You Don’t Have to Bear the Weight of Sadness, Grief, and Depression Alone Anymore

You feel close to a breakdown, stuck in depression, grief, and despair. Some days you overeat, or have an extra glass of wine or two, or sleep too much just to avoid the suffering you’re going through.

In a quiet moment, you know you’re someone who’s been misused her whole life by the people around you. You know you’re a highly sensitive and empathetic woman who’s been trapped in a web of very broken people.

It’s not your fault; you’re not a victim and you don’t want to be a martyr. But you don’t know how to stop taking on other people’s stuff.

So while you overachieve in your career and are accomplished in the external world, internally you’re left with a lot of loneliness and feeling numb. Sometimes you wish you just wouldn’t wake up.


I Can Help You Lean Into Your Feelings Without Losing Yourself

Hi, I’m Melanie, and I love working with smart, strong women struggling with depression to understand how to overcome their fears and frustrations, and learn new ways of managing emotional pain.

We’ll figure out what’s going on, and what you need to begin feeling better. One of the most powerful ways to do that is to understand how your emotions, thoughts and behaviors are intertwined. When you learn how to make friends with your emotions, manage your thoughts, and explore new behaviors in a safe setting, your life will begin changing for the better.

In balancing the science of therapy with the art of healing, I’ll create an innovative program for you that sets you on a path of success from the very first session.

My compassionate, creative approach weaves together my ability to hear below the surface of the words, advanced degrees, years of specialized training and professional experience, along with my own personal healing of some dark, difficult experiences.

My clients usually work with me once a week for an average of 8 to 12 months. As we work together, you’ll be getting tools for long-term success, and learning and using strategies and techniques that will serve you for many years.

You’ll work hard for sure. But it won’t all be horrible and terrible! I love sharing ideas about good books and films, and laughing together once in a while.

My hope for you is that you’ll feel safe every step of the way.

Please know that I welcome ongoing conversations about making therapy the best experience it can be for you. ‘Cause that’s why I’m here.
