Hi, I'm Melissa Pinn!
Treatment areas include:
• Autism spectrum disorders (ASD)
• Social (pragmatic) communication skills
• Behavior Challenges
• Self Esteem
• Executive functioning skills
• Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
• Adjustment disorders
I have had the privilege of working as a therapist for over 19 years in settings ranging from schools, non-profits, and private practice. I have advanced training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, executive functioning training, mindfulness practices, Social Thinking frameworks, interpersonal neurobiology and ACT. I believe people do best when they feel heard and have supportive people in their lives. I really love helping parents better understand and connect with their children in order to strengthen their relationships.
I take a collaborative, compassionate, strength based approach to help my clients launch a successful future- whatever that may mean for them. I love my work and am honored to share, play, learn, and grow with my clients.
I received my undergraduate degree from University of Wisconsin-Madison and my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Notre Dame De Namur University.
I am an outdoor adventurer and travel lover and a imperfect mom of 2 imperfect, loving children!
