Melinda Cantu, LCSW-S

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Supervisor (LCSW-S).  I received my Bachelors of Social Work from Texas Woman’s University and my Master of Science in Social Work from The University of Texas at Arlington.

 

I have worked with diverse populations and a wide range of ages to deliver various levels of care for over 20 years.  I have experience working with children, adults and groups in a variety of therapeutic settings ranging from the school setting, inpatient and outpatient facilities as well as area agencies.

 

My theoretical approach is to utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy in an integrative and eclectic approach personalized to meet the individual needs of my clients. My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, anger management issues, school difficulties, parenting education and domestic violence.

 

I provide a safe and supportive environment by guiding, educating and encouraging growth. By using a holistic approach to counseling, we will work together to achieve positive changes and wellness.
