Christian Counselor Melissa Armbruster

Dear Friends, 

I have been working with families for over 40 years in one capacity or another. Much of my earlier work centered around children, parenting struggles and family stability. I have grieved over the state of marriage in our country and have invested in providing counseling for marriages through all seasons of life.  I specialize in some of the more profound issues that challenge couples and families like anxiety, depression, sexual addiction, sexual abuse, trauma, blended families, and LGBTQ struggles. I have found that when it hurts too much to stay the same, people are motivated to change. I can help with that!
