Dr. Melissa Case-Vincent

Hello! I am Dr. Melissa Case-Vincent. I earned my Psy.D. (a doctoral degree) in Counseling Psychology from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio. My clinical training has focused on evidence-based therapies to treat a range of mood and behavioral problems. Specifically, I have in-depth training in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and stress in children, adolescents, and young adults. I utilize techniques under the models of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT), mindfulness, and solution-focused orientation. I have also received specialized training in the assessment and treatment of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). I provide comprehensive psychological evaluations and therapy for a range of learning, mood, and developmental concerns. Some of these include: autism, dyslexia, learning disabilities, independent educational evaluations, consultation, parent training, and couples therapy.

Therapy Approach

My approach to therapy is interpersonal and collaborative. I strive to develop a strong therapeutic alliance that will better enable us to achieve the desired treatment goals. I have a strong interest in multicultural issues and working with diverse populations. Diversity not only consists of race or ethnicity but a myriad of other characteristics that make an individual unique. I integrate your personal history (narrative) and solution-focused goals to develop an individual treatment plan with you in order to facilitate growth.

My approach with children is from a family systems model, which emphasizes family relationships as an important factor to nurture change and development. I utilize play-based therapy along with solution-focused and CBT techniques with children and their families. In couples therapy, I use Gottman’s approach for assisting you in making your relationship work. Oftentimes, we come into our relationships with different values and childhood backgrounds. Similar to my work with individuals and families, I work to create short term goals with you to grow into the couple that you strive to be. Overall, as a therapist, I see myself as a facilitator in identifying your personal resources and providing a space to explore your inner strengths.
