Hello! my name is Melissa and I would be honored to listen and engage with you in your story. Regardless of what you are going through, I believe that there is healing in having the support of another along the journey. Life is full of challenges, leaving you feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, anxious, or grieving loss. Therapy can be a daunting journey to embark on, but I hope that my office can become a safe and comforting space, where we can work together as you learn new boundaries and coping skills, heal current and past wounds, and become more confident and grounded in who you are.

You're smart, but you've always wondered why you feel awkward and different. Why is it so hard to talk to people, or navigate office politics, or cope with stress? You've heard about adults diagnosed with ASD later in life, and it sounds familiar. Adult Autism Assessment & Services is a neurodiversity-affirming practice specializing in autism assessment for adults, especially women, trans, and nonbinary folk. We also provide ADHD and sensory processing assessment. Many of our clinicians are neurodivergent themselves, so we understand. After a lifetime of "pretending to be normal" t's OK to finally unmask and be your true self.

**Currently taking new clients** I believe that everyone has the ability and strength to make the changes they desire in their life. Some people need a place to explore how to do this, and this is where I can help. I see my role in the therapeutic process as providing a non-judgmental space to help clients clarify what changes they want to pursue, and guide them as they find their own strength and self-determination to make those changes. I use a client-centered approach with some CBT techniques. I have a degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and am a member of the ACA, following their Code of Ethics.

I specialize in work with individuals who experience Anxiety Disorders (OCD, General Anxiety, Phobias), Depression, Insomnia, Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as those with medical or complex presentations (e.g. depression and diabetes). I believe therapy must involve a human connection and have come to find a good sense of humor is critical to the work done in therapy. Without a strong therapeutic relationship, it is nearly impossible to make progress. However, within the context of a collaborative, supportive environment, CBT tools can be very useful. When CBT tools are not helpful, eccentric evidence-based practices may be.

Exploring the ways in which your life events and experiences have impacted you requires curiosity and courage. If you're feeling stuck and wondering how to move forward, know that you don't have to do it alone. Our time together is a place to connect, feel safe, open up and be heard. Life can get messy, complicated and painful; the first steps in healing is deciding you want something different and want support to accomplish your goals. My intention as your therapist is to empower you to feel more at peace with the ups and downs of life to sustain personal wellness.

If you've ever watched a good movie or seen a compelling drama on the stage, you know the story doesn't resolve itself until the second act. Just as "life imitates art," you may experience situations, thoughts, and emotions road blocking your "second act." I would be honored to help navigate life choices amidst these roadblocks through my Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

If you are feeling overwhelmed by distressing emotions or stuck in a loop, you are not alone. Often, when we begin to notice that our mental health needs tending to, we might feel more isolated than ever. Or we might believe we deserve to suffer on our own. If 2020 has taught us anything, hopefully we can now see that caring for our mental wellbeing is a necessary and universal pursuit. So, whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or grief, now is the perfect time to start therapy.

I'm currently accepting new adult clients for individual therapy. Welcome, I'm glad you've stopped by. If you've been struggling lately to feel good about yourself, your relationships, manage your mood, or you've noticed past trauma is sneaking its way into your current life, things can quickly become overwhelming. It can make it hard to get through the day-to-day grind, and that can leave anyone feeling unfulfilled and even hopeless.

Working in education for over 12 years has given me a great gift. I have been able to access diverse populations, ages and needs. Working with children and adolescence is absolutely life-giving. I believe behavior is a form of communication, that ultimately children want to do well, but sometimes they lack the self-awareness and skill necessary to thrive. I am honored to get to be the one to support them in their journey and equip them with the tools needed for growth and success socially, emotionally, spiritually and educationally. I am also working with men, women and families. Everyone deserves to feel seen, valued and heard.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
