Getting to Know Me

I’m Dr. Melanie Love and I’m a licensed clinical psychologist in New York and Florida. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University.  


My clients describe me as engaged, calming, and skillful at helping you feel immediately comfortable talking about what really matters – especially if that’s been hard before. From my background in creative writing and music writing, I bring to our work my interest in exploring the uniqueness of what it means to be you and how to find relationships where you can be your most authentic self. I believe that everyone has the capacity for transformative change when given the space you need to feel both truly accepted and challenged to grow. I look forward to creating that space with you.

My training experience includes:

  • Manhattan VA

  • Fordham University Counseling Center

  • Temple University Counseling Center

  • NYU Counseling Center 

  • The Jewish Theological Seminary Counseling Center

 My work is shaped by the following styles, in which I've received advanced training:

  • Psychodynamic Therapy

  • Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)

  • Relational Therapy

  • Humanistic/Client-Centered Therapy

  • Harm Reduction Therapy for Substance Use
