About Melissa

I am a licensed mental health clinician with over 15 years of experience as an educator and counselor. I have worked as a Secondary Education ELA teacher, a Crisis Clinician, a School Adjustment Counselor (in general education settings, as well as substantially separate settings), an Executive Function Coach, and a Behavior Specialist. I am a registered yoga instructor and a certified social-emotional learning facilitator. I have created and presented professional development workshops for educators with a focus on "thinking beyond behaviors" of students. Lastly, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. 

I use compassion and validation to make strong connections with all of the people I meet. I will encourage you (or your child) to question negative thoughts, while understanding specific behaviors and emotional patterns. I will work with you (or your child) to find the best tools and strategies to help everyone feel more successful in life. I am looking forward to meeting you and/or your child. You are not alone and I am looking forward to embarking on this journey with you.
