Finley Counseling, LLC
Counselor, Therapist


Hello! I am Melissa Finley, a person-centered, trauma informed therapist who specializes in treating clients with anxiety and shame. My first experience with the therapeutic process was when I went to my own therapist at 21 years old, and my life shifted significantly due to that relationship. After spending the first part of my career in schools, I decided that I wanted to dive deeper into the study of the mind and body connection and learn everything I could about how this connection impacts our relationships, habits, and choices. I continue to be in awe of this connection and I am excited to share this process with you!

How Do You Change Lives?

I take a compassionate, relational approach, rooted in authenticity to ensure that sessions are tailored to your individual needs. My therapeutic approach is trauma informed, relational, and experiential. I enjoy working with clients long-term, as well, and work well with those clients that are looking for a deep transformation. My use of somatic experiencing throughout my practice will allow you the space to become more connected with your inner, wise self. With compassion, insight, and expertise, I will assess the various issues and their layers as I provide interventions that are both supportive and challenging.

Through our work together, my clients have found that they have more fulfilling relationships, and they feel more grounded and centered in their day-to-day lives. They also have more acceptance around who they are, finding more joy in the present moment, and sleeping better at night. I will support you so that you can get to know yourself in a new, loving way.
