Counseling Alameda

Melissa Grohs, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

& Psychotherapist

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.

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!
