Melissa Heinrich, PhD, LLP

Melissa Heinrich has been helping individuals work through challenges since 2011. Melissa intentionally creates a safe and empathic environment where the relationship between the client and the therapist is of the utmost importance. She views relationships as the source of both problems and healing. Because of this, she works hard to help the client explore relational patterns and past experiences to gain self-awareness and to create potential for change.

Melissa’s education and training emphasize multicultural, developmental, social, and relational factors. She received training in sport psychology, trauma, grief, LGBTQIQ concerns, and women’s issues. Melissa uses a relational approach to therapy that focuses on intentionally building a healthy working relationship. Her approach honors the context of the client and therapist to process difficulties in the context of social systems. She uses warmth, empathy, and humor to support client growth and change. Melissa’s private practice includes work with individuals, athletes, couples, minorities, LGBTQIQ+, and college students.

Melissa is licensed as a Limited Licensed Psychologist in the State of Michigan.
