Hello! This is Melissa Pedersen, local Marriage, Family, and Child Therapist from San Pedro, CA. I am a down-to-Earth therapist using a simple, straightforward approach to the treatment of my clients. I like to employ humor whenever possible and appropriate because laughter can also be healing. My goal is to create a collaborative relationship with my clients so they feel relaxed, comfortable and at ease with the therapy process. Ultimately, I assist people in communicating better with others, and in developing a greater understanding of themselves.
