About Melena Ornelas

We all have our ups and downs in life and sometimes life can feel really harsh when we least expect it. Thoughts and memories from your past may be intruding in your current life. In therapy, you will learn to stop the panic, stop the racing thoughts, feel less sad and process the parts of your past that continue to effect you today.

I work collaboratively with individuals, drawing on techniques, like EMDR, to assist you in moving beyond the symptoms of your struggles to uncover the underlying causes of “stuckness” or suffering.
My style is empathetic, nonjudgmental, direct, and honest. I believe you are the expert on your own life and each of us has the wisdom and the answers we seek within ourselves. My goal is to help you recognize your own inner-light and healing capacities so you can experience living beyond limiting beliefs and patterns that have been holding you back.

Who you invite to the role of guiding you in accessing the wisdom within is an important choice. I would be honored to support you as you move through the process of healing and as you navigate through life's difficulties and opportunities.
