About Me

Welcome! My name is Melissa, and I’m a therapist seeing adult clients virtually throughout the state of Texas. I specialize in working with people who are ready to work through trauma and adult children of narcissistic parents. My approach is rooted in creating a safe and empathetic space for clients to explore and process their experiences. I work in collaboration with my clients to overcome difficulties, learn new skills, and unlock their full potential. I welcome all folx including those in BIPOC and LGTBQIA+ communities.
