My work is client-centered, strengths-based and solutions-focused. To get un-stuck we got to get MOVING! With my training in mindfulness, DBT, and motivational interviewing, my clients can be certain that I am operating from an evidence-based foundation to help them build a life they can be proud of and absolutely fall in love with! I earned a certificate in International Social Work and therefore, work within a culturally-competent framework. The content of my sessions center around the mind-body-earth connection, nutrition, self-care and spirituality. As the basics fall into place, this work elevates to a soul level. It is an honor to meet my clients in this space and help them SOAR.
I offer strengths-based support for people addicted to drugs, alcohol, codependency, or struggling with other process addictions (food, spending, sex, gaming, etc) Whether you have an active addiction or are already in recovery, I will aid you on a path to complete sobriety or at least to reduce the harm your addictive behaviors is causing. Together we will find the resources you need to live your best life. Long-lasting positive change doesn’t come easy when you do it alone. In-person (for Durango residents) and telehealth coaching sessions (nationwide), along with daily check-in’s to help you develop your own practice that will eventually become a lifestyle you won’t want to turn away from.
Addiction is an isolating experience. Coming together in a a group reminds you that you are not alone. The stories shared by others can instruct and inspire. Having other people who care witness your commitment to change is another powerful element of the group experience. The Zoom platform allows you to be a part of a group, no matter where you live, from the privacy and comfort of your own home.
Autumn is a compassionate, resourceful, knowledgeable, and a responsive professional who assisted our family through several important transitions. Whether responding to every day needs or facing some of life’s most challenging decisions, we knew we could rely on Melinda Autumn Stonecliffe, LCSW.”
I was addicted to drugs for my entire adult life; using them when I was angry or sad, bored or even happy. There was always an excuse to use. Autumn has helped me these last three years and I’ve stayed clean! I never thought it was possible, but I’m actually learning to like myself again. I want to live. And I’m doing it.”
Through goals that we set together I was able to overcome personal fears and move on to have some great successes, like graduating college, finding my dream job, and becoming newly engaged. Autumn’s passion for the people she helps goes beyond work, I feel that she cares personally about me and my family.”
Autumn! I love her name. Her name to me means healing. I have searched for a therapist that I could connect with for many years. Noone clicked. I started to hate therapy and saw no point in it. As life continued so did my battle with mental health. I found myself in a mental hospital at the U of U Hospital. Upon my release they gave me a social worker whom I was supposed to meet with the following day. My thoughts...another damn therapist. I’ve been down this road. God help me. As I crawled into her office the next day. I saw a beautiful, glowing woman walk down the hall towards me.
