Melanie (she/her) is a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern who earned her Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Central Florida.

Prior to her career as a therapist, Melanie taught teenagers in BIPOC neighborhoods. She loves helping teens navigate the challenges of anxiety, identity, and trauma. She also gained experience facilitating adult groups with grassroots non-profits that focused on recovery after loss, church hurt, and/or sexual trauma.

Something unique about Melanie’s approach is her combination of body-based and narrative techniques.

This means she believes:

  • Attuned relationships rewire our brains and nervous systems.

  • Trusting your body to guide you on your healing journey.

  • As you share your story with someone who is able to name both your deep your hurt and your deep goodness, then you can grow a deeper capacity to know and live a full life.
