We worked with Jeanine for approximately two years and her honest, direct approach along with HUGE patience helped us tremendously. Jeanine is straightforward and will be very clear with you - you have to WANT to make changes and with that, she will give her her caring but direct recommendations and it's on YOU to make it happen. Coming from one of the most stubborn people on the planet, her patience is unending while at the same time, she will continue to push you -- I can not recommend Jeanine highly enough!

ms Jeanine Mele is a great counselor! I suffer from anxiety and depression issues and had self-harm habits when I began my sessions. she's diligent and does everything she can to help you get better. it's almost been a year and I can say that I have drastically improved. she gives great coping strategies and listens to everything. no problem is too small, she treats them with importance and helps in any way possible. I've appreciated her service and will definitely visit for future needs. thank you ms mele!!

Mele is awesome! She tells it like it is. If you want some fluff therapist like the last reviewer then maybe she isn't right for you. If you want to get down to the nitty gritty and get some real answers and help she is it! She gets booked full because she is darn good. She gave me the truth no holds barre and the additional resources to help. After 4 months I no longer needed her or therapy. She doesn't keep you hanging on to get money, her intent is to get you healthy. Bottom line. I love her!!! Thanks Mele!

USE CAUTION if you suffer from severe or moderate social anxiety! I chose her from all the positive reviews on here. I wanted to like her and felt optimistic going in, but much much worse when I left. The first thing she pointed out when I sat down was how nervous I looked. This! Is NOT helpful. She then went over the 'rules' and spent a majority of the session talking about how 'busy' she is (the importance of canceling in advance etc etc). She was strict, cold, and it was noticeable that this was a job for her. Her no-nonsense approach may work well for other 'issues' but if you are at a sensitive point, I would advise you look elsewhere. I did not feel as though she cared or was compassionate at all. Even when I went to leave, I had to extend my hand for a handshake as she was closing the door! That really struck me as cold and odd. Very happy now that I have a found a therapist that works for people like me! Someone who is patient, compassionate, and understands these issues. Not surprised there aren't more reviews like mine, it has taken me a while to get the courage to write this up (since I'm much better now).

I had just been through a divorce and felt like my life was falling apart. Jeanine gave me the tools to become the person I admired. She also helped me to stop repeating the same patterns that set me up for failure. It is about being able to work on yourself so that you can better help those around you and enjoy life and this therapist has plenty of tools to help you get there.

Jeanine is incredibly talented! I have worked with Jeanine in both individual counseling sessions as well as couples therapy sessions. She is amazing. Very down to earth but also very professional! Jeanine has helped me in dealing with anxiety and related symptoms. Very perceptive and is able to quickly assess the situation and give practical advice. Would recommend Jeanine very highly! :)

CBT used by Jeanine worked well for me. I never thought I'd need a therapist for any length of time, but I can report with confidence I am a better, more stable, and confident man having been able to talk through some relationship issues with Jeanine. Life is not easy, but YOU have a choice how you deal with life's challenges. Exercising that choice CAN make you stronger. I'd recommend this therapist to people willing to do their part to change their situation, or knowing you cannot "change" others to tolerate their relationship situation in a healthy and stable manner.

I have been working with Jeanine Mele since November of 2010 for anxiety and OCD. Working with her was the best decision I could have made for myself. She gets a connection with her clients and truly cares about their needs. She has helped me so much in getting past my OCD issues. I have made strides that i never thought in a million years would ever happen, and it is all with the help of Mele Counseling. I would highly recommend Jeanine Mele for any issue.

Jeanine Mele is by far the best in town. Never a cancelled appointment, never running late, and she's truly helped me in my journey. I'd recommend her to anyone (and have).

Dr. Mele's hypnosis has helped me with severe insomnia during an extremely difficult time. I would highly recommend seeing her if you need a speedy resolution to a difficult issue. Her approach and straightforwardness makes treatment very effective.

Dr. Mele Helped me with a tough life transition. She was very patient in walking me through ways to overcome my stress and anxiety. If you are in emotional turmoil I recommend you talk to Dr. Mele.

Dr. Mele is gifted and talented therapist. She is genuine and caring and at the same time direct and no nonsense and doesn't waste your time. I went to Dr. Mele because I was not dealing with the stress in my life very well. I would clench my teeth so hard while sleeping at night that I would awake with a migraine and neck aches. I had tried everything I could think of to stop. I thought hypnosis may help and knew she used hypnotherapy in her treatment. (She had helped my 18 year old daughter previously and used some self-hypnosis with her). It was a very positive experience, and I feel that Dr. Mele definitely helped me. I no longer wake up with migraines and neck aches. I continue to use self-hypnosis a couple times a week and I feel happier, in control and even more confident. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.

After my first session with Jeanine, I felt comfortable & at ease. She helped me thru an extremely difficult time in my life, but I always left her office with hope & a better solution to cope & prevail. My teenage daughter also benefits from Jeanine's expertise & ability to communicate with different age levels & issues. She has a high level of professionalism, yet remains down to earth. I have recommended her to friends who are extremely appreciative. I have a better understanding of myself & life's situations & relationships because of Mele Counseling.

I have been going to counseling for over a year now with Jeanine. She is very passionate about her job and helping you to understand things on your own. She tells it like it is rather than what you want to hear. I think this is an outstanding trait that really helped me. I have referred her to my family members & others and will continue to do so. Highly Recommend!!!!
