My name is Melanie Galan and I have been working as a therapist for six years. Prior to that, I was a special education teacher. When I moved to California 10 years ago, I was not licensed to teach here so I decided to go back to school and become a therapist. Both my teaching and therapy work has focused on adolescents with emotional and cognitive struggles. I enjoy reading, making art, sewing, spending time with my family and my pets. I have two dogs and five cats!
