“I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13... hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.”

Melissa has worked in the human services field since 2008 and joined Headway in November, 2014. Within her role at Headway, Melissa has the opportunity to support first-time parents prenatally until their child is four years old. Melissa incorporates an attachment-based lens, believing that our early relationships can lay the foundation for how we experience ourselves and others. She feels that every family has a unique set of skills and strengths and she hopes to be able to draw from these in her work with families. She feels that building positive relationships, acknowledging cultural and familial values, and using empathy and compassion are key components to the work that she does with families.

Outside of work, Melissa enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring and trying new activities in her community, painting, and going to the lakes.
