Melissa Bartolomeo, LPC

Position
Licensed Professional Counselor

I graduated from Johns Hopkins University and Capella University with a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. Currently, I am licensed as a professional counselor (LPC) in Washington, DC and completing licenses in MD and VA. I am passionate working with all ages and have clinical experience working with individuals 5-30 years old in school and outpatient settings. I have worked with families of a variety of backgrounds and always looking to learn about other cultures. In addition, I have experience within the educational fields; specifically with urban youth and career transitions. I offer individual and group therapy as well as a huge fan of support groups and use of community resources!

I am a dedicated clinician looking forward to meeting you and supporting you through life’s challenges. I offer a genuine, comforting, and respectful environment. I integrate many approaches, but overall use a strengths-based approach while examining the effects of thoughts and feelings impacting your decision-making skills. Primarily my approach is based on the individual needs and challenges. I believe in looking at the whole person and overall improving one’s life satisfaction.

I am excited to meet you and invite you to take the next step in moving forward! I would like to support you in reaching new levels in your life. Welcome.
