Meet Melissa

My name is Melissa Webb and I grew up in church. Attended every Sunday, sang in the choir, active in the youth department and attended every church event. This has continued to this very day. My love of God and His people has drawn me to learn more about the human brain and behavior. After becoming a therapist, I would incorporate Christian teachings to treatment.  Those clients looked forward to therapy.

Session after session we would talk about their problem, how to cope and Christianity. Some sessions would even turn into Bible study. But I noticed something about each client. Not only did I see an improvement in the client’s mental state but I also saw growth and steadfastness in their spirituality. Psychology is a powerful tool by itself but adding that to the healing power of Jesus Christ made it more meaningful. Those sessions brought me to a powerful conclusion, that Christianity and psychology can live together, harmoniously, to help strengthen hurting individuals.
