In the year 2013, God laid "His Family Services" on my heart. He has been slowly showing and filling me with his passion and love for those in need. I was recently given the opportunity to bring this into fruition with the awesome love and support of First Baptist Church of Joshua Tree and my awesome family, to God be the Glory!

Professional Christian Counselor
I am a graduate of Liberty University and hold a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling and a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. I have also walked as a believer in Christ since 1991. My heart and passion are to help those who are struggling with various challenges in their life story such as, depression, abandonment, abuse, childhood trauma, marriage, and family struggles. Additionally, I counsel from a Christian Biblical foundation and utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as my theoretical approach. I believe that this integrative approach can promote lasting healing. I will walk with you (2Cor. 1:3-5) in your time of need so that you can receive comfort and guidance that can
bring you restorative healing through the therapy process.
"The purpose in a [person’s] heart is like deep water, but a [person] of understanding will draw it out."
— Proverbs 20:5
Louise Melendez, M.A. Professional Christian Counselor
Christian Counseling at His Family Services is conducted by a Professional Counselor who is also trained
in Biblical counseling. The therapy is an integrated approach of psychological technique with
Biblical Truth as the foundation that encompasses prayer, scripture, and spiritual disciplines. This approach is under the belief that emotions, thoughts, behaviors, biology, and spiritual formation/beliefs are woven together
into a unique personality that makes up who you are and helps to define your purpose. This integrative
approach allows for a dynamic and fluid learning style that is best suited for your circumstances and
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your
mind and with all of your strength.”
— Mark 12:30
