Melissa Krechmer



Melissa is committed to the co-creation of a protected and empathic environment. She believes in the importance of developing a foundation of wellness to safely explore one's inner world in order to better navigate the world at large. Melissa embraces the chaos and complexity of individual and collective identities working with individuals to make meaning of and navigate life's journey.
