Our Dumfries Staff

Melanie Calhoun LPC, NCC 

Onsite Director Dumfries

Melanie CalhounHi, I’m Melanie! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor and am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I am also under supervision to become a Registered Play Therapist and provide play therapy to children ages 5 to 11. I am passionate about working with clients in a person-centered, non-judgmental environment where we can collaboratively instill positive change and growth in their daily living. I strive to create a warm, empathetic atmosphere where clients can build emotional safety to then be able to address current challenges in their life. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds, but do have a love for children, adolescents and young adults. I have experience supporting clients to cope with and better manage depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, grief and loss, attachment issues, identity development exploration, relational struggles, self-injurious behaviors, adjustment difficulties, adolescent challenges and negative self-concept. 

I graduated in 2013 from Slippery Rock University with Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Dance, and in 2016 with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Youth. I was awarded the 2016 Outstanding Graduate award from my Master’s program. Outside of YFT, I have been a dancer, dance educator, and choreographer for many years and love the arts in general. In addition to dance, I also enjoy spending time with loved ones, walking my dogs, reading, traveling, and watching baseball.

Christopher Coleman, LSATP, LPC
Substance Abuse Therapist

Chris ColemanFrom the words of LL Cool J’s song: “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years” would be a statement upon my return to Youth For Tomorrow. Hello, my name is Chris Coleman, a dually licensed therapist in the Commonwealth of Virginia (Licensed Professional Counselor & Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Provider), the Substance Abuse Program Manager, and I was an integral part of developing the substance abuse program for Youth For Tomorrow, from 2017-2019. Another hip-hop reference would be my return is like the rap group from the 1990’s, EPMD: Unfinished Business. While away in my private practice, I remained in contact, observing the changes and work being done, growth & expansions, even providing some consultation here and there, yet my heart was still here.

I possess a Masters degree in Addiction Counseling and a Master’s degree in professional counseling, and I have earned a degree in biblical studies. I am a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) through NAADAC (The Association for Addiction Professionals), a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP/DOT). I have worked in residential, inpatient, outpatient, crisis centers, jails, prisons, locked facilities and with probation & parole. I currently serve on the state affiliate board of NAADAC, called Virginia Association of Addiction Professionals, or VAAP, as the writer of the newsletters on the communications team, and work with the Advocacy and membership team. I am also a Virginia approved Clinical Supervisor, and currently possess licenses to practice in North Carolina, Maryland, and Florida.

My career began working with at-risk youth in 1994, in a residential setting for substance use disorders, gang members, foster children and behavioral issues. My experiences and strengths are group therapy, substance use and co-occurring disorders, trauma, men’s issues, depression, anxiety disorders and anger management. My theoretical approach is eclectic; however, I primarily use Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral & Dialectical Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Client-Centered/Strength Based, and Schema Therapy. With that said, everything and anything I have and utilize, starts and ends with the gracious empowerment of a biblically based approach and skill, as I also provide Christian Counseling. Without The Lord leading, guiding and empowering me, I can do nothing. One of my mottos: “If it causes a problem, then it IS, a problem.” I look forward to working with you.
