About Me

Melissa Miller Garcia, LCSW

Pronouns: She/Her/Ella

Are you terrified of judgment in therapy because of a "non-traditional" lifestyle, relationship, or job? Are you exhausted by the demands of a system that never seems to give you a break? Are you experiencing feelings of guilt and shame of starting this journey because growing up your concerns were minimized or taking care of yourself was viewed as selfish?

I am a Bicultural, Anti-racist, Social Justice-oriented, Latine therapist with a focus on supporting folx in navigating the stress and trauma experienced in a system that was not created for us. I am here to help you unpack the complex emotions that arise when living in an identity that's "othered". I have experience working with diverse issues and populations including Depression, Trauma, Anxiety, First-generation, Cultural/Racial Identity, Systemic Oppression, Immigrants, Black/Indigenous/People of Color (BIPOC), Polyamory/Non-Monogamy/Open Relationships, Life Transitions, LGBQ+ (Sexuality),Transgender Allied, Insomnia/Sleep, and Chronic Health Conditions. 

I make it my goal to foster a trusting, relational, and empowering environment for the people I work with so they feel in control of their healing. I value creativity in my sessions since therapy is not a one size fits all approach. I use a mix of evidence-based therapy modalities (while being mindful of cultural factors) including Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. You have the power to decide what tools you'd like to use and practice! I want to invite you to work with me to make sense of your inner world and leave our sessions with feelings of clarity, calmness, and support. 

I completed both my Bachelor’s of Social Work and Masters of Science in Clinical Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin’s Steve Hick’s School of Social Work. I have experience working in healthcare, academia, international social work in Mexico, administration, immigration, and nonprofits.
