About Us

Melanie Short

Since 2008, I’ve worked in the field of mental health and addiction.  Throughout this time, I’ve worked with adolescents, individual adults, and families.  I am all about empowerment and truly enjoy helping people figure out how to thrive in their lives.  Being a Licensed Clinical Social Worker helps me to look at a whole situation from all angles.  I tend to have a solution focused approach and will use a variety of strategies depending on the situation or presenting complaint.  Trained in EMDR, I routinely work with individual clients to resolve trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, life transitions or decision making, depression, and anxiety.

Being the daughter of an alcoholic, who got into recovery when I was very young, I have also gravitated toward working with family members who have addicted loved ones.  As a result, I became a Love First Certified Clinical Interventionist.  Intervention can be the key to helping people with any self-destructive behavior including drug addiction, alcoholism, compulsive gambling, sex, internet, shopping, or eating disorders. I have a passion for helping families develop a game plan for approaching their loved one and coping with the stresses of an addiction.  I help families take action, rather than wait for their loved one’s addiction to get worse.

What happens after substance abuse treatment ends? It is common that standard treatment ends, a lot of unresolved issues still need to be addressed. Building trust, addressing and resolving resentments, support for family members, addressing the needs of the children and establishing new expectations can be difficult without ongoing support. How do you handle a relapse or feeling guarded?  Couples begin to identify underlying issues that come to the surface after beginning on the path of sobriety.

Getting sober is the start but it’s not the end. After 15 years of experience working with families, adolescents, women, and people experiencing trauma, I have developed a passion for making sure that recovery equals quality of life for everyone involved in the recovery process.

I provide substance abuse evaluations, individual and couple’s therapy, group workshops addressing a variety of topics, and am EMDR trained to help process the trauma/anxiety/and cravings.


Liza Jarrett

I am an Art Therapist and Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate. I enjoy working with individuals suffering from addiction, poor coping skills, co-dependency, low self-esteem, anxiety, grief and loss, and depression. I utilize an interactive or hands on approach in which clients begin to explore healthy coping skills to manage stressors, triggers, and cravings. In addition, I work to explore improving relationships through teaching individuals how to establish boundaries, and empower independence.

As an Art Therapist, I utilize a variety of art media to explore current and past issues and allow the creative process to initiate exploration of emotions. Additionally, I utilize traditional talk therapy approaches through a person-centered model to address addictions and related issues.


Leslie Inlow

As a licensed social worker experienced in working with addiction issues and everything that goes along with them (depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, codependency, etc.), I am passionate about helping people like you. People who want to grow, change and heal from their addictive patterns or other dysfunction in their lives, and are willing to invest in the therapeutic process to achieve the freedom, joy, and healing they are seeking.

I am passionate about the process of recovery from addiction. I have seen the benefits of recovery from many different perspectives in my personal life, and found I was called to work in this field.  I have over 2 years of experience working with people addiction to substances, and I understand that change is a process; it doesn’t happen overnight.

Know this: you don’t have to do this alone. Whatever “this” is for you, whether it be face an addiction, heal a relationship, or you simply need to feel heard – it’s okay to ask for help. I will approach you without judgement & with compassion and kindness. I provide individual therapy, couples counseling, and group therapy and utilize a variety of approaches. I look forward to walking this journey with you!
