Melissa Lake, Licensed Associate Counselor
Melissa is a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC). She wholeheartedly believes that a felt sense of safety is paramount for healing. Her goal is to create a safe and nonjudgemental space where people can tell their stories, gain a deeper understanding of and compassion for themselves, and re-engage with their stories in a new way. She approaches therapy from a relational and attachment-based perspective, with the understanding that often, what is hurt in relationships can be healed in relationships. She brings a trauma-informed lens to her clinical work.
Melissa is an EMDR-trained therapist. She has training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and has an Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed perspective. Melissa holds a trauma and resiliency certification from the Arizona Trauma Institute.
Melissa‘s personal interests include being in nature, yoga, learning new things, spending time with her husband, their two sons, and their wives, and their college-aged daughter.
