Melanie Hoffman is a counselor who brings more than 10 years of experience to Village Health Partners. She is passionate about helping patients maintain quality of life and preserving their rights to protect personal choices.
Melanie works with patients through chronic and terminal illnesses, mood disorders, life transitions and broken relationships. She enjoys seeing patients develop new coping skills that allow them to rise above negative experiences and helps patients be better equipped for the future. She believes one of the most critical building blocks of personal development and fulfillment is the ability to navigate life successfully and find joy in daily living through positive relationships that motivate and encourage us.
She wants to help patients vocalize their genuine emotions and whatever is causing them pain, and she encourages patients to broaden their perspective, so they see they are not alone in what they’re experiencing. She facilitates reviews of other times in a patient’s life to help them see that they eventually felt better after what they faced. She wants patients to get better as soon as possible and helps them feel there is hope in their near future.
Melanie recommends patients focus on sleep and rest (both necessary to maintain emotional and psychological health), a healthy diet and keeping up with regular screenings to avoid unnecessary negative impacts on health and finances
