Hi! My name is Melissa Donate, AMFT 123284/APPC 8910, my passion is helping people navigate the difficulties of life. I will guide and support you in a transformative journey of self-discovery, learning, and managing the daily stressors life may bring your way. Past trauma, learned behaviors and present stressors may keep you stuck and feeling like things will never change. My goal is to help you understand “why” that leads to your daily challenges as well as the “how” in creating a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
I am bilingual (English/Spanish) and I have provided mental health services to transitional youth and adults in diverse populations in the South San Diego area. My specialty is working with youth, adults, LGBTQ+, and underrepresented communities experiencing depression and anxiety by providing a Person Centered approach with CBT/DBT foundations.
Reaching out takes courage, know that I am here to provide a safe and judgement-free space to help explore what healing looks like for you. I believe connection and comfortability are building blocks to a great therapeutic alliance, give me a call to schedule a consultation.
