About

A registered psychotherapist, Melissa has a Master’s Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and is registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA). Melissa uses a range of evidenced based approaches, tailoring the therapy to best suit the individual needs of her clients.
As a counsellor in a school environment, she uses her interest and experience in achieving positive academic and personal outcomes for students, including preparing and supporting those studying VCE.
