Who We Are
I believe that the mind cannot recover without the body and soul. I am holistic, expressive and eclectic in my approach. In order to heal and change your thoughts, the rest of you must follow. I am Melissa Benson a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist and Licensed Professional Counselor providing psychotherapy and counseling services in the Huntersville and Charlotte area. My hope is that you will experience something different as I incorporate singing, music and breathing techniques into our sessions, techniques that can only enhance the use of other evidenced based practices. To our future collaboration I say Hello, and welcome to Truce and Surrender Counseling and Consulting Services.
Stress Management & Mindfulness
Stress can either knock you down or force you to get up. Is one form of stress worse than the others?
Individual & Family Therapy
Sometimes going through things alone can be scary. When you are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, feelings of low self esteem and or anger it can be difficult to express how these issues are affecting you.
Intellectual Developmental Disabilities
How many times have you felt different, alone, disrespected, bullied, misunderstood. At times, these are things that many people diagnosed with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder can and will experience.
Alcohol & Addiction
Why is it so difficult to admit when we have a problem? Is it that we need clarity to see the problem, how else would we recognize it if there is no clarity.
