Melissa Galvin


 

Melissa (she/they) believes that therapy should provide a supportive, empathetic, and nurturing space for clients. Ultimately, she recognizes that therapy can be hard and can unearth a lot of emotions and experiences. They aim to utilize a collaborative, trauma-informed, and individualized therapeutic approach to best support you in exploring how you are feeling and where you want to go. Some of their main goals are to ensure you feel heard, deepen your awareness, and continue to grow session to session. More importantly, though, Melissa’s main goal is to support you in reaching your goals in therapy. Her therapeutic approach is predominantly person-centered, relational and strengths-based. She views your work together through an intersectional and holistic lens as she believes how you both move through the world is an integral part of your work together.

Melissa’s professional background includes many years as a mental health professional in suicide prevention and crisis intervention, with a particular focus on supporting LGBTQ young people, as well as some experience working with children and teens with an autism diagnosis and with adults in a group home setting. Their Bachelor’s degrees are from Monmouth University and in both Sociology and Psychology. Currently, she is attending New York University studying to earn a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and Wellness and obtain clinical licensure. As such, she will be working closely with an experienced Clinical Supervisor throughout your time together at The Soho Center. You can expect to learn more about this in your first session, but essentially, it just means double the support! She looks forward to meeting you.
