New Leaf Counseling Group was founded by Mr. Logan Cohen in 2014 and established in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. Over the last 12 years, New Leaf Counseling Group has been dedicated to serving community members who are in need of emotional and psychological support, especially those struggling with disruption in their most personal and intimate social relationships. Melissa is a counselor at our practice who continues this philosophy.

Melissa is the latest clinician to join our team at New Leaf Counseling Group, however she has been working with individuals, couples, and families for over a decade - particularly those dealing with Anxiety and/or Depression symptoms resulting from medical issues such as chronic illness, autoimmune diseases, sleep disorders, and adjusting to new diagnoses. In part from her training as a Medical Family Therapist, as well as through her own personal experiences, Melissa is very familiar with the unique challenges chronic health conditions create in our personal and professional life. Melissa also enjoys working with individuals, couples, and families who are ready to GROW, but instead are struggling with barriers in communication, intimacy, and conflict.

Melissa is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and is passionate about using this training & expertise with community members in the Charlotte area who are recovering from their own unresolved trauma(s). This trauma work also involves important elements of grief & loss, where the cross training in Medical Family Therapy becomes helpful for supporting clients in healing from unresolved wounds. Very few of us have not been impacted by trauma, Melissa included, and she has an innate passion for supporting community members healing from past wounds.


"I am an empathetic and down-to-earth therapist with a direct style and plenty of knowledge about how to help families, couples, and individuals who are learning to cope with trauma, grief, loss, family conflict, and life transitions on their way to GROWTH."
