Melissa has 30 years of social service experience & has been practicing for 10 years providing art therapy for a wide array of emotional symptoms & life crises. Her theory of practice is humanistic. She believes you are the expert on your own life and she will support you in making choices toward growth & change.
Melissa is a Registered Art Therapist. Although not all clients make art in session, her training in art therapy and other expressive modalities (writing, crafts, guided meditation with art, and music engagement) can provide a pleasant way to promote healing.
