About Me

Thank you for the information you provided. It is the first step in what I hope will be the beginning of a journey of healing and self-discovery. Whether you are brand new to therapy or have a had past experiences with therapy, either positive or negative, I am committed to providing a space where we can work together to hep solve some of the issues that may have you feeling "stuck." I am a licensed therapist in The State of New York with 10 years of professional work experience. A lot of my experience has been working with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds on issues such as interpersonal relationship issues, stress/anxiety, and life changes/transitions, as well as working with those struggling with addiction or family members or loved ones that are impacted by addiction. I also have a lot of experience and understand the unique challenges that face members of the LGBTQ community. Regardless of your background or challenges you face, I have a very simple approach to therapy which centers around the belief that you are the expert when it comes to your life. I want to look at your strengths and coping skills and see how we can capitalize on these strengths to help resolve some of the issues or conflicts in your life. We can also look at the way you deal with these issues and perhaps introduce some new coping skills that will complement your existing ones. Again, I'm really happy that you took this first step. I am genuinely excited at the prospect of working with you, but if for any reason you don't think that I'm a good fit for you, please reach out to another licensed professional for help.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jefrey Meletio. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by J.E. on May 13, 2022 after therapy with Jefrey for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I have only worked with Jef for three sessions, but find those three sessions to be more effective than the same number of in-person sessions I had with a therapist previously. Jef’s style is not to passively sit back and wait for me to talk-it-out for 45 minutes. Instead, he asks pointed questions to dive us into a topic which I find incredibly helpful in removing the mystery from therapy sessions. Jef has a wonderful ability to build trust and offer empathy, while pushing and challenging me to dig deeper and look harder at myself. I would absolutely recommend Jef to others.

He’s doing amazing so far.
