Melissa sees both adults and teens in her Colorado Springs counseling practice. Using a holistic, relational approach that attends to the whole person and her clients’ experiences, she creates a personalized plan that meets her clients where they are with respect, compassion and acceptance.
Melissa helps her clients to work through their triggers and past traumas. She develops a relationship with her clients that facilitates both her and her client to determine what issues to work on and when. She also believes in teaching her clients a lot of tools they can use almost immediately to cope with the stresses of everyday life.
Melissa specializes in AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which work to change the wiring of your nervous system that allows you a greater scope for compassion, courage, and clarity instead of fearful black and white thinking.
Melissa also uses components of mindfulness, embodiment Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist her clients in better understanding their thoughts, values, beliefs.
