Hello! My name is Melissa Karatay, I am a ABA and psychotherapist at Sandbox Therapy Group. I am currently licensed as a LMHCA and am working towards full licensure in WA state. I have been working in the mental health field for the last decade and have been practicing as a therapist for the last two years. I have experience with a wide range of individuals and am very excited to continue working with people here at Sandbox. As a therapist, I am most focused on attachment and relationship in all kinds of interpersonal arenas (family, social, romantic, etc.) including the relationship between myself and my clients. It is important to me that my clients feel accepted, safe, understood, and cared for. I believe that it is within this type of relationship that the hard work of change is most likely to occur successfully.
