Humanist at heart, Melanie seeks to approach every client she works with in a curious, unbiased way. Graduating with her Master’s degree from the University of Central Florida in 2003, she has worked in various practice settings with diverse client populations. She came across an EMDR training by way of a private practice owner whose practice she was working for at that time. A skeptic, she decided to attend the initial training as provided by The Institute for Creative Mindfulness.
She left the initial EMDR training shocked and awed by the rapid efficacy and dignity EMDR provides all clients who seek to heal unresolved trauma; by the respect the modality naturally lends to every client’s unique set of strengths.
Driven by the above, Melanie has since pursued further training with EMDR. She is now a consultant in training with Institute for Creative Mindfulness, and is an EMDRIA approved EMDR therapist. When she is not working, she enjoys traveling, hiking, spending time with her dogs Spooky and Toby, meditating, taking care of her houseplants, and reading.
