Therapist in Tarrytown, New York Melinda Zappone, LMHC, CCTP2, LFYP

Melinda Zappone, LMHC, CCTP2, LFYP

I have just completed Level 3 Training in Relational Life Therapy and advanced to Level 2 Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) with membership in the International Association of Trauma Professionals. I have a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling am currently licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in New York (LMHC). I have completed LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training, Somatic Experiencing certifications and several Trauma Informed Yoga/Care certifications. I have been dedicated to giving back and worked on community projects for 20+ years as well as developed a free resource company Everyone Needs You Always, ENYA. This ENYA mission works towards democratizing therapy so that the tools can be used outside of the ability to pay for professional help.

I take a strength-based and relational/person-centered approach in my role as a trauma therapist, trauma educator, writer, coach and project leader. This means I highly value what I call full body listening. I listen to individuals by logging the sense of what they say as much as the content. I come curiously to others and say “let’s work together to understand this life you’ve been living and come to a wiser knowledge of who you are”. The approach is relation, collective to what all humans deserve and personalized. I feel we stand in desperate need of a new paradigm, no one needs fixing, we need tools to learn ourselves. The lessons our pain may hold when we moved on too quickly.

The relational perspective I take means I am not an expert, the question is “How are we as a team going to approach the personal classroom you hold inside?” The shift from individualistic to relational thinking applies organizationally and on a systems level. I am a collaborator and value communicating from a ecological perspective. We are all on this planet together. We are individuals who understand ourselves more completely in relationship. So it all matters.
