Senior Clinical Director

Barry LawlorMy name is Barry Lawlor, LPC, NCC, DBTC.  I have experience in a variety of settings, I have worked for Youth For Tomorrow’s (YFT) Residential Treatment Center serving at risk adolescents and their families for 6 plus years.  From 2012 through 2014 before I returned to YFT I worked as an Intake Therapist for Novant Prince William Medical Center for Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment Unit as well as working in the ER doing emergency assessments. I have done outpatient therapy for brief periods of time throughout my time as a Therapist.  I have clinical experience working with adolescent/adult mental health disorders including: depression, dysthymia, bipolar disorder, PTSD, Complex Trauma, physical and sexual abuse, Borderline Personality Disorder. I work primarily with adolescents and adults.

I grew up in the Northern Virginia area and graduated from Regent University with my Masters in Community Counseling in 2005.  I am credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor and I am certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  Along with DBT, I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Family Systems as well as using Christ Centered interventions.  I have a heart to work with the Human Trafficking population of the Northern Virginia/Maryland/DC area as this has been a population I have served while in the Residential Program.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, watching baseball, and listening to music.

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.
