About

"Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit." ~B.K.S. Iyengar * * * A healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body and a healthy soul. My goal is to partner with you in looking at your life-story, and identifying and overcoming the blockages to a peaceful way of being. Psychotherapy is a wonderful opportunity to find balance and restore a sense of wholeness and perspective on our purpose in life. I provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space in my practice for this to occur.
I am a trained and licensed expressive art therapist and counselor with over 20 years experience. My practice integrates traditional psychoanalysis with expressive therapy to resolve conflicts and crises. My techniques include DBT, mindfulness therapy, narrative therapy, and Jungian dream analysis. I am a certified yoga instructor and offer yoga therapy.
I treat individuals of all ages, and have expertise with issues of depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. My work with children involves art, play and sandtray therapy. My therapy dog Nica is on-hand as a sweet and quiet observer in our sessions. Visit my website at: www.melissagiuttari.com. Also available for Skype sessions.
