Pleased to meet you

Hi! I am Melissa- adventurer, plant parent, listener, teacher, learner, loving the privilege to enter the world of clients.  Since 2005 I have been journeying with clients to find ways to unpack, heal and reframe their life stories.    


I work hard to create an emotionally safe space, allowing you to be vulnerable, make sense of life experiences and become a whole and joyful person. As a social worker in private practice, I provide services to children, couples, families as well as professionals in the workplace.
