Fair psychotherapy skills, but lacks focus. Appears to be only interested in talking about specific topic that likely appear to her. Furthermore, she has poor time management skills.

Melissa is wonderful! I have been a patient of Melissa's going on four years and I am very happy with the level of care and service she provides. She has done incredible work to stabilize my life after a hospitalization. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking guidance in a supportive environment.

Melissa is warm, thoughtful, and comfortable to talk to. However, she will quickly point out problematic coping techniques gently and kindly. I highly recommend Melissa and all of those in her practice.

Therapy is a very personal, private experience and I imagine that is different for everyone. Melissa has created an environment that is safe and welcoming, and it doesn't take long before it is your environment - not just one that she has created for you. She gives you the space needed to walk your journey at whatever pace is best for you, and walks with you as a support, guide, friend, and therapist. She recognized that each journey is unique.

I have been working with Melissa for several months and she's been an absolute joy. No matter how odd my concern may seem to me (or others) I've never felt judged or belittled. She's been very supportive of my journey in life and I don't think I'd be quite as sane without her guidance over these past few months. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist, particularly anyone who has what can be considered an alternative lifestyle.

Melissa has been such a blessing to me. She offers me the kind of comfort, compassion and trust that I need to really dig into the deeper, harder parts of my own self examination. Her personality and basic demeanor is that of a long seasoned wise soul. Her many dimensions of helping and healing and delicate attunement to my conflicts and challenges makes her a Rock Star in my eyes.

I have been seeing Melissa for a little over 3 years and I trust her. She is amazing! She has helped me identify a lot of the why I do things and how I can approach or practice things differently. It has truly made a difference in my life! She's honest, challenges me and provides a safe environment that is free from judgement and is full of insight, understanding and compassion. Even when there isn't anything wrong with me, I still leave her office feeling better than I did when I arrived.

I cannot say enough about how valuable Melissa's work with me has been, and what a difference it has made in my life. She is highly empathetic and intuitive. She listens intently, and I feel she really gets me! I've been seeing her weekly for over two years now. She is the best therapist I've ever had. In fact, I have recommended Melissa to several other people, at least one of whom has thanked me for the excellent recommendation!

Couldn't be bothered to return a call about an emergency situation after several days. OK for a car salesman maybe, but not a mental therapist. Thumbs Way Down.
