Melissa has previous experience providing in-home and outpatient therapy to individuals, couples and families. Melissa has additional experience working with parents and with children ages 0-4 and incorporates an attachment-based lens believing that our early relationships can lay the foundation for how we experience ourselves and others. Melissa provides a gentle, strength-based, and relational approach to her work with clients. Melissa finds value in how communal, cultural, and familial factors shape who we are and how these pieces can also help support us in healing. As a white cis-gender therapist, Melissa recognizes it is crucial to the therapeutic experience that she works to create a safe space for people of all cultural identities, gender identities, and sexualities.

Sarah has worked as a RN with Face to Face’s obstetrics (OB) program since 2019. She has a background in mental health nursing as well as in eating disorder treatment. Prior to becoming a nurse, Sarah was a teacher. She made the transition from teaching to nursing knowing she would still very much be pursuing her passion for empowering people through education–just in a different setting. Sarah is a proud feminist, so naturally she loves working in women’s health and fighting for reproductive justice. In her spare time, she enjoys camping, traveling to any and everywhere, and spending time with her family and friends. Fun fact: She also studied marine biology for a while in college and is obsessed with the ocean and all the creatures within it.

Ginny grew up all over the Minneapolis/St Paul area, but now you can usually find her in the kitchen, both at SafeZone and at home. She has always loved making people smile by creating delicious meals! She has also long been about encouraging individual growth; she raised a now 20-something daughter who is on the autism spectrum. Professionally, she spent the last nine years helping empower individuals with barriers for Goodwill EasterSeals Minnesota, focusing on personal development. During that time, she went to school to earn an Associate’s Degree in Human Service. Additionally, she spent two years without a permanent home as a young adult, and was actually a client of SafeZone over 20 years ago. She is hoping to use the knowledge gained from these experiences to assist young people to realize and utilize what they really have to offer this world!
