About Melissa Kate McIntosh, Ph.D.

As your psychologist, my intention is to support you in the development of a valued, meaningful life, one centered in joy and integrity. Suffering is an inevitable part of life and our work is not to avoid this, but rather to learn how to truly feel it. This process also applies in a willingness to feel joy. I work with children, adolescents, adults, both individuals and couples, families, and groups. I have an expertise in supporting individuals tap into their creativity.

My Approach

I take an open, honest, and non-judgmental stance when collaborating with you while providing a new relationship through which to explore your concerns. I believe authenticity and humor are critical components to effective treatment.

Professional Background

I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, CA. I held clinical positions at The Harlem Family Institute and The New School Student Health and Counseling Center. In 2006, I received my Masters in Art Therapy and Creative Development from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. As a licensed creative arts therapist, I have had a varied career working with children, adolescents, adults, families, groups, and communities in settings such as a cancer support center, a dual diagnosis homeless women’ shelter, an acute pediatric medical surgical hospital, an inpatient psychiatric hospital, and a behavioral K-12 school. After I received my B.A. in English from the University of New Hampshire, I lived in Scotland, Alaska, and Peru.
