Melanie Scheer understands the struggles and fears that come with opening up to a therapist. As your mental health provider, she will work to gain your trust and confidence in supporting your mental health needs.
No One is Immune to Mental Health Challenges
Melanie is on a personal mission to break the stigma around mental health. No one is immune to mental health concerns and no one should feel like they need to be. Everyone has the potential to cultivate change and growth in their life.
Often times, those that have devoted their careers to supporting and protecting others feel like they have no place to turn for help themselves. Melanie has a passion for working with first responders, 911 dispatchers, nurses, and veterans.
A Little Humor Goes a Long Way
When you meet Melanie, you will find her to be a very warm empathetic person. She loves to utilize humor (where appropriate) in her counseling sessions. Most importantly, she wants to create a space for her clients to be their authentic selves while also working towards change in their life. Each person already has tools within themselves to elicit change and growth! Her role is to help you tap into those strengths!
Break Out of Your Shell
As mentioned earlier, it can be scary to go to therapy, let alone be vulnerable. However, if you take those first steps, you may realize how strong you truly are. Melanie has been witness to many individuals breaking out of their shells and becoming confident in their abilities to change their lives. You can turn hopelessness into joyfulness and self-doubt into positive self-esteem and self-confidence through therapy.
Let’s Hear it for the Nerds!
Melanie describes herself and her husband as “huge nerds.” They enjoy attending Comic-Con whenever possible. She loves to make people laugh — often with the punniest of puns. If you would like help navigating your mental health with a side of laughter, please reach out to request an appointment with Melanie at our Davenport Clinic.
