Introduction: Parents, you've noticed a change in your child. As a parent, you want your child and family to feel secure, confident, and safe – from bullying, social media, societal standards, the pandemic, and unfortunate family circumstances. The truth is… Events and people have affected your child in a way that matters to you, but getting them to open up and divulge all that is happening within them is possibly VERY challenging. [Note: No insurance is accepted at this time. Virtual sessions are also available if located outside of California or outside of the US.] Sometimes the most confident child still can’t find the words to say… Certain feelings, emotions, and traumas live deep within your child. Even when they want to release it, there can be extreme difficulty in doing so. These feelings can affect almost everything ranging from your child’s schoolwork to behavior, friendships, family dynamics, overall wellness, and more… That’s where I enter the picture. As a Wellness Counselor, I work with your child at eye level. Without the daunting need to earn the approval of authoritative teachers, doctors, and even psychologists, children and young adults have the unique ability to share and open up with someone who gets it. In our sessions, your child has the floor to talk about their dreams, aspirations, fears, and even unfortunate events that they’re hiding inside. Each session adheres to the understanding that diagnosis of you or your child is not the goal. The only issue of greatest concern is their well-being. With your child’s needs at the center, they soar. It’s an unbelievable feeling for a child to receive this type of support. With the pressure off and the need to receive approval put aside, your child can release, let go, and share. The weight released in each session is often monumental, with clients leaving feeling affirmed, capable, and one step closer to gaining balance again. Let’s hop on a brief call. Typically, within the first 15 minutes, we can determine if one-on-one sessions are the right step for your child. I will always make a recommendation based on my expertise and your family's situation. ___ Hi, I’m Melissa, a Wellness Counselor to your child or young adult. I received my Master's from Northwestern University and have a unique gift of connecting with children, building rapport, and helping them feel safe to open up. This work is more than a career, but a calling. Each child gets their own unique support based on their personality, needs, and family goals. I equip the children with tools to better communicate, express their emotions in a healthy way, and also support the process of healing after a traumatic event. These counseling sessions are led with mentorship at the center, where your little one is met at eye level and has the floor. They’ll be heard, understood, and counseled in the areas needed most. The stress, overwhelm, mental and physical issues can begin to shift out of focus as your child gains confidence, a sense of safety, and feels secure in their future. Let’s hop on a brief call. Typically, within the first 15 minutes, we can determine the next right step. Parent Support Sessions are also available to help equip parents with helpful tools + establish a parenting plan for more peace in the home.

My 11 year old daughter enjoys every session. She has improved her attitude, behaviors and even improved her grades. Right after the first session she felt heard and in safe space. I also enjoy the parents check in since it provides us parents some guidance to be part of our kids success.

Amazing work being done with my two sons that I placed into therapy with the understanding that it would be for them to have an outlet and learn good methods for dealing with any emotional issues they may have now or face in the future. Wonderful therapist who listened to the parents but places the mental well-being of her patients as the primary focus. Very thankful for this phenomenal therapist!

I reached out so that my 12 year old son could have an additional person in his corner and Melissa was a God send. She really helped him to rationalize his thoughts and work through some tough feelings. He really looked forward to their sessions together. She checked in with me and really cared about what I was seeing outside of the sessions. She is just all around great at what she does.
