About Melissa Flatla

Pronouns: she/her
Thank you for considering me in your search for a therapist. It is my belief that the most meaningful therapy is grounded in the safety and fit of the client-therapist relationship. From the first point of contact, I endeavour to create a connection and to build a strong therapeutic relationship based on compassion, safety, and trust. 
I strive to maintain a practice that is authentic, transparent, and honouring of the courage it takes to arrive in therapy. My approach is integrative and often draws from both person-centred and narrative methodologies, which allows the therapeutic process to be tailored to your specific needs. I strive to create a warm and inclusive space that fosters collaboration, discussion, and self-exploration.

I work with youth and adults (ages 10+) seeking support with a variety of questions or concerns including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships and attachment, self-esteem, stress, grief, anger management, identity, school refusal, ADHD and neurodiversity, chronic pain and illness, and identity.  I am proud to be a connected and committed therapist competent in serving the needs of the LGBTTQ+ community and their allies.

I wish to engage you in co-creating an environment that invites a sense of empowerment, in sharing your stories, and the exploring of new considerations through self-compassion. It would be my privilege and pleasure to accompany you along your therapeutic journey.
