About Me

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!

Because of my sessions with Melinda, I can no longer conceive of a time when I did not participate in therapy. I feel much better after these last few months.

Melinda is kind, open, and very easy to talk to. Talking to her feels like talking to your best friend who understands you and gives the best advice. During a session, she shares invaluable and creative tips and tricks to cope with various situations. It is easy to relate to her and apply the strategies at home and work.

Melinda has been incredibly helpful and is an amazing therapist. Not only is she very easy to talk to, she offers a space that is very welcoming and comfortable. In just a few sessions, she has already been able to help me a lot and has given me great resources to help me in different areas of my life. I highly recommend Melinda and am grateful that I’ve been able to work with her.
