Melissa Petrone

(MS, LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in the States of Colorado. I have over 20 years experience working in the mental health field. Over the years I have worked with children, families and individual adults. In my current practice, I focus on adult clients (ages 18 and up). Many of my clients are affiliated with the military by either being active duty, dependents or veterans. It is a true honor to be able to help and give back to those that serve. I also very much enjoy working with civilians and being able to help them achieve their goals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and grief and loss. I also helped many people who have experienced Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Postpartum Depression

My counseling style is supportive and motivational. I believe in treating each individual with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It is not my job or intent to judge, only to help you reach your goals, potential and be true to who you are.

Reaching out for help is not always easy but necessary for change. I am offering my hand to guide you through your journey. Call me today and take the first step towards improving yourself and your life.

I look forward to working with you!

Melissa has been very responsive and supportive. I feel that she understands what I'm going through and is non-judgmental and sensitive while keeping me focused on the real issues. Our sessions never feel rushed and she always offers very considerate responses to my messages. I would definitely recommend Melissa as a therapist.

Melissa has been a great help during upsetting times with her valuable advice and support. Although, I felt I could not change anything the way I wanted it to be, she convinced me that this is not the end but only a beginning to something new and probably better. I would definitely love to get help from her again. I recommend her to anyone in need of any kind of help.

Melissa Petrone has done an excellent job of helping me regroup after a conflict. She was patient and willing to reframe things for me. She was reliable and I felt like I could trust her to be fair and honest with me after only a few messages were exchanged. I can highly recommend her.
