OUR FACILITIES DIRECTOR



Facility Director

Rob Puzycki, MA, LPC, EMDR Certified



Rob Puzycki, Facility Director and a Licensed Professional Counselor, motivated by his love for psychology and desire to be present through the process of healing and recovery with the individuals we serve at Supreme Wellness Recovery.  Rob has been working in the field of addiction and co-occurring mental health since 2013.  Rob was inspired to work in the counseling fields after he graduated from college when he worked at an overnight homeless shelter in Philadelphia as a seasonal job in the winter. Rob’s deep insight, compassion and love for therapy speaks when he describes what he has discovered in his years of counseling stating that “the symptoms we want to be rid of have deep roots that a part of our being actually fears to lose”.

Rob is passionate about taking a holistic and person-centered approach to therapy as to meet everyone’s unique needs and characteristics.  He believes that a therapeutic alliance is built upon a foundation of “allowing”, allowing for the individual to guide the therapy process without interfering with his own personal ideas of ways life. Rob creatively draws from a variety of evidenced based theoretical orientations and interventions based upon the individual’s specific needs.  Models include:  Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Gestalt Experiential therapies, Existentialism, and Coherence Therapy because “it allows someone to understand the “needs” of symptoms we want to get rid of”.

Rob can be described as highly intelligent, organized, and efficient while simultaneously having all in his presence in tears from laughter as he is hilarious and truly a kind human being.  In his personal life, Robert loves hiking, working out and playing with his dogs.  He holds a special affinity for the Tibetan Spaniel breed inspired by his pup Lilly.  Ultimately, what speaks volumes, is Roberts deeply compassionate nature which is profoundly soothing to the individuals we serve as well as to the counselors he supervises, creating a safe and healthy therapy and work environment.

Primary Counselor

Melissa Hood-March, B.S.


Melissa has been treating individuals with co-occurring disorders since she began teaching trauma sensitive yoga over six years ago which evolved into her growth as a therapist. Melissa graduated at the top of her class at Penn State University and is actively pursuing her Masters in Counseling at Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School for Addiction Studies, which will then lead to state licensure. Melissa’s personal life’s journey and experiences have provided her with passion and purpose to help others on their paths.

Melissa believes it is essential in a process of healing and recovery to bring the body into treatment, as an awareness of one’s sensations and physical responses, also understood as “a felt sense” of one’s experience, is an integral part of psychological well-being and is crucial to authentically experiencing one’s feelings. What makes Melissa unique from many clinicians is her authenticity in being, or as the well renown Irvin D. Yalom would describe, “a fellow traveler”. She invests her time and energy wisely into each session, and interaction with her individual clients and groups. She believes the most important part of the therapeutic relationship is Safety, Compassion, Attunement and Respect. Her primary therapeutic approaches are, but not limited to, ACT, DBT, Somatic Psychology approaches such as dance, yoga, Tai Chi and Chi Going as well as Gestalt interventions such as role playing, empty chair, art therapy and creative writing. Melissa expresses, “I feel most connected to methods which bring out the client’s core values and that are experiential in nature”. Melissa displays her holistic expertise through the utilization of trauma sensitive and informed interventions that are creative and experiential coupled with traditional foundations to build safety and stability within the therapeutic alliance.

Aside from being an amazing mom, the best way to describe Melissa is to see her as: a giver and receiver of healing, a dancer, explorer and adventurer of nature and life. Her amazing gift of seeing the world as a blessing to be a part of is contagious not just for her friends and family, but also the clients she serves every day.

One of Melissa’s favorite quotes that speaks to her philosophy in her life and her work:
“I believe there is something magical that happens when we open up ourselves to be received. In the witnessing of the other – the formless becomes a shared experience of interconnection and healing.”
-Phoenix Onesong Marolda
