My philosophy about therapy is that when you meet a client where they are, that they can achieve every and any goal that they could possibly think of. My experience across various levels of care allows me to help you navigate through unchartered waters and to be with you throughout the journey. In fact, it'll be my honor to do so.

I help men, women, and LGBTQIA+ adults explore who they are and who they want to be. I deeply enjoy working with those who have experienced complex relational or religious/spiritual trauma, those who live with chronic pain or illnesses, and those (yes, you) high-achieving, perfectionists, creatives & professionals. Whether you're coming to therapy for the first time or the tenth time, my goal is that you are able to leave our sessions encouraged, equipped, and more compassionate towards yourself and others.

As humans, we are wired to seek out pleasurable and passionate experiences, but often in this pursuit, something gets in the way of our enjoyment: shame, stigma, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues...the list goes on. I believe sexuality is a very important part of life, but often we experience mental and emotional struggles associated with who we're having sex with, how often, and how we do it. As a sex-positive and LGBTQIA+ allied counselor, I am passionate about empowering my clients to live their most authentic lives, free of shame, doubt, and the other things that get in the way of our pursuit of pleasure.

Hi, my name is Melissa and I would love the chance to hear your story and walk alongside you on your journey. As a therapist, I aim to be in your corner, creating a safe, dependable place to help you process, think outside the box, and feel supported through life's tough moments. I believe many factors impact who you are today (trauma, upbringing, culture, relationship influences, etc), but they do not have to determine your future. While counseling with me, we can get through your concerns together by identifying patterns and focusing more on your goals, in lieu of the things weighing you down and causing you pain.

My clients don't come to therapy to hear someone nod and agree with everything they say—that's not worth their time or money. They want real help. They want to know "what to do" and "how to fix it" because they're struggling with depression, severe anxiety, relationship problems, trauma, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, and other painful situations. They are looking for a true expert that they can actually talk to. I am a member of PSYPACT which means I can see clients in every state that is a member of PSYPACT and I'm also licensed in MA.

Are you wondering if your life could be more free, authentic, or beautiful than it has been? I’m here to help you get from “not this” to “this, instead”. My clients have described me as warm and grounding. I am comfortable holding steadiness during emotional moments as well as challenging your blind spots with kindness. I believe in the power of humor to soften the heaviness of our stories. My hope is that it is incredibly obvious how much I love my job and how wonderful it is to show up for you.

I believe in you. And I believe that everyone deserves to live a life full of meaning, purpose, hope, dignity and respect. We are all more than the worst things that have been done to us, and we are more than the worst things we have done. As a therapist, I create a space where it's safe to explore your story, and where you are encouraged to discover, grow, & give voice to your true self. Also, for those who are interested, I am able to incorporate my training as spiritual director to provide a non-judgmental space beyond ideology, that explores one's spiritual story, in order to provide full body, mind, and soul care.
