the care you deserve

We all have experiences that shape the way we tell our story. These experiences shape what we expect, believe we are capable of, how we experience relationships and friendship, and what we think we deserve. Therapy is a place to begin understanding the 'why' and 'how' of ourselves and to address what is not working.

hi, i am melissa

If you are thinking about scheduling an appointment with me, I imagine you are wondering who I am and what makes me qualified to be your therapist. Primarily, I want to get to know you, understand you, and help you like yourself the way I like you. More specifically, I primarily work with Trauma, Depression and Anxiety. I use traditional talk therapy as well as EMDR to help folks move through difficult times and memories. I have a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University Seattle, and I am licensed in the state of Washington as an LMHC. I did my undergraduate work at the University of California at Davis
