How Psychotherapy Can Help You:
Melissa Divaris Thompson is an LMFT with a private practice in Midtown, NYC, offering holistic, integrative, and somatic psychotherapy. Her role as a therapist is to support clients in finding wholeness- body, mind, and spirit. She is an authentic, integrated, and a somatic psychotherapist who blends east and west ways of working. Melissa helps her clients feel more connected with their bodies and in tune with their needs and intuition. She brings mindfulness, compassion, and a grounded presence in working with her clients.
Melissa's passion is working with women in their 20's and 30's who are struggling with finding their authentic voice. So much happens during this time of life. Often people are left feeling anxious or depressed. Also during this time, different life events could be happening; job transitions, finding a partner, going through a breakup, getting pregnant or having a baby, or getting married. These are significant events in our lives and psychotherapy can help.
She studied at Integral Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. She is trained in a body-centered (Somatic) psychotherapy (Hakomi), Psychodynamics, and AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) which focuses on healing the wounded parts of ourselves through healthy attachment.
Melissa's work is informed by many years of studying Buddhist meditation, reiki, dance, yoga, and travel.
