Melissa Lester

Therapist Details

I am a 57 year old cisgender female therapist specializing in Women's Issues since 2005. My areas of specialization include Trauma Resolution, Emotional Eating and Binge Eating, LGBQ Issues and Coming Out Later in Life, Relationship Issues, Anxiety, Depression and Stress.

I facilitate a Coming Out Later in Life group - currently online - (since 2015) for Women who are curious, questioning or navigating shifts in their sexual orientation. Please visit my website or email me for more information about this group. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.

My approach to therapy combines psychodynamic (insight-oriented therapy) with several body-focused and neurologically based approaches such as Meditation, EFT Tapping, Progressive Counting and other evidence-based trauma resolution methods.

I am deeply committed to the LGBTQQIAA+ communities and have previously served as this organization's Vice President, succeeding in getting us to PRIDE ATLANTA on an annual basis!

I am currently providing Telehealth Therapy to residents of both Georgia and Florida. I look forward to connecting with you.
