About Melanie Grieco's service

Welcome! I’m Melanie, and I have been a therapist for about 5 years. During this time, I have come to see that nothing– whether thoughts, behaviors, or emotions– is outside the realm of the human experience. You are not alone. I consider it an act of courage to pursue therapy, so I would not judge anyone who put their faith in me and trusted me enough to share their private thoughts. I deeply believe in this work and the power of a supportive, therapeutic relationship to help you better understand yourself, find new perspectives, and learn useful skills for change. Like any relationship, I find that communication is most helpful. Everyone may want something slightly different from therapy, and I would like to tailor your treatment to what you most need. I have a Master’s in Social Work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have experience with a wide variety of presenting problems, and have primarily worked with college students and young adults in my career. My goal for most everyone I work with is to help reduce shame and improve self-compassion, while also helping to remove barriers in the way of motivation to make changes. I have experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. Thank you for taking the first step by reaching out. I look forward to talking with you and walking beside you on your journey!
