Have you realized something isn’t working in your life and you want to make a change?


  • You’re going through a difficult time, like a big move or a new job

  • You’re struggling with internalized expectations and trying to fulfill them

  • You feel your stress going out of control, but you don’t know how to manage it

No matter what, you feel like you’ve dug yourself into a hole, and now you can’t get out. You might have tried therapy in the past, but never felt heard or validated. It’s a scary place to be, and now you’ve gathered up the courage to take that big first step.

Are you ready to manage stress and anxiety?

Think about what life would be like if you were able to cope with your negative emotions and find strategies to work through your problems. How would you feel if you could navigate life’s stressors on your own, instead of falling through the cracks? The kind of progress you can make if you approach your feelings in a new light, and find a therapeutic method that works for you.
Being here is a step in the right direction. You are coming closer to a point where you want to make a change. Perhaps you decided it might be helpful for you to talk to someone about what’s been going on. If so, you are finally ready to stop avoiding the problem and start dealing with what’s been bothering you and causing your anxiety. You are ready to take the next step.

Approach therapy.

Started by Dr. Melanie Chinchilla, Approach Therapy helps young professionals and POC because it’s run by a diverse group of therapists who see the world through your eyes. Dr. Chinchilla’s background in a variety of settings and working with a broad array of clients has helped her gain a greater understanding of mental health treatment and how to best help her clients. She started Approach Therapy to impact real change on her community, where clients could see themselves reflected in the staff.

Our team of therapists come from a variety of racial and cultural backgrounds. They are here to connect with you and take away the mystery surrounding therapy. They will offer you a safe, validating space and allow you to set your own boundaries. We invite you to learn more about us and see which of our therapists would be the best fit for your specific needs.

Now is the time to take a more active role in your life.

Stop doing the same thing and getting the same results. You can learn to manage stress, navigate your anxiety, and learn better ways to cope with your feelings. You can put yourself back in the driver’s seat, take back control of your life, and deal with what’s been bothering you. Change can happen organically, but how much longer are you going to wait for change to happen on its own?

We aren’t afraid to speak up.

The world can be a scary place, especially for women and People of Color. Whether you’re out in public, in your place of employment, or even at home, you can encounter everything from microaggressions to acts of racial violence, sexual harassment, and other serious problems. We also know that in a world full of white therapists, it can be difficult for People of Color to find a validating voice, which makes it more difficult to get to a therapeutic place.

At Approach Therapy, we aren’t interested in staying silent about these issues. We want to be part of a push for societal change and equality for all people, fighting against the systems and groups that try to maintain the unequal systems of oppression already in place.
