Owner, Clinical Director, Registered Social Worker and Professional Coach

Welcome! I’m happy you’re here.

People often reach out to me when they are feeling stuck in their lives. They want something to change, but they don’t know how. With a warm and non-judgmental approach, I help guide them from distress to a place of healing, personal growth, and self-discovery.

Transformation comes from addressing the root causes. I like to swim upstream with clients and move beyond managing symptoms to foster lasting change. I take a compassionate, person-centered approach that combines evidence-based practices with the radical pragmatism to best serve my clients. I help people break free from patterns that keep them stuck, heal trauma, and build a deeper connection to themselves and others.

Like you, I’ve done my own therapeutic work and understand the excitement, hope, and fear that accompanies change. I find immense honor in doing this work and am constantly in awe of the courage and vulnerability that people bring to our conversations.

I especially enjoy working with helping professionals, and over my career I’ve become a therapist for therapists. Afterall, our strengths often emerge from our own wounds. I coach professionals in various helping capacities to ensure they have long, sustainable careers doing the work they love.

I look forward to the opportunity of joining you on this transformative journey, where together, we’ll navigate life’s challenges with resilience, compassion, and a deepened sense of self.

Melissa Outside of Session

Outside of work, you’ll catch me exploring the outdoors (AKA getting lost in the woods with my dog), spending time with friends, or immersing myself in the pages of a captivating book, all while savoring a warm cup of tea. Life’s an adventure, and whether discovering new places or relishing hidden gems, I’m here for the exhilarating twists and turns.
