Text Ms. Meli to schedule your Free Initial Session:
I am a Mental Health Counselor and now a CARC (Certified Abuse/Addiction Recovery Coach). I have been in the “helping field” since receiving my B.A. in Psychology in 2009 and then went back to receive my Master’s in MHC in 2014.
I went into the field because of my personal life experiences. I am a trauma survivor of physical, mental, and emotional abuse. I grew up in single parent household with a mother suffering from Bipolar Disorder. She went untreated and I was a victim of child abuse until leaving the house at 17 years old.
I use my personal history as a strength to learn and grow from tough situations.
I know how to manage and live with PTSD, OCD, anxiety, and depression.
Today, I love my life and who I've become. I live in New York with my two dogs and travel to see new places every chance I get. I am living proof that the life I had is far from the life I have.
My past is a story that now I am not afraid to tell. I live peacefully in the present; I am happy; I am grateful; I am thriving; I am motivated and I am motivation. I am an optimist and a realist, and see either the reason or the lesson of why things happen.
Coaching, as opposed to therapy, is focusing on the present and the future. I would be honored to be on the healing journey with you to get to a happy and healthy place together.
