My name is Melissa Griffing and I am a licensed therapist. Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to work with kids and families. I distinctly remember a conversation with my mom when I was about 16, volunteering at a Saturday child-care program. I remember saying, “These kids are so great, and these parents care so much, everyone just needs a little help.” Little did I know that statement would lead me down a path to helping families become the best version of themselves.
In 2021 I started WellNest Counseling. I believe that every family is unique and has their own strengths. I am passionate about parenting and helping families become the best version of themselves. As the WellNest team grows, I aspire to be able to support the family no matter what the needs are. Our goal is to provide quality services to families in need of parent support, individual counseling, play therapy, family therapy, and/or other counseling services.
WellNest Counseling focuses on the needs of the family located in Dallas, Tx. We offer individual, group, adolescent, and child therapy sessions. We utilize many approaches included Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Play Therapy, and Activity therapy. We also provide parent support and perinatal therapy as well.
WellNest counseling is passionate about service. We believe relationship is the most important factor when seeking counseling services. We strive to always do the best for our clients, even if that means the right fit is not us. Our clinicians are highly trained and continue their education regularly. At WellNest, you will find a team of people who care about you!
