Melissa Quist is a Licensed Professional Counselor who earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling through Central Michigan University. She has had the privilege of interning in settings that come alongside women/families faced with unplanned pregnancies, and organizations that support women in transition. Her first career began in 1988 as a preschool teacher resulting in thirty three years of experience with children in multiple settings. She has experience working with individuals in crisis through community mental health.

It is my belief that there are some common milestones throughout our lifespan. If we have not experienced success with that milestone, we can revisit that task or concept. Our patterns of relating to the people around us are created very early in life, but this does not mean they cannot be altered or improved. With that, I utilize cognitive behavioral theory to help individuals realize their patterns of thoughts, behaviors and actions. This empowers individuals to alter these patterns, and enables them to tap into their strengths and capabilities. I believe it is important to acknowledge our past in order to embrace our present, and look forward to our future.

Melissa Quist-Bieszke participates in the Diversity Collective.
