Individual Therapy

Individual therapy sessions are conducted with one individual in the session. My primary focus is working with individuals that have food, body image, and weight issues that manifest themselves as an eating disorder, disordered eating, or chronic dieting. In the course of this work, other areas such as depression, anxiety, self harm, past trauma, and spirituality issues are addressed in sessions. I work with adolescent boys and girls ages 13-18 and adult women. Part of individual therapy for adolescents includes one or both parents. A portion of each session will be spent with parents in addition to meeting individually with your adolescent. If appropriate, I meet with parents every few sessions instead of every session. Although maintaining confidentiality with adolescents is important, I believe strongly that parents must be involved in the therapeutic process.

Scheduling

All appointments must be scheduled, please contact me via phone call 903-805-0531 or email melodye@faithfoodandfreedom.com to set up the initial session.
Once we decide on a day and time, I’ll send you a link to my secure, HIPAA compliant system where you will be able to access your account. This will allow you to complete an in-depth questionnaire that I’ll review before our intake appointment, you will complete paperwork and consents, store a credit and have access to request scheduling for future appointments. Sessions may occur in office or online if you are a resident of Texas.

Intake Assessment
$150 90 min session

After you have made the first phone call, we will meet for a 90 minute intake session. This session will give us plenty of time to begin getting acquainted with each other, review you or your child’s history, determine your goals for therapy, and review our working relationship. The intake assessment for adolescent clients will include only parents.

Counseling Sessions

$100/ 50 minute session
Typical counseling sessions last 50 minutes in length, on a weekly or biweekly basis. I recommend weekly appointments to start as it helps build the therapeutic relationship.

$150 / 90 min session
Some people choose to continue scheduling 90 minute sessions instead of 50 minute sessions. I recommend 90 minute sessions for family and couple’s work.

If you cannot make your scheduled appointment for any reason, please contact me with 24 hour notice so I do not have to charge you the session fee. You may contact me via a phone call, email, or text message. Thank you!
