Melissa McGlothren

Hello! My name is Melissa McGlothren, MSW, LCSW and owner of Bloom Counseling. I am so glad that you have found your way to this site. If you are considering the possibility of change or are ready for change, then you are in the right place. First, I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am a two time graduate of Louisiana State University, receiving my undergraduate degree in 2005 and Masters Degree in Social Work in 2007. I received my LCSW in 2011 and have worked in various settings including hospitals, home health care, hospice, and mental health settings. I have served Veterans as well as many other members of the community. I have a passion for expanding my knowledge in the treatment of trauma and perinatal mental health and have completed the following trainings to enhance and improve my clinical skills:

● Trauma Conscious Yoga Method (2019)
● Advanced Perinatal Mental Health Psychotherapy Training (2020)
● EMDR Basic Training (2021)
● Somatic Embodiment and Regulation Strategies (2022)
● Intro to Dissociation and Parts with EMDR (2022)


My primary goal as a therapist is to provide a space that promotes feelings of safety and connection as I believe that this is the foundation for healing. My hope is that Bloom Counseling becomes a space for you to find healing, growth, and renewal.

A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer, so you can heal yourself."
