My name is Melissa Wallace, LCSW

Hi! I am the owner and operator of Leading Light Therapy, LLC. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida as well as a CCTP (Certified Clinical Trauma Professional). I have experience working with children in the foster care system as well as individuals, couples, and families at a local psychiatrist's office. I enjoy working with a variety of people and have a gentle and encouraging approach. I believe a calm and positive mindset is important so I try to bring this with me into all of my sessions to help people feel at ease while speaking with me. 

I look forward to hearing from you and talking to you soon!
