Melissa S. Lloyd, LCASA, LCSWA, MSW
Good day to you. My name is Melissa S Lloyd, and I am credential as a LCASA Licensed Addiction Specialist Associate and LCSWA Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate leveled clinician. I was born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY and then relocated to the Raleigh, NC area eight years ago due to my significant other’s position within the Government. I obtained my MSW from University of Buffalo in 2013, right after I completed my bachelor’s degree in social work at Buffalo State College in 2010.
I have experience in the following counseling methods; Cognitive Behavior Therapy CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, Crisis Inventions, Dialectical behavior therapy DBT, Motivational interviewing, Psychosocial assessments, Case Management and Mindfulness & stress resiliency. I am accepting new clients offering Wednesday evening appointments from 4 to 7p virtually. Friday all day until 6p at the Holly Springs location. Some availability on Saturday afternoons virtually.
My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for clients to enhance the most important relationship they have, the one with themselves. I believe the relationship between you and your therapist is fundamental to the therapeutic process. I focus on concepts of trust and creating a safe environment, so you feel free to process thoughts, develop healthy coping skills, and focus on reducing, managing, and eliminating symptoms. I emphasize open and honest communication while maintaining a non-judgmental approach throughout treatment.
I enjoy working with adolescents 12-18, young adults and adults. I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient therapy settings as well as community-based services. I have a particular interest in supporting adolescents and adults facing concerns with self-harm, identity, emotional dysregulation, and life transitions (college, new parenthood, etc.) Thanks for your time.
