My Approach

Brenda    P Melgoza, LMFT

Therapy wasn't a concept I encountered until my early 20s, when I felt an inner longing but couldn't quite put it into words. As a survivor of complex trauma and a child of Mexican immigrants, seeking help wasn't something that came naturally. In our culture, we're taught to keep our problems within the family, and there's a saying: "Calladita te vez mas bonita" or "Silence looks prettier on you." We turn to our relatives – tios, tias, parents, or abuelos – rather than seeking help from strangers.

My early experiences with therapists were disheartening. They felt cold, detached, and judgmental – not the kind of support I needed. Determined to make a difference, I set out to be the opposite: warm, compassionate, empathetic, and vulnerable. I strive to create a safe space where you can open up without fear of judgment. Let's walk this journey together with empathy, understanding, and honesty.
