About Melanie Preston, LPC, LMHC
Melanie Preston is Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Georgia and Indiana. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, and her Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from William Carey University.
Melanie is known as “The Relationship Architect” and works with couples and individuals looking to redesign and restructure their relationships. She also works with organizations looking to provide more inclusivity within the workplace. Mel believes the best version of self is developed through the intentional prioritizing of both physical and emotional wellness. Additionally, Mel is a licensed minister and believes that spirituality and psychotherapy can coexist without being mutually exclusive.
Having spent the first 10 years of her career working in secondary school systems in high-poverty areas, Mel has always had a passion for the family unit. Much of her work continues to revolve around creating healthy relationships within the family structure, as well as the relationships outside the home that contribute to overall total wellness.
Mel has been featured as a public speaker and workshop facilitator for both local and national organizations, in addition to post-secondary institutions. Churches often seek her for speaking and teaching events due to her ability to fuse spirituality and psychology. Additionally, she’s been featured on television, radio, and other social media platforms to share her knowledge and expertise in relationships and effective communication.
Mel’s latest accomplishment has been the release of the “Self-Love & Affirmation Journal: A Therapist-Guided Adventure”. The journal is aimed to walk women and girls through the process of learning and applying self-love.
Mel is academically trained as a culturally competent and trauma-informed mental health clinician. She holds additional training in integrative behavioral health, which involves the collaboration of physicians and mental health therapists for the holistic care of clients. Mel holds an M.S. in counseling psychology from William Carey University and an M.S. in educational leadership from Western Governors University.
Melanie’s theoretical orientation is a fusion of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. She is also a Certified Prepare-Enrich Facilitator and Trainer. Melanie is well-versed in topics related to culture, trauma, and the integration of spirituality and psychology. She is passionate about supporting couples in finding their way back to one another and witnessing their growth as they learn to connect in authentic and intimate ways.
