Melissa Porembiak-Intern

Christina Schlenker – MA, LPC, NCC

My counseling approach involves a combination of person-centered, mindfulness, and solution-focused counseling. This integrated approach balances self-awareness with a genuine and empathic relationship with the client. I work collaboratively with clients to identify changes or choices they can make to achieve their clinical and academic goals while minimizing emotional and behavioral conflicts. My area of expertise is working with clients between the ages of 5 and 18. I have extensive experience in collaborating with schools and coordinating support between both settings. Additionally, I have experience working with adults, especially those who are navigating life transitions, parenting, relationships, and career exploration. Life can be challenging to navigate. I am here to support clients in achieving their goals and understanding the thought processes that may be holding them back.
