All Kinds of News for December 05, 2018
Melissa J. Villodas, LPC, NCC is returning to SUWS after welcoming her baby Atlas in September 2019. While she has thoroughly enjoyed this time to focus completely on him, she now states, “I’m excited to get back in the woods to continue supporting the healing, change, and growth with my Luna ladies.”
Luna is the treatment group at SUWS of the Carolinas, a wilderness therapy program, that focuses on adolescent females who find themselves overwhelmed by trauma, learning differences, family conflict, or maladaptive attachments. Melissa uses a variety of modalities, including EMDR, to help the ladies find their inner capabilities to move through life’s suffering. Erica Thiessen, Clinical Director and proud “Auntie,” appreciates having Melissa on the treatment team because of her hard work, optimistic spirit, and compassionate care for her clients.
