Melissa Nedza - from Couples and Family Wellness Center

  • Are you experiencing low confidence and feel the need to please others?
  • Have you been feeling unmotivated, irritable, and not yourself and are unsure of who to talk and what to do?
  • Have you been experiencing chronic pain and/or medical conditions that prevent you from enjoying life and being present in your relationships?

It takes courage to take that first step to decide to see a therapist. If you are feeling uncomfortable in your body, I offer an interactive approach to therapy in which you can learn ways to calm down internally and feel more at ease on a physical level.

I utilize somatic interventions that help facilitate nervous system change and emotional regulation so you can feel calmer and a greater sense of safety.
