About Me

Hi, I'm Melanie and I am a Californian who studied in Colorado, Italy, Cyprus, and New Orleans to learn about relationship dynamics in different cultures. After terrible group and individual therapy experiences when I was 13, I committed to becoming the therapist I intuitively needed.

I am able to work with individuals and couples who currently live in California either on Zoom or in person in Carlsbad, North County San Diego. I offer 50-minute sessions, as well as, multi-hour intensive sessions.

I specialize in working with our attachment systems through body-oriented, imagery-integrated work. With most clients, I integrate EMDR with DARe, a somatic attachment approach to therapy, and parts work. I love teaching Polyvagal Theory and Window of Tolerance for organizing regulatory strategies.

In therapy, we will balance resourcing--strengthening what is going well in your life and introduce new nourishing practices--and processing past pains, present difficulties, and future fears. One of my favorite parts of therapy is reflecting to clients when they're mastering the skills with a renewed mindset. I look forward to hearing your story as you reshape the impact it has on your life now.
