Life is a journey of varied experiences and there may be moments when you don’t feel your most authentic self. As a therapist, Melissa provides a warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental space where you can explore and evolve. Through the therapeutic relationship, Melissa creates a partnership built on unconditional support, meeting you where you are in your journey, whether you need a listening ear, a challenging reflection, a guiding hand, or an empowering voice. 

Therapy will be tailored to your unique experiences and story. Melissa utilizes techniques designed to facilitate understanding and exploration of your emotions. Through the therapeutic partnership, Melissa will provide guidance toward discovering new ways to embrace your needs, change unhelpful patterns, foster resilience, and strengthen your sense of self and identity.

Melissa is passionate about working with a diverse range of individuals. Melissa’s specialty lies in working with children and teens (ages 8-17), young adults (18-30), and beyond. Melissa also welcomes the uniqueness of individuals from various backgrounds, providing expertise in areas related to trauma, anxiety, life transitions, depression, stress, grief, relationships, and personal growth. Your first session together is focused on building a strong foundation of trust. Melissa will take the time to understand your story and identify areas to be addressed in therapy.
