More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 19
State: CA

I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker in California with 20 years experience as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship issues (including couples and family issues), career issues, parenting problems, health issues, pet illness and loss, and various other concerns.

I have worked in various settings including an inpatient psychiatric hospital, outpatient psychiatry office, community mental health center, and a regular medical hospital setting.

My style is warm, interactive and empathic with no judgement. I employ a variety of approaches depending on your specific needs. No one approach fits every client.

I have met many clients who have suffered too long before seeking help, thinking that it would be weak to do so. Seeking help is a strength, not a weakness. Taking the first step towards change can be scary, but in the end it will be worth it. It will take some time, and everyone is different in how they walk that path.

I am here to support and empower you and look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I've really enjoyed working with Melanie. She is very insightful and she has given me some great tools to help me navigate through a tough break-up from a long-term relationship. She challenges me to work through my issues in a supportive way.
