Melinda Haynes completed a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at California State University, Chico ("Chico State") and a Master of Arts in Psychology at California Southern University ("Cal Southern"). After launching her professional therapy career as a therapeutic foster care therapist in the great state of Oklahoma, she ventured out into her own Private Practice in a suburb of Tulsa.
When Northern California called her back home, she completed the licensing processes for marriage & family therapists (again!) and relocated her Private Practice to Chico.
In 2018, she founded Family & Children’s Counseling Services, Inc. with a vision to facilitate healing and whole-person well-being through the use of a variety of clinically proven psycho-social interventions.
Melinda has assisted children and families in regards to social, emotional and behavioral concerns, parenting, life transitions and healthy adjustment since 2003.
Melinda is proud of her adult children: a son (26 year old soon-to-be Chico State graduate), a daughter (21 year old University of Central Oklahoma nursing student), and her youngest daughter (7 year old art enthusiast).
