Picturing myself being anything other than a therapist is one definition of futility. Growing up on three different continents only increased my love for helping others. In fact, I often think I was a therapist before I got the degree.

After graduating from high school in Brazil I moved to Texas where I completed my Master of Arts in Psychology at Hardin-Simmons University. Since then I have had the privilege to work with various populations in various settings, with clients as young as one and a half, to children who thought their only way to survive was through violence. I have helped others in foster and adoption agencies, treatment centers, schools and hospitals.

I have worked to empower families and individuals overcome personal obstacles for over fifteen years. I am excited about helping you discover what’s keeping you stuck, helping you find hope and providing balance in today’s hectic world.  My therapies include cognitive-behavioral, family systems and dialectical behavioral therapy. I live in the Keller area with my family. I love to read and do Sudoku. I enjoy going to the beach; cannot surf, or do anything that resembles surfing. My son keeps me on my toes, and loves winning at Hungry, Hungry Hippo.

I am excited to meet you and am honored to be working with you through this journey.

Hi!  My name is Eronia Melesse, and I believe that constructive therapy is a great passage to a prosperous solution.

I efficiently completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Texas Christian University. After graduation, I worked for 2 non-profit organizations in the Virginia area and undeniably realized my calling in the mental health field.  I made up my mind to pursue my Master’s degree and recently completed my education in Licensed Professional Counseling at Texas Wesleyan University. Based on the honors I received, my reputation amongst my educators, and my passion for promoting growth, I am looking forward to a hopeful and encouraging future full of meaningful work in the area I love.
In addition to my thorough educational experience, I most recently spent 2 years working in the Career Services department at Wesleyan. I am particularly skilled at aiding those transitioning into college and/or a new job, as well as those looking to discover their abilities and skills in their professional lives. I am trained in the interpretation and delivery of reputable personality tests such as the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers-Briggs.
I currently work as the Assistant to the Dean of Education, a position that has allowed me to further develop skills in assisting others with a positive, goal-oriented perspective. I genuinely appreciate the opportunity to help people of all backgrounds and cultures, something I am proud of and I will continue to do throughout my counseling career.
