My Approach to Helping

Hi there! My name is Christine R. Melendres and my pronouns are she/her/siya. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist in the state of California, and the Founder of Sweet Mango Therapy Group, Inc. I was born in Iba, Zambales, home of the sweetest mangoes in the world confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records.

My family and I immigrated to the United States from the Philippines when I was 3 years old. I am the eldest granddaughter from both sides of my family, the first to graduate college in the United States, and the only licensed therapist in my family. I grew up in Daly City, California, and have been involved in community work since the age of 12. My interest in the mental health field stems from my own immigration experiences and bicultural identity.

I specialize in helping high-achieving, young professional women of color (particularly those who identify as Asian American) who struggle with anxiety find clarity and reclaim their self-worth. My approach is culturally sensitive, person-centered, trauma-informed, and warm. I am also a brainspotting practitioner and use interventions appropriate to your situation. I have 10 years of experience working in various clinical settings including hospitals, outpatient clinics, and a group home for homeless pregnant women in crisis. I have also helped hundreds of individuals and families in the Bay Area, and have extensive experience facilitating retreats, workshops, and national conferences. Some fun facts about me: I enjoy playing with my two young children, watching comedy shows with my husband, listening to podcasts, and indoor cycling.
