"Life is not a problem to be solved, nor a question to be answered, life is a mystery to be experienced."
ABOUT THERAPY WITH MELISSA
Are you feeling that life is filled with stress, or feelings of isolation and disconnection? Are you struggling to find deeper meaning and purpose in life? Are you ready to make a change? If so, you've come to right the place.
Therapy with me may be a great place to start, if you are:
Questioning how you got here again
Seeking to find greater understanding and awareness of yourself
Wanting to live more intentionally or find meaning in your life
Striving to enhance meaningfulness in your relationships
And yet, beginning therapy can feel complicated. You may want something different in life but also feel like you don't want to leave your comfort zone. We are creatures of habit and often want things to stay the same. It is often easier to live in the familiar, as painful as it may be, than to act on the desire to change. Eventually the negative thoughts, emotions and behavioral patterns we have always felt safe in, no longer serve us. I believe the desire to find a new way to live grows stronger than the fear of change.
I help individuals and couples like you bring awareness to the underlying patterns that have long driven their reactions, behaviors, and decisions. I help them to face difficult feelings of fear, sadness, and anger that lie beneath the surface. Becoming more conscious rather than acting from habit or fear allows them greater freedom. It allows them to take responsibility for their lives and to live in the present, as well as to connect more deeply with themselves and others.
My therapy approach provides opportunities to critically reflect on your life, explore new ways of living, and become who you are truly meant to be. Therapy with me can help you:
Find solid ground in the midst of overwhelming emotions
Feel at peace with yourself and your past
Create healthy, loving relationships
Break out of cycles & make choices that support your wellbeing
Learn to live in the present
Develop agency and support your dreams
Find healing and make peace with old scars
I create a safe, sacred space for healing, one that allows you to face this fear, explore the depths of who you are and what you want, and help you build a life and relationships that are more satisfying.
If you're ready for a change, or want to learn more, call or email me to schedule a free consultation.
