Melody King

LCSW

 

Melody King is trained in traditional therapies as well as alternative/natural options. She has worked with adults, teens/children, and families for several years as an outpatient therapist. Melody advocates thinking “outside the box.” Her belief is that all factors including physical issues contribute to a client’s symptoms and should be considered as part of the treatment plan. Melody has a brain-based perspective in looking at mood, behavior, and personality issues. Trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting and Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Melody has found these methods effective to quickly resolve trauma and to provide help for many other issues when talk therapy is not enough. Clients are enabled to think of the disturbing event without experiencing extreme emotional upset..
