books and journals, exercise, connect with my family and friends, go to the beach and I love to travel. Culturally I am of Caribbean descent, and I speak three languages fluently–English, French and Creole. This supports my ability to connect with clients who have a multicultural background.
I look forward to supporting you!
