About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a master's degree in Clinical Psychology. I have been working as a therapist since 2013.

I have primarily worked with teens ages 13-19 in the last 7 years. My goal is to help teens feel seen, heard and figure out what their goals are for themselves. It's so hard being a teen these days and so much pressure, it's important to have a place to feel free to talk about what's going on.

I have experience working with different ages, ethnicities, SOGIE and socio economics. In my time as a therapist I've worked with a wide range of.concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, and communication issues.

My main focus is to create a space to feel heard and supported. I start with a Client Centered approach to develop the connection and help you feel safe.

I look forward to working with you!

Melinda Miller has been a great fit for my daughter and is easily available and responsive to all messages. You would be lucky to have Melinda as your therapist.

I like Melinda’s listening skills. I feel supported and can have open dialogue with our judgement. Also like the activities she provides me. The more activities/ journaling, the better

I really enjoy meeting with Melinda, she is of Christian faith as am I and I enjoy incorporating the Bible/ The word in with my therapy. I also like the fact that she checks in with me weekly to see how I am doing. She is invested in her patients and their growth.

Melinda is very responsive, very caring and not afraid to confront you on things she feels like you are avoiding. She challenges you to tackle your problems and gives you so many tools as well as worksheets to help track/ manage whatever you need help with the most. She is so kind and caring I truly look forward to every session. She has made seeking therapy not such a scary word or thing to do.

Work with me!
