About Me

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to consider me as your future therapist. I am Melvin (Mel) Grier, a License Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Alcohol /Drug Counselor. I earned my Master’s Degree at the University of Denver in both Social Work and Public Administration.
I have over 43 years of experience working with young adult men and women, and senior citizens who struggle with the difficulties and pains of living. I have worked with aging issues, sexual addiction, substance use disorders (alcoholism and drug addictions) , anxiety, depression, trauma, Individual, couples and Marital issues.

I’m more eclectic in my approach with clients, which drawing on multiple treatment modalities to assist in their healing. My approach is to help the individual or couple in identifying their strengths and develop a specific treatment plan to meet the specific need of the client and accomplish their goals. I assist clients in exploring relationships among thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to aid in discovering self-defeating thought patterns leading to and self-destructive behaviors and beliefs.

Just a little about me; I am married, have 2 dogs, and no cats, originally from New York and I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 65 years. I am an semi-professional actor, cartoonist, and I love to travel.

I look forward to working with you on this journey and devising a plan to help in your healing and enhancing your life. Let’s talk
