Before returning for a Master’s in Social Work, Meleiana had spent years working in the field of finance, particularly with those planning and saving for retirement. It was then that she discovered she enjoyed working with people and looking for ways to support their goals. She became curious about relationships, both with herself and with others, and began to think about joy and having a joy-filled life. She also wanted to work with others in more diverse ways. After some life challenges for her and some loved ones who benefited from therapeutic support, she decided to change paths to one focused on supporting mental health.
Meleiana has experience working with people of all ages. She has been a CASA (court-appointed special advocate) for children and adolescents in foster care, advocating for them as they transition back home or are adopted, and a school social worker at Nuames High School, helping teens as they navigate young adulthood, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, perfectionism, and family and relationship difficulties. She has also worked with and advocated for people experiencing domestic violence as a volunteer for Safe Harbor. Meleiana believes that all people are deserving of support and compassion, and she strives to provide the help they need.
Meleiana grew up in Hawaii and comes from a diverse background. She values a person-centered approach and is willing to incorporate a variety of modalities depending on what the client needs. She has been trained in acceptance and commitment therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness interventions, including learning to breathe, and utilizes the Gottman Method and emotion-focused therapy in couples and relationship work.
She uses a variety of physical, solitary, and social means of maintaining her mental health and she’s learned that she needs that diversity to stay well. She is Hawaiian, and her happy place has always been at the beach, which is a little difficult in Utah, but the beautiful mountains are helpful. Much of her physical techniques involve being outside hiking, camping, mountain biking, or running, while her solitary activities include reading and meditating. Time with her spouse, family, and friends is also imperative for feeling her best.
Meleiana believes that laughter is good medicine, and she tries to look for opportunities for humor and not take herself too seriously. “Life is often messy and complicated, and it’s easy to get lost in it. She believes we are all unique individuals on a journey to become the best versions of ourselves. She wants to support you as you find your way and as you work to discover what that means for you.”
Meleiana loves going to the gym, practicing yoga, and seeking out new restaurants. She is ambidextrous and can use chopsticks with her right or left hands. She reads fast and sometimes reads out loud to herself to increase comprehension, slow herself down, and enjoy the moment.
