Melanie Caron-Vlasak, LCSW

Hello! My name is Melanie.

Over the past 23 years, I have been working with children and adolescents and I am passionate about giving them the skills they need to cope with the ups and downs of life. As a former school social worker and school-based therapist, I understand the demands and pressure children and teens feel.

In therapy, I use traditional talk therapy and play games, use art, writing, and music to best serve my clients. I also like to equip families with the tools and resources they need to support their children.

I grew up in beautiful Upper Michigan and then spent additional 20 years in Minneapolis, MN, where I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Augsburg University.

In my free time, I enjoy baking, cooking, listening to Podcasts, kayaking, and spending time with my family, friends, and sweet pup.
I welcome the opportunity to be a part of your story.
