Melanie is a clinical counselor and art therapist providing bilingual therapy services to the community in Kansas City. Melanie has experience working with a range of populations to address issues of trauma, family distress, and immigrant issues.

Melanie’s experience working with clients from a range of backgrounds is what inspired her to run for local office, because she realized that successful mental health treatment requires a supportive and affirming community. She is running for Lenexa City Council for Ward 3, to bring empathy to conversations from members of our community, multicultural considerations when working through our agenda, and evidenced-based approaches in community development.
