Dr. Melissa E. Munoz Psychotherapy

As a San Diego Latina Psychologist, I work with children & teens, adults, and older adults who are looking to be supported and experience growth through major life transitions. I specialize in trauma, relationships & communication skillsets, grief/loss, identity & mood concerns, and self-compassion.

Hillcrest therapist, Now accepting new clients with immediate availability!

Let's shine a light on your inner resiliency!

I welcome your strength to this space and am so proud of you for taking care of yourself! The darkest hour sets before sunrise and growth through these times displays true courage.

Resiliency, reflection, and redesigning how you make lasting change is what I offer you as an experienced psychologist. I’m here to walk this journey with you.

Previous clients have shared that my collaborative, empowering, and genuine therapeutic approach has helped them reach their goals.

Through my work as a San Diego based Latina Psychologist providing teletherapy throughout California and in person services in San Diego, I have extensive experience working with military members (i.e., active duty, Veterans, and their families), professionals, students, and People of Color & LGBTQ+ individuals. 

In therapy, I integrate multiculturally grounded supportive and evidence based treatments.
“Dr. Muñoz is a consummate professional and psychologist. She has a genuine passion for helping her clients and her community. Her expertise covers multiple areas and she has the tools to help you become a better person. I would highly recommend her services.”
