Hello

Meet Gilbertte (Melissa) Berthier, MSW

Registered Clinical Social Work Intern

Life may seem like it is hard to handle at times, but what if you could choose your hard? Too often we are faced with challenges that are either out of our control or an unexpected cycle that we cannot seem to shake. We are truly the experts of our lives. It is our experiences that make us the fighters we are today. Feelings of overwhelmedness, stress, or frustration may often feel like the norm. But it does not have to be. You will be provided with a space that is safe and nonjudgemental, as we work towards prioritizing your needs. A space to just be you and a therapist who is ready to provide the support you need.

 

Registered Clinical Social Worker Intern looking to meet you exactly where you are. I have a diverse background with clinical knowledge in both outpatient and school settings; as well as, community outreach. I am experienced in working with individuals, couples, and families in crisis. I utilize evidence-based treatments to address symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, emotional distress, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, and more. 

Sometimes it is hard to see the path ahead when you can barely see your next step. Let that be the step we take on your new journey to healing. Whatever challenges you’re experiencing may have knocked you down, but it will not knock you out. There is no such thing as the perfect person, just a better version of who you were yesterday, today. There is no right or wrong way, just simply come as you are.
