About Melva Hartzog's service

I believe in incorporating an integrative, holistic approach to wellness, acknowledging the role of mind, body, and spirit in the healing process. Healing is also promoted through the development of psychosocial areas of life: career, emotional, social, and interpersonal. Holistic healing embraces body, mind, and spirit, and includes making sense of life from social, environmental, interpersonal, religious, and spiritual perspectives. I believe and uphold that all people are created with the purpose to live their lives to the fullest free from religious, racial, gender, or sexual biases. My therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), including Christian- and spiritually-integrated CBT. I am a multicultural competent counselor. As a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master of Divinity degree, I understand the need for some individuals to seek Christian counseling for a variety of issues. Sometimes there is a crisis of faith, other times there is a need to understand Biblical principles in relation to any issues or struggles. There are other times when a spiritual crisis or need occurs and a person may need to make sense of a situation from a spiritual perspective. I understand that both religion and spirituality are integral in treating the whole person. I understand that therapy is challenging for many people. Therefore, I importance of meeting individuals where they are….without judgment. My goal is to provide a non-judgmental, warm, safe, and healing environment. I believe that while “The past cannot be changed, the future is yet in your power.”
