Overview

Hello & welcome! I am Mel.

Therapy is a collaboration: You are the expert of your story, I am here to help you anchor it. We all deserve to feel seen, heard, & celebrated--to reclaim the parts of us that have been rejected, abandoned, or forgotten.
My work has mostly involved treating clients with family & relationship issues, perfectionism & burnout, and trauma & abuse recovery from sexual, religious, & narcissistic abuse.

I lean less traditional & more integrative. I find it stress reducing & interesting to incorporate expressive arts therapy into sessions when talk therapy seems difficult to access. Why relational therapy? If we are wounded in relationship, we have the opportunity to heal in [safe] relationship.

I value the importance of culture, intersectionality, & collective experiences. I believe that healing is incomplete when failing to pay attention to the role that systems & power differentials have in keeping communities living in oppression.

Let's connect!
