Sheyda Mia Melkonian,

Psy.D., PMH-C

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and to get to know me a little better. Making the choice to begin therapy can be a very difficult one and it is imperative that you find a therapist with whom you feel understood and heard. It would be my pleasure to speak with you to see if my therapeutic style would be a good fit for you. Please follow the link to the 'About Me' section to learn more about my therapeutic orientation and areas of interest. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Pregnancy and postpartum can be some of the most emotionally difficult times in a woman's life. Feelings of depression, anxiety, identity issues, and self-esteem are all very common. The good news is that therapy can help you address and work through these feelings. 



Do you ever feel like there are things from your past or personality traits that you have which are preventing you from being the best version of yourself? Through the process of therapy, we can work on facing those challenges together and improving your quality of life.


Do you or your child have trouble in school or other environments? Are you concerned about his/her academic skill level or their attention capacity? Please contact me so we can discuss the benefits of getting an assessment completed.
