         Ms. Irene Christin, LGPC, NCC (Mental Health Therapist)

I work with individual clients of all ages, families, and couples.  I offer help with managing high level of stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions.  

In my practice, I use an integrative approach that includes several evidence-based techniques. The foundation of my method is empathic understanding and unconditional positive regard. I am truly convinced that every person has a potential to grow and achieve positive life change.

There is time in life when you no longer can handle the problem alone. It is probably the time to seek professional help. We can work on it together and find the best possible solution for you and your loved ones.

         Mr. Darin Ford (MFT Student Intern)

After 20 years of mentoring, spiritual counseling and advising families, couples, singles and young adults, I am currently working towards completing my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I practice under the clinical supervision of a MD board approved Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapy Supervisor. I believe humans are able to overcome problems and flourish when they are in a relationship with someone who is dedicated to hearing their story, walking with them and bringing the best of them into view. My goal is to assist clients on the road to a more desirable experience of themselves and life. I provide feedback and guidance in a positive and solution-oriented environment and use a varied therapeutic process tailored to the needs of the client. I look forward to joining you on your journey towards positive change. Together we will succeed.


     Ms. Elizabeth Melchione, MA, NCC, LGPC (Mental Health Therapist)

As a counselor, I have dedicated my education and training to assisting military, police & first responders, as well as adolescents, young adults and adults to work through many of life’s obstacles. I have experience in crisis, domestic and interpersonal violence, challenging or unfulfilling relationships, trauma, anxiety, depression, adjustment, ADHD/ADD, as well as the normal ups and downs that life tends to bring us through. I meet each client with a warm, empathic, and nonjudgmental space for them to explore themselves and what they’re experiencing to find the best solutions. 

I aim to see the world from everyone's unique lens within the framework of their cultural context, and utilize a holistic perspective that encompasses the entire person - body, mind and spirit. My approach is strengths based, collaborative in nature and individualized to each client, working from attachment based, psychodynamic & emotion focused perspectives.  I work to help clients create the lives they crave through understanding, awareness and self-acceptance, resulting in healthier, happier selves and more sustainable relationships so they can move through their worlds with peace and comfort.
