Melanie S. Weitzenfeld, Ph.D.
Melanie graduated with her Bachelors in Psychology at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California. She received her master's from the University of Southern California Los Angeles, California in Counseling Psychology. In 2004, she received her Ph.D. in Psychology from USC and is a Licensed Psychologist in the State of Colorado.
Melanie's practice is in Denver, Colorado where she specializes in behavioral health psychology. Melanie's focus is on helping individuals, couples, and families explore the challenges of coping with medical illnesses, deal with life transitions, and identify their personal and social resources in a confidential setting. Melanie believes it is important to understand the nature of the issues on multiple levels (physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual). She believes it is out of this depth of understanding the issues and the context in which they emerge, effective strategies can be developed. Melanie likes to see results with her clients and motivate them to achieve the results they desire. She believes her clients play an important role in achieving their goals in therapy, as she expects them to commit to actively participating in the therapeutic process.
Melanie is a loving wife and mother. Melanie has previously served on the Medical Advisory Committee with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation. She is also a member of the Colorado Psychology Association.
