Melanie Treuhaft, QMHP
Supervised by Breanna Herock, LPC, ACS
***Please note that Melanie is taking new clients at this time.
Melanie is a student at Antioch University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. She received her Masters in painting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 and her Bachelors in philosophy from the University of Chicago in 2010.
She has a human centered and trauma focused approach to therapy and aims to meet each client where they are at, honoring their unique needs and collaborating to create individualized treatment plans. She knows that each client navigates a variety of oppressive systems and needs space to bring their specific perspectives and identities into the therapeutic relationship. Melanie is curious and eager to fine tune the skills she has learned in her graduate studies. She is excited to begin applying theoretical frameworks such as CBT and ACT while continuing to explore other modalities. She works with individuals facing anxiety, depression, grief and loss, questions around identity, and relationship issues.
Melanie has a background in visual arts, music, and theater. She welcomes clients for whom creativity is central to their personal and spiritual identity. She sees counseling as a creative process in which new realizations and thought patterns can occur through an exchange of ideas and emotions. In her down time, if not playing music or painting, she likes cooking, projecting movies on the wall, reading, and spending time with friends.
