I am licensed in Massachusetts and Vermont, with 20 years of professional, clinical experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with many of life's challenges. Areas of special interest for me are: postpartum challenges and adjusting to being new parents, addiction to substances, coping with grief and building confidence. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will make every effort to tailor the work we do to meet your specific needs. If you are new to therapy, you may have a bit of anxiety about getting started. To help, we will begin by discussing what feels like the right approach for you. No need to tackle everything all at once. We can go at a pace that feels right for you.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Addictions, Relationship issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Codependency, Guilt and Shame, Hospice and End of Life Counseling, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Postpartum Depression, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Women's Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems

Melinda is amazing! She has a very warm and welcoming presence. She makes me feel comfortable to talk to her about things that I have never been able to talk to any therapist or anyone in general about. She is a great listener and is not judgmental. Melinda provides me with videos , resources and activities outside of our actual therapy calls. I have nothing but extremely positive things to say about her. I love working with Melinda and rate her 10000000/10.
