Melanie Budde, PsyD
- EMDR Therapist
I am a bilingual psychologist with experience offering individual psychotherapy services to children, adolescents, adults, and families. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and transitional age youth, building foundational skills and strategies to help clients navigate life challenges. II am fluent in both English and Spanish and use a very client centered approach, taking into consideration individual and cultural differences, and implementing the most appropriate treatment options for every client. I like to incorporate mindfulness-based techniques into my practice, to help clients gain practice in developing self-regulation and relaxation skills to aid in their ability to manage challenging or stressful situations.
I earned my Psy.D. in Clinical Forensic Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I completed my predoctoral internship at the Ottawa Carleton District School Board in Ontario, Canada and am currently working toward licensure. I have experience providing behavioral interventions in the classroom, individual and family therapy with school aged children, individual therapy with transitional-aged youth and adults in school and community mental health settings, and substance abuse treatment. I love integrating EMDR therapy into my work with clients.
