Melissa Lester

Therapist Details

I am a 59 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, Stress, Grief, Loss, Aging and more.

Since 2014, I facilitate a Coming Out Later in Life group since 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 have.

My approach to therapy combines psychodynamic (insight-oriented therapy) and feminist theory with several body-based somatic approaches such as Meditation and Mindfulness, EFT Tapping and Acupressure, Progressive Counting, Hypnosis 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! Please come and see us at PRIDE!

I offer both In Person / In Office and Telehealth Therapy to women residents of Georgia. I look forward to connecting with you.
