Melissa Dewey is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) practicing at the Holistic Heart in Warwick, RI. Melissa also has her Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) in Clinical Mental Health and completed a two-year certification in Core Energetics.
Melissa works with young adults (18-24) and adults (24+) who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, academic problems, relationship difficulties, and trauma. When working with clients, Melissa uses a holistic approach to integrate mind, body, and spirit. Melissa focuses on the way clients manage their emotions and energy and incorporates physical movement to release emotions that may be blocked. Melissa incorporates mindfulness and subtle somatic awareness practices as well to provide further awareness and integration.
