I want you to know that you can feel better. The effects of patterns like depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and people-pleasing don’t need to rob you of a life lived well. Soul-sucking patterns like these gobble up your time, money, physical energy, thoughts, and the ability to focus on yourself. Life feels hard in this place. The good news is that pain is motivating! You’ve likely tried a bunch of things to feel better, but now your inner wisdom is whispering to you to find outside help for the inside pain, and here you are. If this resonates with you, I’d love to work together!
Our work will focus on your unique needs, patterns, preferences, and hopes. Some goals you’ll achieve quickly. Others need the magical ingredients of time, an updated skillset, and most importantly, a new stance of radical self-acceptance. Believe it or not, you don’t need to complete your goals before you begin to like yourself ;)
Lastly, success in therapy depends on the quality of the relationship between you and me, which is why I offer a 50-minute risk-free consultation for new clients. If either of us decides that it’s not a fit, the session fee gets waived. However, if we choose to team up, you pay for the session, and as a bonus, you end up one step closer to your goal!

I believe that every individual has set of strengths, skills, beliefs, and values that are unique to them, but sometimes when we are dealing with certain things in our life, it’s hard for us to remember the tools we may have to at our disposal to help us through the challenging time. My hope is that we can work collaboratively to highlight these strengths and skills and furthermore come up with new strategies and skills to help you grow and move forward in life.
You may not know all your strengths, or even where to begin to tackle what you are facing, but I hope that through my client focussed approach I can create a non-judgemental, open, honest, and safe space for you explore what brought you in. I like to take an eclectic approach to therapy, and being flexible to meet your needs is something that I take pride in. I draw from various therapeutic approaches to find a unique path that works for your journey.
Finding a therapist that resonates with you is also an important part of the mental health journey. Reaching out is often the hardest part. At Unstuck Psychological I offer a 50-minute risk-free consultation to see if I can be a good fit for you. I look forward to meeting you!

Because so many of our emotional wounds are created in the context of early relationships with others, it makes sense to me that the genuineness, attunement, unconditional love, and healthy boundaries modeled within the therapeutic relationship can be so healing later in life.
I take great pleasure in providing people with these potentially “missed experiences”, because the world is simply a brighter place when we feel seen, heard, understood, and SAFE. With your permission, I will challenge you, and we will courageously delve into the heart of certain matters. Together, we’ll work to align the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of your being to foster a greater sense of wholeness.
You’ve maybe come to understand just how flawed we humans are, but did you also know that we’re deeply hardwired for connection? That’s exactly why being a therapist brings me so much joy! I’m so grateful that I get to spend my days connecting with people (hopefully you!) in meaningful ways, as a trusted companion on their journeys of healing and personal growth.
There isn’t any wearisome or awkward small-talk on my agenda; instead, I aim to make the most of every moment together.
Oh, and don’t worry if your hope is in limited supply right now. I have a plentiful stock of it from which you can borrow, thanks to the many positive transformations I’ve had the privilege of witnessing over the years!

Hi, I’m Melissa!
We are each the author of our own life story, and at times it can feel like we don’t know how to write the next chapter.
Perhaps you are experiencing patterns of unhelpful thoughts or behaviours, overwhelming emotions, or just can’t figure out what the obstacle is. Whatever the case may be, please know that you are not alone. I’m here to support you as you write your next chapter. It would be my privilege to work behind the scenes, encouraging you as you navigate the next (or possibly the first) step in your healing journey. To be the Alfred to your Batman, so to speak! As Alfred often provided Batman with an alternate outlook, dedication, and genuine care, I’m here to offer you a similar commitment.
It’s okay if you don’t know where to start- leave that up to me! I’m here to provide a safe place and a listening ear, allowing us to form a genuine connection as we overcome your challenges. Together we will create a custom therapy plan that will fill you with hope and excitement for the future.
I know the idea of therapy and finding the “right” therapist can feel overwhelming. I have good news! The Unstuck risk-free consultation is one full session with me; and if we don’t hit it off, then the session is free!
If you’re ready to take the next step, I’m here to take it with you.
