Melinda is a brilliant beam of light in a world darkened by depression. Her compassion and support shine ithroughout the sessions. I have felt affirmed, validated, encouraged and challenged by her. She presents new ways of looking at old situations and brings a fresh perspective to that of using failed techniques to handle problems and deal with challenges. I find that she is helping me to "change my mind". I highly recommend her to those who are trying to do the same!

I got the impression that Melinda was not fully invested in helping me. She appeared distracted by her own problems. She could not recall anything that had been discussed in previous sessions. She also cancelled on me numerous times.
