Hello! I'm Melissa and my belief is that therapy is a collaborative process that empowers you to obtain the insight and wisdom to answer your own questions. I believe that we all inherently possess the tools to solve our most challenging life crises, however, have lost perspective, support, and compassion towards ourselves and others. I specialize in helping people seek balance and wellness. I work with those looking to find resolution and recover their personal power.
The passion I have for helping others comes from my own personal experiences with self-discovery, managing career pressures and ambition and navigating the often unpredictable paths of life. I am a Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master’s candidate at Northwestern University and want to help others heal and learn to live a balanced and fulfilling life.
Meeting your individual needs and honoring your unique way of relating to the world is my focus. My job is to provide a safe non- judgmental environment as we uncover the things that keep you from absolute wellness.
