Melinda is a registered Social Worker with over 8 years of experience as a therapist. She completed a masters degree in Clinical Social Work at The University of Calgary and during her studies she placed an emphasis on learning about the impacts of trauma on individuals and families, the role of the therapeutic relationships in recovery, diversity and inclusion, and anti-oppressive practice. In addition, she has specialized training in trauma resolution utilizing Somatic Experiencing and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

Melinda's approach is grounded in her belief that relationships and social engagement are integral to our experience of ourselves and the world; that cultivating curiosity and awareness is essential in change; that our bodies are wise, are programmed for healing, and need to be acknowledged and included in order to process our experiences; that we all have a longing for meaning and purpose; and that pain is a part of the human experience but suffering does not have to be. It is her view that therapy is an exploration of difficulties and suffering, a celebration of coherence and success, an opportunity to enhance personal awareness, to integrate new understanding, and is a joyful process.
