Melisa Ruelas

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in adolescent therapy, individuals, couples and family therapy. I have maintained my private practice for over 10 years. I received my Bachelor in Science in Child and Adolescent Development from California State University Fullerton and my Master in Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University.  Before becoming a therapist, I have had the pleasure of working with children in multiple educational settings. I see therapy as a way of helping clients cultivate genuine compassion for themselves. My focus balances an exploration of the client’s past strengths and present goals.
