Melissa Soo Hoo currently has a waitlist for new clients.
Update: Taking new patients; telemedicine only. Are you unhappy about circumstances in your life? Are you at a loss for how to make things better? Sometimes life can be hard and feel out of control. I am here for you. We can work together to understand you and your life, how to fix what's going wrong, and how to prevent or minimize problems from happening again. I help adults experiencing problems in their lives including depression, anxiety, worrying, insomnia, stress, and sadness. I also help with adjustments to major life changes or handling problems in a personal, romantic, or workplace relationship.
My approach is warm and professional. I focus on the interaction between your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and how they affect your health and wellbeing.
Many of my clients see improvements after just one or two sessions, even those who have never been in therapy before. Please contact me by phone or email to set up an initial consultation.
