Many things in life can cause us to feel off balance or not like ourselves. This can include difficult life transitions, lack of motivation, feeling 'stuck', struggles with becoming a mom, fertility problems, or grief and loss.
When we experience these situations we can feel alone or scared to say how we really feel. I strive to make women feel comfortable and safe so that they can talk about the hardships of life and begin to feel like themselves again.
Hello, I'm Melissa!
I have over 10 years of mental health experience and I am passionate about working with women and maternal mental health. I feel it is important to help women find their voice and be empowered to make the changes they wish to see.
My treatment method utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and other therapy approaches. This style allows women to learn concrete skills and to begin using them immediately.
