Who am I?
Hi! My name is Melissa Barton, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor – Supervisor (LPC-S). I’ve actually been a licensed therapist since 2007 (a really long time, I know!) and a supervisor since 2012. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University in 2004, Gig ‘Em! Additionally, I received my Masters degree from The University of Houston – Clear Lake in Clinical Psychology in 2007.
The greater Houston area is where I have served for as long as I can remember, but Katy has long been my home-base when it comes to providing counseling services. Recently, Fulshear has become another location for practice as well. Since I am a supervisor, not only do I provide counseling to those who seek out my services, I also supervise License Professional Counselor – Associates and Practicum Students at the Counseling Center at Cinco Ranch. Through supervision and consultation, I ensure that my supervisees are providing high level care to their clients. Another benefit to this is that they receive the training and guidance as necessary to gain knowledge, experience, and application of ethical principles. Please check out my current Supervisees here.
Services I Provide:
As mentioned earlier, I have been a therapist for a pretty long time. Basically, that means I have had the privilege of getting to work with multiple populations and a variety of issues throughout my career. Additionally, I enjoy assisting individuals from multiple age ranges, different cultural backgrounds, and those coming in with various concerns in their life such as:
- Adolescents facing any of these problems:
- Depression & Anxiety
- Low Self-esteem
- Lack of social skills & communication
- Non-suicidal Self Injury
- Behavioral issues
- Life transitions
- Families of Teens
- Young adults
- Women’s Issues
- Boundary Issues
- Relationship Issues
- Substance Use/ Codependency
Every client I see is unique in their own way. So, I like to incorporate multiple therapeutic approaches to ensure that every client’s needs are being met. Ultimately, therapy is a collaborative effort that requires involvement from the client and therapist. There are some of the approaches I utilize:
- Cognitive-behavioral Therapy
- Solution-focused Counseling
- Structural Family Therapy
- Family Systems Therapy
