MELISSA WEISEL, MSW, LCSW, MSM PH-PP
Owner, Clinical Director
I'm is a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist with over fourteen years of experience. I approaches therapy as a collaborative experience and welcome feedback to guide treatment. I often use the evidence-based practices of CBT, DBT, ACT, positive psychology, mindfulness-based stress reduction, as well as somatic exercises to alleviate symptoms of distress.
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Being highly sensitive can be a blessing and a curse. I consider myself lucky to have been able to channel this deep empathy for others into the work I do today. My background is in working in the areas of older adults, hospice, chronic illness, and disability, which has been expanded by doing clinical work for the past several years. I love working with individuals in transition in their lives and helping them find their voices. Overcoming generational traumas and healing the inner child is monumental and it feels very rewarding to be able to walk alongside my clients on those journeys.
What should someone know about working with you?
I expect therapy to be a group effort, and I aim to serve the client each step of the way. This means homework for those who need more structure and verbal guidance for those who do not. We will try many different coping strategies and exercises to see what works best and build your toolbox. Progress is a conversation about how things are evolving as well as ongoing screenings for symptom management.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in CEU training, coursework, and ongoing peer supervision to make sure I am always evolving my practice.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in finding one's truth, including challenging societal standards when needed and understanding the intersectionality of life. I am a humanist, feminist, and antiracist, and I believe in the sovereignty of individual expression and the pursuit of one's unique path toward happiness.
Nicole Salvetti , MSW, LSW
We all accrue wounds in the course of living. Finding the right therapist is the best way to find help to heal wounds. To support those who seek change, particularly in relationships, I take an authentic, non-judgmental approach that is free of trend-driven techniques. By providing a safe and respectful space that values and nourishes the healing process, clients can expect non-pathologized care. Given that conflict comes in many forms, my therapeutic approach is equally personalized to each individual's needs.
I work well with people who appreciate a confidential and integrative approach that is pragmatic and tailored to unique experiences. I assist individuals who are looking to learn new strategies to heal emotional bonds in order to feel safe, secure, and connected - I partner with clients who want to make positive changes in their lives.
