Valetta Melanie Kirchner

L.M.F.T.

My professional practice of 15 years provides an extensive and varied experiential base that informs my pragmatic and eclectic approach to treatment. I choose from a variety of psychological schools tailoring the therapeutic process to each individual’s specific challenges and needs while nurturing awareness and self-compassion. I believe each person deserves a holistic approach that integrates psychological factors with overall health, social environment as well as economic and physical circumstances. I view presenting symptoms as coping strategies and the therapist’s role as facilitating the fine tuning of some strategies and the exploration of more effective solutions for others. I aspire to provide dynamic therapeutic services that reflect professional best-practices in a comfortable and non-judgmental setting while striving to be welcoming, genuine, transparent and empathetic. Most people find they connect with me easily. I invite you to see for yourself.
