Melanie (they/them) is a Mental Health Counselor from Puerto Rico with a diverse set of experiences across settings who strives to build trusting relationships and create a warm caring environment where you are invited to challenge ideas of judgement and critique, instead seeking to embrace self-compassion and build upon your strengths to help achieve satisfaction and fulfillment in day-to-day life. As well as supporting individuals and families with repair in relationships, building resiliency, and addressing the impact of systems issues, such as school support (IEP/504/CRA), hospitalizations, discrimination, among others.
As a bilingual clinician of color, Melanie applies cultural understanding across social identities to help with parent-child relationships, pregnancy and post-partum mood, substance misuse/dual diagnosis, LGBTQIA2S+ care, immigration and acculturation, intimate partner/domestic violence, and neurodivergence (Autism/ADHD) in children, adolescents and adults.
Aviv is unique in that clients engage in therapeutic services in a farm and nature setting. If you are a client who is looking to engage in therapy outside of the office, this is a great space for you! Currently accepting in-person and telehealth appointments.
