You deserve to live a life that is balanced, fulfilling & meaningful. With the stressors & pressures of our society, it can be difficult to navigate your life’s roadmap. Therapy gives you the tools to learn from your past, be mindful in the present & pave the way for a brighter future. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, depression, or other issues that interfere with your personal well-being, psychotherapy can help you access your innate ability to heal & thrive. I have 13 years' experience empowering individuals & couples impacted by grief, illness, trauma & addiction.
My education & experience in the healthcare/mental health industries allows me to approach client issues from a global, integrative perspective. I'm trained in psychoanalytical, cognitive & dialectical behavior therapies. I partner with each client to develop an individualized wellness plan that helps in facilitating sustainable, positive life changes.
Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma or a change in health, I feel your struggle is a valiant one worthy of respect, understanding & compassion. I would be honored if you chose to take that first step towards wellness with me.

She is wonderful.
My partner and I really love Melissa. She is such an empathetic, clear, and most importantly, fair therapist. She has such a way of making us both feel listened to, validated and comfortable to express ourselves. She’s never judgmental, in fact she’s very intuitive and knows just what to say just when it is needed most. I can’t recommend Melissa more, try her out!
Melissa is exceptional. She is professional and a joy to openly communicate with during our session. She actively listens to both my fiancé and I, and provides both of us “assignments” to improve aspects of our relationship.
Melissa has been very professional and has a lot of experience. Our only issue is with the Regain video app that seems to have a time delay on international video chats. This makes communication frustrating and affects the therapeutic relationship
I have been with Melissa for a short time, but during this short time she has given me a lot of clarity in heart and mind. She has allowed me to hear and see all parts of myself with love and compassion. I could not recommend anyone more. Thanks so much, Melissa.
