Melanie Jones, MA, LPC
I have worked successfully with a myriad of individuals and couples who have any form of gender identity issues for over 15 years. For the past few years, in addition to adults, I have helped children and teens who are confused about their gender preference. I use clinical hypnotherapy for anyone with anxiety or stress with amazing positive results in a relatively short period of time. Another group that has had tremendous improvement in realizing their goals are individuals with weight issues who are ready for clinical hypnotherapy rather that diets, pills or surgery.
