Mel is an integrative therapist who works through a queer/trans affirmative and anti-oppressive lens to honor our intersectional identities and the impact that society has on our experiences and mental health. She incorporates techniques from approaches such as Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic Theory. They strive to create a safe environment for clients to embrace their true selves in each session. Mel believes that a strong therapeutic relationship is unique and transformative. When built on trust and non-judgement, it opens up a space where you can practice connecting with your emotions, expressing yourself, and employing unconditional self-compassion.
