Andrea Melendez is a Therapist based in USA. My areas of speciality include therapeutic practices. This profile is currently unclaimed; please validate the details are current when communicating with the mental health professional.
I have trained in a variety of mental health settings treating both individuals and couples. These settings include hospitals, community and private-based clinical sites. My training includes working with elite (e.g., university) athletes. I believe that therapy is an essential way to understand how the emotional and physical bodies are connected. Gaining insight of the internal self, and learning the mind-body connection, guides us to acknowledging and accepting our actions, reactions, and behaviors. I am committed to evidence-based practice and have been trained in cognitive behavioral therapy. I also offer an integrated approach by including interventions such as motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and other techniques that incorporate an individual’s strengths in treatment. I assist individuals by helping them to move forward and by providing a safe environment to voice emotions, increase awareness and accept problematic thoughts and/or behaviors. I will work with clients to help them develop positive, more adaptable thoughts and behaviors. Whatever you are struggling with, I am here to help you achieve your goals.
