Zahira Melendez Therapy, LMFT-A
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. " - Nelson Mandela
Hello, my name is Zahira Melendez. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFT-A), and I'm happy that you’ve found your way here. I know that searching for the right therapist can be time consuming and daunting, so let's cut to the chase. I believe that you are unique and therefore, your therapeutic experience should be customized to your needs. That is what I do; I will go where you want to go. For those areas that you know you need to look at but it's too difficult to do so, we’ll slow it down and take it at your own pace. I will never want to take you to a place that you can’t handle. We will always do this together - I am here for you.
I draw from multiple therapeutic models and concepts to address stress, anxiety, PTSD, relational attachment, negative beliefs, repetitive behaviors and more using various techniques including body psychotherapy, EMDR, mindfulness and attachment modalities. For couples therapy, I incorporate Relational Life Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy interventions to help you resolve conflict, improve communication, restore intimacy and recover from infidelity.
I am bilingual, fluent in English and Spanish.
The office is located in downtown Austin.
Let's chat and see if we are a good fit for each other.
