MELVIN BLACKWELL  BS, INTERN

​Children & Adolescents


Hi, my name is Melvin Blackwell.


I am a Licensed Professional Counseling Intern and am currently pursuing my Master of Education in School Counseling from Liberty University.


I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with a focus in Healthcare Management, from the University of Mount Olive in North Carolina.  Additionally, I am a retired veteran of the United States Air Force, with 21 years of service.

I view counseling as an opportunity to provide a safe and nonjudgmental environment to clients to aid those who desire growth and healing.  
I strive to create an atmosphere for clients to feel free to share freely and set goals. 


I am also a high school teacher who loves working with children and adolescents. 
I have a desire to help clients discover their strengths as well as find ways to allow them to welcome opportunities for growth.
