Melissa Oden (She/her)

Accepting Clients

My name is Melissa, I am a limited licensed therapist, and I received my master’s degree in social work from the University of Michigan.

Licensed Master of Social Work in New Baltimore, MI


About My Clients

I take a strengths-based, client-centered approach to counseling individuals. I believe each client has within them the tremendous potential for growth with the support, skill set, and insight gained from the collaborative, therapeutic relationship. I often incorporate various techniques and coping skills to best suit the client and their needs. As an individual who has generalized anxiety disorder, I understand the daily struggle and I want you to know that you are not alone!

My Background and Approach

I have a focus and interest in working with adult individuals on anxiety disorders, depression, grief/loss, self-esteem and personal growth, social/communication skills, women’s concerns and relationship issues. It is rewarding and empowering for my clients to witness the changes that come from talk therapy! Clients report a difference in their thinking patterns and perspective while overcoming challenges in a safe, supportive environment. Whether you are new to therapy or have had mental health services in the past, I would love to join you on your journey of healing! Taking the first step can feel overwhelming, I encourage you to be proud of yourself for actively pursuing the thought of therapy, many great things can start with just a thought! I invite you to reach out when you feel ready!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in treating every client as an individual with respect and dignity to where you are at in your current situation. I value individuality, and accept that we are all different and grow at our own pace.
