About Me

Beyond loving to help people become better individuals I enjoy exploring the world and learning new cultures, caring for animals and being outdoors. I have over 6 years of experience working in the mental health field. I earned a Master’s in Arts in Counseling Psychology from Anna Maria College and a Master’s in Science with a specialization in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Massachusetts Boston. I have experience working in different settings such as at home, mental health agencies, hospital and school settings.

I use a holistic approach in my treatment working with a diverse background with various mental health dispositions. Some of these areas I have experience in includes treating anxiety, depression, mood disorders, cultural diversity, work stressors, life transitions and also help in redefining values and beliefs. Modalities I have implemented in my treatment approaches includes cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic therapy, solution focused therapy, person centered therapy and expressive therapy. I also have pursued training in trauma focused therapy where I help individuals explore past traumatic events that shape them to who they are in the present moment and striving towards becoming better individuals in the present and future.

By creating an unconditional, supportive and trustworthy environment I am hopeful to helping individuals explore their full potentials by using their challenges and strengths to reach their goals and to pursue future endeavors. Looking forward to exploring this journey together.

Written by L.E. on Nov 24, 2021 after therapy with Melissa for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, relationship issues, family conflicts, coping with life changes, anger management, career difficulties, sleeping disorders, compassion fatigue, and bipolar disorder

Melissa was extremely kind and listened to me keenly during all our sessions so far. Although its been a short time she has helped me look into myself and identify what improvements i need to make that will greatly impact my life.

She communicates very well and responds in a timely manner. Also, when i first joined betterhelp and was paired with my therapist, i desperately needed an immediate session and although her next available appointments were too far, she heard my cry for help and accommodated me immediately, for this I am truly grateful.

Melissa is a fantastic counselor. I was hesitant coming in, as I had never done any form of therapy before, but she was welcoming, understanding, and easy to talk with. I'm in a much better place than when we first started, and I would recommend her to anybody.
