Melody Hatter, LCSW

Melody received a Master of Science in Social Work from The University of Texas at Arlington. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas and Iowa. Melody was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, where she has lived a majority of her life. Through MySpectrum, Melody provides Teletherapy for those living anywhere in the state of Texas!

Melody’s professional experience includes nursing home administration where she worked with elderly residents and their families to provide quality of life to those who were institutionalized. She then changed career paths to be a Social Worker and Therapist so that she could make a bigger impact working directly with those in need.

During her graduate internship at UTSW Zale Lipshy Inpatient Psychiatric Unit in Dallas, Texas, Melody discovered her passion for working with individuals struggling with the day-to-day challenges of mental health and life stressors. She engaged with many on treatment planning, individual and group therapy, as well as education and case management. She worked full-time on the unit following her internship. Melody transferred over to UTSW William P. Clements University Hospital Emergency Department working with adults from age 18+ performing mental health assessments and assisting with inpatient and outpatient treatment planning. She has helped those struggling to remain in the community and not become hospitalized. Melody has also been providing online counseling for the past several years.

Melody has engaged clients in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Reminiscent Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, as well as Motivational Interviewing. Working to manage depression, anxiety, addiction, substance use disorder, grief and/or suicidal ideation is her calling as she easily connects with others. Melody has motivated individuals, couples, and families to engage in change. 

In her free time, Melody spends time with her adult children and enjoys an adventurous life in Texas.
