Mel (she/her) believes in the body and mind connection and the importance of wellness throughout both systems as they interact and heal together. She is focused on helping individuals, couples, and families nurture their relationships through uncovering narratives that no longer serve them and finding healthy ways to express emotions. Her goal in therapy is to provide a safe environment for couples and families to share their story, offering avenues for healing intergenerational trauma, and empowering adolescents and athletes to advocate for themselves as they blossom into the people they are becoming. She is trained and certified as a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator and has special interest in working with couples as they continue learning about one another. Her special interests include working with families navigating transitions, providing tools for parenting, and adolescents and athletes experiencing anxiety and depression.
