What Type of Clients Do You Work With?
We specialize in working with women, young adults, teens, girls, and couples. We have extensive experience working with women and children that have experienced trauma and find that EMDR can be incredibly helpful in processing experiences and letting go of old patterns.
Melissa Mellon, LMFT also specializes in working with foster and adoptive families and is personally a foster/adopt mom.
How Long Does Therapy Usually Take?
Every client and situation is different. Some clients find that they get what they need in a few sessions and start to feel better after having a safe and comfortable place to get support. Other clients that have had a long history of trauma or a lifetime of unhealthy patterns may find that longer-term therapy may be most beneficial for them. We will work together to develop goals that are tailored and specific to meet your needs.
What Should I Expect At My First Therapy Session With an Orange County Therapist?
Finding an Orange County therapist who is a good fit is incredibly important for your therapy journey. We will spend the first session getting to know each other and work together to develop goals based on what you want to get out of therapy. At the end of the first session, we will decide if working together will be a good match. Before our first appointment, we will send you a link to our confidential client portal, where you will complete confidentiality and consent documents, learn about our practice, and tell us a bit about yourself.
What Type of Payments Do You Take?
We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards as forms of payment.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
If you are unable to attend a session, We ask that you give us as much notice as possible, but at least 24 hours notice beforehand. Without 24 hour notice, you are charged the full rate of the session.
