Melissa Horowitz, LMSW - Psychotherapist

From a young age, Melissa has cultivated her calling to support others. She first became excited about working with children when she completed a high school internship as a preschool teacher’s assistant. Melissa continued on this path and obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, with minors in Psychology and Children’s Studies, at Washington University in St. Louis. Upon completing her externship in elementary education, she realized her desire to support children in achieving social and emotional growth—within the contexts of their families and experiences—that occur both inside and outside the school environment. 

Melissa's Approach: 

Melissa believes that psychotherapy at its best is transformative, creative, and valuable; it is a dynamic and collaborative process, one in which Melissa supports clients in gaining new perspectives to achieve goals and emotional growth. The framework that guides Melissa’s approach to psychotherapy is holistic, client-focused and relational. Melissa believes that all clients are the experts of their lives and helps them access the tools for growth already within them. She values developing a safe, non-judgmental environment, one in which clients can feel comfortable expressing their feelings, and takes an empathetic and warm stance. Melissa utilizes a strengths-based approach and pulls from cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, play therapy, family therapy, and talk therapy to support clients in facilitating growth and change.
