Working with Dr. Jennifer Melo, Ph.D.

How do you approach the beginning of your therapeutic work together?

I'm curious to get to know you and your life story. I set aside ideas of how things are "supposed" to be and listen to you. With humor and warmth, I work hard to find a way for us to effectively make progress on your mental health goals so you can begin to feel and do better.

What do you hope for your patients once you’ve concluded therapy?

I hope you can take everything we have learned together and apply it in your life. I hope that the breakthroughs, hard times, and laughs from our sessions give you the strength and new skills to live the life you've always wanted.
