About Us

Hello, my name is Melissa, and I founded Creative Design Therapy, a full-service design, project management and renovation company in 2012. After renovating three homes with frustrating delays, budgeting miscommunications, and scheduling issues, I decided to start a design and renovation company that would break the mold!

Our Goals:
1. Deliver dream homes & spaces on time and on budget.
2. Create unique spaces that look good, but are highly functional.
3. Provide highly detailed & transparent quotes that include all material costs according to the level of finish you specify. No more contractors throwing one giant number at you!
4. Make the renovation process for you, the client, to be as quick and painless as possible.

About Melissa:
Melissa holds Bachelor of Applied Design, and minored in Marketing from Ryerson University, where she won multiple industry sponsored awards. When Melissa’s not dreaming up her client’s homes, offices or restaurant spaces, she’s trying new restaurants, traveling, cooking, entertaining or creating something new.
