She has been a wonderful guide and support. She listens patiently and is empathetic. She helps you to look within and answer all the questions you have, to better understand the situation and things that happened and are happening to you. I would surely recommend her.
Wonderful energy! I always feel better after talking with her.
Very personable and to the point. It was more the speed of the meetings that created issues rather than anything on Melissa’s part. I will remember her advice for many years. Succinct and clear.
A very helpful and thoughtful therapist.
She is great at responding and is very positive.
I really appreciate her guidance and help with the issues that I have. She has a wonderful attitude and demeanor and is very talkative. I feel like she understands me well and is able to counsel accordingly.
Melissa is a very special person. She listens, gives you her undivided attention and offers the most practical thoughts on how to improve the situation. Her advice is not prescriptive or theoretical, it’s real and easily applicable. She gives you a way to process the situation differently and you work through your thought processes together so that at the end I always feel re-aligned. I always feel better after our sessions. I’ve had a few counsellors before yet I have never met someone as insightful as Melissa. She has truly made a huge difference to my outlook. I feel very blessed to have met her.
There is zero judgement and allows me to lead the conversation! I look forward to my sessions and constantly think about the advice given to me.
Melissa is fully present when I'm speaking and processing out loud, especially when I don't know what I'm trying to communicate. She questions me, pulls out the core belief or thinking pattern behind it and sends resources specifically targeted to work on that area. She's great!
Melissa is very professional and friendly. She really makes me feel like I can do better and more with my life. I feel like I can and she has really helped me build and feel confident in my planning and goals. Thank you so much for you help!
Melissa was very supportive during our first session. She respected my pace and gave me very practical suggestions. I'm looking forward to our next appointment.
Melissa is very caring and takes the time to listen and give advice. Strongly would suggest her to anyone.
