Therapist in California Melissa Simpson, LMFT

Melissa Simpson, LMFT

As a clinical therapist, I help my clients discover the root of their problems, process the underlying issues and develop a plan to overcome current obstacles which might impede progress.

I use an eclectic, holistic approach to therapy, tailoring each client’s treatment according to their individual needs and support them in their healing process. In my sessions with clients, I create a peaceful, compassionate and safe therapeutic environment so we can work together on the problems that have held them back from living a full and happy life.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California and my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California. In addition to talk therapy, I am trained in EMDR treatment which I use to process trauma and abuse, and I have found that this technique also helps clients without a history of trauma, to get unstuck when they feel trapped in unhealthy behaviors and to tackle negative thoughts, anxiety, etc. which can make life and relationships more difficult. I work with individual adults of all ages who are struggling with a wide range of issues including but not limited to anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship problems, social problems, communication issues, anger management, stress management, grief, loss, and adult survivors of childhood abuse.
