**Please Note: In response to the COVOD-19 Shelter in Place Order I am offering Zoom, Skype, and phone appointments to accommodate the needs of new and existing clients** Hello and welcome! My name is Melissa Pedersen and I am a local therapist in the San Pedro area. My goal is to provide all clients with a comfortable, confidential, and non-judgmental setting where concerns can be explored and addressed. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is an effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and other issues.
Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help address many types of issues including depression, anxiety, grief, anger and stress management. Along with general life transitions.
My experience includes a number of different populations such as children, teens, families, adults, senior citizens, couples and people of all ages who are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties.
