A Little About Me...
My name is Mellissa DePaola. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Tennessee. For 14 years I have been honored to assist and walk alongside wonderful people who are courageous in facing their trials and adversities in this life. I have experience in working with individuals and families who suffer from trauma, betrayal trauma, abuse, grief and loss, anxiety and depression (including postpartum), low self esteem, perfectionism and adoption issues. I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2005 with a Master's of Social Work. As a California native, I have also worked with many clients from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Like many, I too have suffered emotional wounds and have worked hard to mend them. My passion is helping others to courageously face their pain in order to heal so that their mends can be used as tools of strength and purpose.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two sweet children. I love to read, travel, and learn about different cultures as well as try their delicious food. I enjoy physical fitness in any form but especially running and tennis.
