About

We all develop a set of skills to cope and survive when we are young. This is the beauty of our adaptiveness and our innate pursuit of love, safety, and connectedness. However, for most of us, there reaches a point in life where the skills that once allowed us to survive are now preventing us from living the life we imagined. If you are feeling disconnected and discontented with yourself, your life, and/or your relationships, do not lose hope. It is possible to identify and adapt the patterns that you developed to keep yourself safe and attached.
The focus of my work as a therapist is to help people identify and change unproductive personal and interpersonal patterns, overcome shame, heal past hurts, and manage anxiety. I utilize my professional and personal experience, humor, and warmth to create a strong collaborative relationship with my clients to cultivate the connections and life they desire.
My passion is found in helping each person I have the honor of sitting with to feel deeply connected to themselves, their loved ones, and to their life. If any of this resonates with you please do not hesitate to contact me or check out my website. www.melissafinalditherapy.com
