    Melody is an excellent therapist. She has handled my therapy with genuine concern and care, and she provides helpful guidance and feedback so that I can work on developing behaviors that are true to my best self. I trust her to challenge me in healthy ways to break my old habits and thought patterns so that I can live my most fulfilling life.

    Melody has been the missing link in my marriage. Her ability to connect and draw out is amazing. She is kind, sincere, and thoroughly equipped to help families and couples. We look forward to building a stronger relationship because of Melody.

About this pro

We all need to get "unstuck" sometimes. I offer judgement-free therapy for diverse, creative Austinites. I aim to help people thrive in their relationships, marriages, careers, holistic health, and personal happiness. You've exhausted your options but your relationship is falling apart, or you are overwhelmed by anxiety, pain, or emptiness. You are tired of living this way. Change can start today. I specialize in relationship counseling and couples/ marriage therapy. I support individuals and couples in areas of: relationship conflict & dissatisfaction, trust/ commitment issues, infidelity, communication problems, sex & intimacy issues, power imbalance, and extended family dynamics. You’re looking for an empathetic, relatable counselor that meets you right where you are. My therapeutic approach honors the strengths and needs of multicultural individuals & couples. Having lived in three countries, I have a deep appreciation for all forms of diversity including faiths, the LBGTQIA community, and subcultures. I have a particular passion for those that have been injured by religion.

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I always offer a 20-minute free consultation (phone/ in-person) so we can see if we're a good fit for each other. If so, I take time to listen to the client's issue and ensure that she/ he feels affirmed and understood. Afterwards, we will assess the problem, define measurable goals, and build a therapeutic plan together. The plan has to suit the client's values, beliefs, and lifestyle needs. Next, we get right to work and measure change as we move along.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I obtained my Master's of Arts in Counseling, and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA) in Texas and a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      As one that has navigated through rough waters, I can hold a non-judgmental space for you to come just as you are. There is no need to hold back or to censor yourself. Seriously! Earlier in my journey, I was an educator. With a passion for working with children and adolescents, I gained experience in schools and non-profit environments. Today, I help adults, adolescents, and couples flourish in their identities, relationships, careers, and holistic health. My approach is grounded in my pursuit for social justice and love of diversity.
