About Melissa Kummer Dague, LPC

Life has challenges; some up and some down. We can feel anxious, sad, alone or sometimes just stuck with no clear direction and no one we can turn to. That's when we find ourselves needing a partner to walk alongside us as we navigate the things life throws our way. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with nearly a decade and a half of experience assisting individuals who took a big step towards wellness by doing just what you are doing today and looking for a counselor who you can trust.

My approach in addressing these challenges centers around my belief that each and every individual has their own strengths and wisdom that they bring to counseling. My job is to help those I work with access those skills and utilize them to reach their goals. I may be an expert in mental health, but you are the expert on you!

I know searching for a counselor can be hard and it is so important to find the right fit. I would be happy to have a brief consultation call so we can get to know each other a bit before you make this important decision. I look forward to the possibility of being your partner on this journey towards a happier, healthier you.

My work with clients involves evidence based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD (CPT) and more. I strive to obtain in depth trainings to gain the skills to better serve those who come to me for help.

My interest in mental health began in high school when I took the only Psychology class my high school had to offer. I have a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Sam Houston State University and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Houston in both Journalism and Psychology. 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas #64087 and a Licensed Professional Clinical Mental Health Counselor in New Mexico #CCMH0214191.

Are you ready to take the first step?

My Values


Confidentiality is key to any therapeutic relationship. The first time we meet, we will discuss all the ins and outs of this special kind of privacy.


I work hard to tailer each person's therapy to fit who they are and what they need and encourage them to bring their own strengths to session.


Compassion and caring are two of the building blocks of counseling. I strive to see you celebrate your successes and be a helper for your struggles through a supportive partnership.


One of my core values as a counselor is to do my best that each person who trusts me with their care feels seen, heard and accepted without judgment.
