She offers ongoing Hatha yoga classes at her practice as well as an 8 week Mindfulness Program. She has a group practice with 8 licensed clinicians working for her in the Raynham, MA office. Her holistic approach to healing started while she was practicing meditation at a Holistic Meditation Center in Burlington, VT. She also attended Thic Nhat Hanh’s retreat on Mindfulness Meditation in 1998 at the University of Vermont, on the full awareness of breath. Her practice in prayer and meditation led her to work for Catholic Charities in an outpatient clinic working with adults who suffered from an array of disorders, primarily post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and depression. Melissa has extensive experience working with children and adolescents, both home-based and outpatient. She utilizes the same holistic approach with more emphasis on their ability to use play therapy, art therapy, and gentle yoga techniques to enhance their internal and external expression of feelings. This process helps create overall peace of mind, understanding and balance to your life.  Melissa specializes in treating clients who have trauma and PTSD, child or adolescent issues, spirituality, relationship issues, marital issues, depression, anxiety or fears, ADHD, divorce, domestic abuse or violence, loss or grief, OCD, parenting and dissociative disorders
