Welcome/ Bienvenidos! My name is Melissa and I am a registered psychotherapist. I am currently located in Pasadena and Encino, CA, but also offer Telehealth sessions. I received my B.A. from California State, Northridge in psychology with a minor in gender and women studies. I then went on to pursue my M.A. at Pepperdine University where I received my degree in clinical psychology with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy.

In my practice, I believe in providing quality mental health care to everyone regardless of race, color, gender, or economic status, while also being culturally competent. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I take pride in being a First-Generation Latina who went on to pursue higher education which makes me passionate about helping others who are also first-generation. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to learn more about themselves and their path to a healthy and healing life. I am dedicated to creating a safe and judgment-free environment and helping individuals find peace, heal their inner child and past traumas. I specialize in working with teens, adults, families, and couples. Depending on a persons needs, I like to use a holistic and mindfulness approach while integrating different therapeutic modalities including CBT, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, The Gottman Method, Somatic Therapy, and EMDR. I also have experience in working with trauma, grief, anxiety and depression, PTSD, mood and personality disorders, and ADHD.

Please feel free to reach out if you decide to move forward with your therapy journey, and I look forward to meeting with you.
