Meet the Staff of MCP Counseling

You Deserve to Feel Great. We Are Here to Help.

Melinda Porter, MA, LPC-S is a counselor in Carrollton, Texas. Melinda began her career in education, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Education with an Early Childhood Endorsement. She then went on to pursue a master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Texas Wesleyan University. While her teaching career was fruitful and lasted for 13 years, she decided to venture into counseling – an endeavor that will allow her to work with individuals and their families as a unit.

Melinda is also happy to help those who identify with any other non-conforming sexual or gender identity. She has assisted families coping with the “coming out” process and has helped individuals through online video counseling. Overall, she is focused on providing a non-judgmental, comforting environment that cultivates communication and expression. Melinda will guide you on a path toward self-understanding, self-comfort, and self-discovery.

Melinda is proud to offer the following counseling services:

  • Depression, stress, anxiety, panic attacks
  • Family Communication
  • Sex Positive Therapy
  • Working with individuals and/or families in Non-Traditional Relationships/CNM
  • Sexuality – identifying your path to growth
  • Gender – supporting you in finding your congruent self
  • Life Transitions – working to have a healthy understanding of self and supporting you through transitional periods in your life
  • Online Counseling – supporting you wherever you are
