Approach Therapy is proud to partner with Lyra Health to offer in-person and online individual and couples therapy.

Lyra is an employer-sponsored benefit* that connects employees, spouses/partners, and their dependents with mental health providers who can help with stressors or mental health concerns.  At Approach Therapy, we are happy to be part of Lyra’s network of group practices that share a commitment and passion for evidence-based mental health. Clients are matched to therapists based on therapists’ expertise. Both Dr. Melanie Chinchilla and Avni Panchal provide services to clients using Lyra benefits.  If you are interested in working with an Approach Therapy therapist using your Lyra benefit, please log on to the Lyra Health portal to get matched with a clinician based on your specific situation and concerns. At Approach Therapy, we see clients who are new to therapy and tons of people who have prior experience working with a therapist. If you have any questions or want to learn more about a specific therapist before you schedule a session, feel free to email us at
