I highly recommend Dr. Samartano. She is easy to talk to and is a great listener. I instantly felt comfortable talking and sharing with her. Her holistic approach to counseling through the use of counseling, and optional use of meditation strategies and yoga has been ideal for dealing with anxiety.

Dr. Samartano has been truly wonderful to work with. She makes you feel comfortable, but also makes you aware of your own capabilities and strengths. I can appreciate that I feel like I am a part of my own success on goals that I am working on to achieve.

Dr. Samartano is very compassionate. She's soft-spoken and listens. Her approach is very conservative. She has been a big help to me, and what I like best is she has a favorable of complimentary and alternative medications. I like her recommendations for herbs and readily available natural products. She's also very understanding and willing to work with you as far as scheduling appointments and re-scheduling if needed.

Melissa’s energy is very warm and inviting. She makes it a comfortable environment to talk about things that may not always be easy to do- but are necessary for emotional healing and growth. I have learned a lot from her over the past few years, and continue to work on myself w/ the tools she has given me. I have recommended her many times already, and will continue to do so as I feel we could all benefit from some emotional guidance in this crazy journey of life!

If it weren't for this woman, I may not be here today. She truly listens and helps. The best part, no prescriptions so none of the "let's try this or try that pill". If you are looking to find help, I highly recommend her!

I would highly recommend Melissa's Hatha Yoga Class. She is a great instructor for those new to yoga and very flexible with me signing up last minute! She was accommodating, patient and has such a soothing tone. I left her class feeling amazing, relaxed and can't wait to get back.

I have been seeing Melissa for many years. Her holistic approach on guiding me through a very difficult time in my life has been life changing. She helped me understand the mind/body connection by opening my mind to mindfulness and yoga along with traditional therapy. All of these are "tools" I will use for the rest of life. Her knowledge of the mind and body in combination with her medical training in the field gives her , in my opinion, an advantage over "traditional" therapy. Namaste

I have had cancer for years and Melissa has shown me an alternative way to heal my body. My cancer is in remission. I continue to see her and use medication when necessary to keep cancer from metastizing. I had been to several therapists and she is the only one that could help me learn techniques to decrease stress and activate healing in my body! I highly recommend her services!

Melissa is a compassionate clinician. I brought my son to see her when he was struggling with major depression and had thoughts of suicide. Melissa saved by teaching him a mind, body, spirit approach to healing. My son is doing much better since seeing her and he still uses the coping strategies she taught him. I highly recommend her services! She is a God send!

This doctor is extremely condescending and incompetent. She had an issue with my insurance and asked me if I would pay if my insurance didn't . I told her I would. Her fee is $135.00 per hour. I asked her, since I'm going to pay, am I going to have 60 minutes for my session? She said she couldn't guarantee the 60 minutes because I was two minutes late. I spent 10 minutes waiting, another ten minutes discussing my insurance. She wanted $135.00 for 30 minutes. I walked out.
