Melissa Yardley, ACMHC

I believe that most people have inside of them the knowledge of what they need to do to feel better, but are lacking the knowledge, skills, or tools they need to get there. My role as the therapist is to give you the safety to fully feel all of your feelings, the space to express your needs and wants, and the opportunity to learn and test out new skills and techniques. I believe in the healing power of fun, laughter, and creative expression, and use these as part of my evidence-based practice.

I help people of all ages, and backgrounds, but specialize in anxiety, depression, body-focused repetitive behaviors, grief, life stress, and family relationship issues.

I have worked in the mental health field for the past seven years in various roles. I have a Master of Education in Psychology – School Counseling from Utah State University as well as a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions.
