Melissa has been helpful in my journey of life. She provides a space that feels safe for sharing. Melissa is a great supporter and offers exercises to help any situation. I cannot put into words how helpful Melissa has been to me.

Melissa is the best! She gets me to open up and not feel any judgment. She listens to me and offers me great insight. So happy that I’ve found her and look forward to our sessions.

Written on Aug 02, 2023 after therapy with Melissa for 5 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and trauma and abuse

I was extremely nervous about getting back into therapy after my experience at the behavioral hospital but Melissa was so very supportive and understanding and made me feel comfortable talking to her on my first video call. I’ve been more confident in talking about the things that have been bothering me and about my past experiences and bringing them up with her.

Melissa goes above and beyond to tend to my needs and wants when it comes to therapy. She goes out of her way to address my issues and seems to deeply involve herself and apply herself and it has been moving for me. I think she is wonderful and she has helped me to see brightness in dark situations and look at myself in a better light
