Meet Melissa Monahan, MA, LMHCA, NCC

Meet Melissa

We all know struggling is part of life but sometimes it feels like that’s all you do.  Times are hard right now but you don’t need to struggle alone.  You deserve to thrive and have a sense of purpose and dignity.

My approach to counseling starts with the relationship.  Forming a healthy, safe, and confidential space is the key to start the healing process. I use an attachment and neurological based approach to therapy.  So much of what happens inside us happens “behind the scenes.”  Using EMDR, EFT, Lifespan Integration, The Gottman Method, and SYMBIS I am able to help individuals and couples uncover the how/why and move forward from their stuck places.

When I’m not in the office you’ll typically find me with my husband and children on one of our Pokémon outings or geocaching adventures around Washington state.  I enjoy the outdoors and love running, biking, and swimming having completed several Ironman triathlons.
