Melissa Dowd

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
California | Florida | Ohio
Pennsylvania | Texas

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist for the past 10+ years, I offer a modern therapeutic approach done virtually across 5 states. My clinical experience ranges from working with individuals and families ages 5 and up in school settings, private practice and a virtual healthcare platform. I have also contributed my clinical expertise to many online and print news outlets, such as USA Today, Authority Magazine, Men's Health, Huff Post and more.
In 2020, I joined PlushCare of CA, a San Francisco - based virtual healthcare startup, as the first Therapist hire and Lead of the Therapy Program. In my almost 3 years there, I launched PlushCare's psychotherapy practice, developed clinical processes, worked closely with the product and design teams to create a proprietary Electronic Health Records system, and grew the therapy program from one to 30+ therapists.

I'm thrilled to be back in private practice so I can focus on the work that truly feeds my soul: joining my clients on their journey of personal growth and self-development.

A Modern Approach to Teletherapy,

Tailored to Your Unique Needs

In a virtual setting, I offer therapy services to individuals and couples aged 18+

  • An assessment is needed to determine if teletherapy and/or my scope of practice is the right fit for your individual needs. If I feel in-person services are best, I will provide you with referrals​.
