Melanie Marin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Union Square neighborhood of New York who specializes in anxiety, depression, life transitions, complex trauma, women's issues, and LGBTQIA+ concerns. Melanie enjoys working with adults of all ages who seek to understand and overcome self-defeating patterns, access inner resources and strengths, and connect to a deeper sense of self.
Melanie utilizes her background in psychoanalysis to facilitate self-exploration, to promote healing from past relational trauma, and to unblock the path to creativity and positive change. Melanie also draws upon her experience with mindfulness practice to help clients develop greater mind-body integration, self-acceptance, and groundedness.
Through deep and empathic listening, Melanie seeks to create a safe, supportive, compassionate space in which unresolved internal and interpersonal experiences can freely find expression and eventually find their way to resolution. Since therapy is essentially a relationship, Melanie sees it as an interactive, collaborative process that promotes insight and healing. Melanie is currently offering online sessions.
