Hello, I’m Melissa

Pasadena Therapist Melissa Muller

Melissa E. Muller is passionate about working with individuals and families seeking growth, a deeper sense of life purpose, and who desire to know and experience their full potential. Her gifts lie in her curiosity and genuine care for others, their stories, and their need to tell them. She connects with people, and she is able to instantly make them feel at ease, understood, and strengthened by providing a place to voice and own their “stuff”.



Melissa‚Äôs empathy shines through in her ability to state the hard things, to say the comforting things, and to ask questions without leading. Her love for the human experience, and for the connection/bond that is formed in a therapeutic relationship is made evident in each of her interactions, reflections, and questions. Melissa’s passion for being in tune with others is most clear when one sits down to talk with her for any length of time.

EXPERIENCE

My range of experience includes counseling at a substance abuse treatment center, church-planting overseas, and conducting research on neuro-feedback and its effects on ADHD and anxiety. I have been in private practice since 2012 and truly love my work. I don’t take this for granted as I know many struggle to find something meaningful that also provides for them financially.

These experiences differ in many ways, and each has been a meaningful step along the way in my own journey of personal growth. I recognize that each client also has their own unique growth process.

In addition, I started ADHD COLLECTIVE with my husband Adam, which provides ADHD coaching.
