About Me

Hello and welcome! Thank you for taking a few moments to read about me. My name is Melissa Ortiz and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults from a variety of backgrounds and provide individual, family and group counseling. My treatment approach is client centered. I strive to provide genuineness, unconditional positive regard and empathy to all clients as they process their thoughts and feelings. I am very warm and caring and find that building a trusting relationship between client and counselor is truly the foundation of therapeutic success. I believe it is important to provide accessible mental health services because everyone has the right to quality help. With my knowledge and experience as a mental health professional, we can work to safely address your concerns so you can live your best life. Whether you work with me or another therapist, I truly hope you find the help you are looking for.
