Melyssa Nelson, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
By giving yourself the gift of therapy you can begin finding ways to invite support and healthy change into your life and into your relationships. Make the decision to achieve more life satisfaction and balance by taking the time to challenge yourself to grow and heal. I am aware that seeking the help of a Psychotherapist is a very personal and very sensitive journey. I have confidence, however, that working out your thoughts and challenges with the help of a Therapist can add to your life the clarity and insight that you will need to face each hurdle.
I work interactively with my clients using empathic listening, providing feedback and my own insight. I offer reading resources and psychoeducational tools to clients who are interested. My orientation is both Brief Solution Focused and Psychoanalytic in style. I offer both short term and open ended therapy to my clients.
I have a strong belief in the process of psychotherapy and the healing relationship between therapist and client. My background is strong in corporate coaching, relationship communication counseling, and independant depth therapy. I look forward to working with you.
