Melissa Chosid is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Missouri. She received her Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Family Institute at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. She works with clients on issues including relationship conflict, barriers to intimacy, peaceful separations, parenting challenges, recovery from infidelity, and communication skills.
Melissa's approach is highly informed by her training in Internal Family Systems (IFS). IFS helps clients to identify, explore, and form connections with different parts of their internal experience. Melissa has also completed Levels 1 and 2 in The Gottman Method, a model that uses research-based strategies and tools to help couples successfully manage conflict.
"We are relational beings who crave closeness, but so often we get in the way of our own deepest desires by protecting ourselves. I help partners move away from blame and help them examine their own protective strategies that stand in the way of intimacy."
