Are you seeking a compassionate space to navigate a difficult time? Do you desire both empathetic listening and gentle encouragement to grow? If so, we might be an ideal fit on this journey together. I'm Melanie McGinn, a licensed clinical social worker. With over 20 years of experience working with individuals and families, I've had the privilege of hearing countless stories and helping individuals navigate through some of life's most challenging transitions and losses. I specialize in helping clients work through anxiety, depression, career transitions, family and parenting challenges, and grief and loss. In our sessions, you’ll find a compassionate listener who genuinely values your story. I believe in the power of truly hearing you—your fears, hopes, and everything in between. My approach is warm and empathetic, providing a safe space where you can feel understood and supported. While empathy and understanding are at the heart of my practice, I also believe in the importance of challenge and motivation. I will gently but firmly encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, confront difficult emotions, and make positive changes in your life. My goal is to help you uncover the strength and resilience within you, empowering you to navigate life’s challenges with courage and endurance. One unique aspect of my practice is my love of books and poetry, which I often integrate into sessions by recommending readings that complement our therapeutic work and provide additional insights and comfort. I earned a bachelor's degree in English and a Master of Social Work from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2008, becoming a licensed therapist during my career in human services. My approach integrates Person-Centered Therapy with Mindfulness-Based and Narrative Therapy techniques. If you're going through a difficult or confusing time and feel that I could accompany you and offer guidance on your journey, please reach out. I'm here to listen, support, and help you uncover your unique path toward peace.

I believe that everyone deserves to feel connected, to be understood and feel worthy of abundance and love. Who we are has purpose-it has value. Opportunities for growth are all around us and it is up to us harness the role of the hero in our own personal stories. I offer a warm space where you can contemplate what is meaningful to you and to process through past narratives/traumas and core beliefs that hinder your ability to create a life that you love. I have had incredible opportunities working with adults, children, teens and the elderly in various settings as a clinician. I utilize a strength-based, mindfulness and solution-focused approach to therapy. I am also versed in the framework of astrology as a tool for self-understanding for those that are interested in this modality. We all possess the ability to improve the quality of relationships that we have with the world and most importantly the relationship that we have with our selves. I would love to connect with you if you are looking for a heart-centered therapist to support you on your journey developing strength, self-worth, and resilience.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Wellington area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Wellington therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Wellington due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Wellington may not take health insurance, some in the state of Colorado may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Colorado you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Wellington, Colorado working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Wellington above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT).

You can also try a Wellington therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Wellington therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Wellington therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Wellington therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Wellington therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Wellington counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Wellington.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Wellington licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Wellington, Colorado can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Wellington has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
