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. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to tailor treatment to the needs of each client.
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.
