Melanie Fortin

I see individual adult (18+) clients who are experiencing grief and caregivers who are taking care of their terminally ill loved one or family member with dementia. I also see couples for pre-marital, marital, and relationship issues.


I can help with anxiety, stress, self-esteem, depression, and life transitions as well. Click on one of the four boxes below to learn more about what I can do for you. Then, contact me to schedule a free 15-minute consultation. 

About me

I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate who provides in-person sessions in my office in Southington, CT.


I also offer telehealth sessions if desired. I incorporate the knowledge I have learned through my program here in CT, the additional training I have pursued, my lived experience with grief, and my roles as a mother, wife, and caregiver of ill loved ones.
