Michelle Melville, MHC-LP

I hold Bachelor’s in Psychology and Sociology from Bucknell University and a Master’s of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Auburn University. During my time at Bucknell I was a member of the women’s lacrosse team and completed in the Patriot League at the division I level. While I attended Auburn University, I worked in the athletic department on the Student Athlete Academic Support staff for the Swim and Drive, Equestrian, and Football teams. In addition, I completed my clinical internship at Lee County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center during my time at Auburn, where I gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise to help you overcome obstacles. I recognize the experiences of individuals and provide tailored strategies to help balance academics, athletics, and personal well-being.

Being a student-athlete in college comes with pressure, stress, and anxiety. If you’re a young adult navigating life, academics, or athletics, I understand your unique challenges. I offer counseling services to adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, sports performance, self-esteem, stress and burnout.

It is important to look at the whole individual and address all stressors in order to ensure optimal performance in all areas of life. I am very active and engaged in my therapeutic style, while working to collaborate with my clients to build rapport and set therapeutic goals. In order to best serve my clients, I utilize both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy, while integrative aspects of Person-Centered Therapy. I hold a strong belief in the benefits of self-care, which I discuss and develop with each client.

Specializing in counseling current or recently retired college athletes ages 18 and above, I provide a safe space for self-discovery and resilience-building. Don’t let challenges hold you back; I am here to meet you where you are and empower you to get where you’d like to be.
