Melanie has been instrumental in my healing process. She listens, she responds in a timely manner, and I really do feel supported with her. I couldn’t be more thankful for her.

I’m very pleased with my therapist so far. She gave me some tools and reminded me of my power and what I can and cannot control.

Work with me!
