Melinda is gentle and listens. She has made the whole experience of therapy a very human one, more of a guided conversation where I can hear my thoughts out loud. She shares wisdoms that often echo long past the appointment.

I recently started working with Melinda and she has a lovely, calm approach, is respectful and knowledgeable. My life is hell right now and she is helping me to work through chaos.
I understand this process and have all the time in the world to work through my problems with Melinda there to help. Very thankful!
