Melinda Matney, LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Colorado with 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, severe mental illnesses, healthy sexuality, grief and loss, life transitions, as well as, career fatigue. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, and client centered. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, holistic, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and mindfulness. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I strive to meet you where they are in your journey.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Melinda was very helpful in my journey to regain Self-confidence, Self-Esteem and most importantly love for myself. The tools she shared with me were very effective in changing my internal negative talk as well as helping me identify and select the thoughts going through my head that helped me towards my goals. I’m just scratching the surface here, but Melinda is a great therapist who is as friendly and kind as she is effective at getting to the root of a concern or issue.
