The mental health therapists at Pearl Health Center take a collaborative, compassionate, and trauma-informed approach to care. They are well-versed in a variety of treatment approaches, including Attachment Theory and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and are committed to helping clients uncover strengths, build coping skills, and begin to develop a path towards emotional healing. Given that our therapists work in an integrated health clinic, they are able to consult with other providers on site (e.g., acupuncturist, chiropractor, naturopathic physician, and primary care), which allows them to create a truly holistic experience for the individuals they serve.

The mental therapists are licensed clinicians who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to Pearl Health Center. Previously, our therapists have worked in a variety of settings, including community mental health clinics and residential treatment facilities for at-risk youth, and are trained in a variety of treatment modalities.

Techniques I Use


  • Experiential External link

    Our therapists are skilled in increasing clients' self efficacy by deepening their connection to their emotional experiences. Experiential approaches seek to focus on the here and now, highlighting connection between the brain and body and learning new ways to experience the self.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    Our therapists have experience in helping clients identify the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and how they can influence their mental health. They also assist clients with developing coping skills to make positive changes, and create a path towards a more fulfilling life.

Issues I Treat


  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    Melanie has extensive experience working with at-risk youth and families, using the Collaborative Problem Solving approach to reducing family conflict.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    Healthcare at the Pearl Health Center is always safe and affirming. Our providers are passionate about advocacy and use a collaborative approach to therapeutic services and community resources.

  • Adjustment Disorder External link

    Life can be unpredictable and stressful at times. Our therapists can help clients navigate through these turbulent phases, and get to a place of increased resiliency and inner strength.

  • Anxiety External link

    A little bit of anxiety is not a bad thing, however when we experience too much anxiety, it can be overwhelming and crippling. Our therapists can help clients cope by getting to the root of the anxiety and learning a variety of techniques aimed at reducing stress and suffering.

  • Depression External link

    Feeling depressed and intense sadness can be so difficult and isolating. Our therapists can provide comfort and hope during these challenging times by helping them process their feelings, rekindle meaningful connections, and create a more joyful and fulfilling life.
