Melanie Mahady

M.S.

We all desire to be loved and accepted, to feel purposeful and valued, and to be able to look in the mirror and like what we see. But when we experiences painful or traumatic events, our ability to give and receive love – to ourselves or to others – can be impaired. In order for us to heal, we need to process and release our emotional pain and move past our traumas so we can live a life that is rich, full, and rewarding.

My goal when working with clients is to help them achieve a sense of well-being that permeates every area of their lives – physical, mental and emotional. Together we explore their family and relationship history, reframe their thinking, untangle disordered or unhelpful patterns of thought, and achieve mental clarity while safely processing traumatic events in order to help them achieve emotional stability. We work together to set goals that reflect their highest selves, and celebrate each and every success along the way, resulting in a client who is healthy in mind, body and soul.

I offer women, teens, children, couples and families an all-natural approach to healing that can assist them in overcoming emotional struggles, undesirable behaviors, and disorders of the brain. I believe in effective strategies, such as EMDR therapy, that take into consideration a person’s mental, physical, and emotional health. I am a strong proponent of natural and alternative therapies being used in conjunction with traditional practices. I believe firmly in meeting my clients wherever they are in their journey and allowing them to set the pace while safely guiding them through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.
