About Zahira

Zahira Melendez- LMFT-A

Hello, my name is Zahira Melendez and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFT-A). My goal in therapy is to help individuals recover from past difficult experiences and enjoy healthier relationships. Past traumatic experiences hold people back and burden them with unnecessary anxiety, depression, illness and a myriad of other issues. Let us work together to break the hold of past experiences. I am bilingual, fluent in English and Spanish.

I hold a Certification in Brief Systemic Therapy from the
 Mental Research Institute and the Texas Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I have partaken in lectures and workshops on trauma with Peter Levine, PhD, on somatic adult attachment with Diane Poole Heller, PhD, and Internal Family Systems with Richard Schwartz, PhD.I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling form St. Edward’s University and a Bachelor degree in Computer Science from the University of Puerto Rico.
