Mary Melissa Springstead, MA, MFT, PsyD, Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena
I am an MFT with experience teaching, tutoring and providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents and their families. While I work with clients of all academic levels, I specialize in working with those who struggle academically due to a learning disability and other educational barriers. Along with individual and family psychotherapy, I also offer school consultation and observations. I find collaborating with teachers, school staff and other providers, my clients are able to have success in their academics and emotional/behavioral health.
Students today feel overwhelmed with all that is expected of them. Between academics, extracurricular activities, social and family obligations, students (and parents) feel burnt-out often leading to problems with depression, alcohol and drug use, relational problems, anxiety, etc.
If you're looking for balance, support with academics, and/or guidance through a challenging situation, call or email me to schedule a consultation!
