Melissa Grohs, MA, LPCC
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
It's not easy to reach out for help, it takes courage and strength to do so. We all go through difficulties in life and sometimes a little perspective and guidance is necessary to help us choose the right path. I come from the belief that we are experts of ourselves, yet sometimes we need someone to help uncover our strengths and gently guide us back to center. I work from an integrative perspective which means that I utilize a variety of orientations and therapies, based on your individual needs and/or situation.
Much of my focus in my practice is in helping individuals and couples navigate their relationships as well as supporting and empowering women who find themselves admidst a life transition. This often involves supporting clients coping with grief and loss, which can come not just from losing a loved one but also by letting go of different phases/stages of our lives. Other areas of expertise include working with self-compassion, improving coping skills, depression, anxiety, worry & stress.
My office is located in the heart of Alameda - just across from South Shore Shopping Center.
If you have questions about therapy or if we would be a good fit, please reach out. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
