Liz Melchor


Liz Melchor is a writer in San Francisco who has always been obsessed with how people—including herself—interact with this world. She has worked as a substance abuse counselor, trained as a psychotherapist, and completed graduate degrees in both psychology and writing. While she is coming up on a decade sober, she is still a solid drinker, only now of seltzer and coffee. Tweet at her if you need any self-help book recommendations (she has read an embarassing amount).
