Melissa has been with Headway since 2015 and has worked in human services since 2007.  She is an experienced therapist who has worked in a dual-diagnosis adolescent treatment center, hospitals, in-home settings, and in day treatment with children with autism.  She works with adolescents and their families in a school based therapy setting helping adolescents begin to find insights into themselves and strengthen their skills to build confidence to succeed.  She uses DBT, art therapy, and behavioral therapy techniques with clients to help them recognize their strengths and be able to build on them in order to succeed and move forward with their lives.  "By working in the high school," she says, "I am able to effect change in my client's environment by allowing them to explore new possibilities and practice new skills." 

In her free time, Melissa enjoys running, crochet, games, and traveling.
