These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melissa Cumella. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Written on Jan 10, 2024 after therapy with Melissa for 6 months

Melissa was consistent, supportive, responsive, and beyond effective with my teen. She did in 4 months, what no other therapist before her was able to do. She connected with my teen in a way that made them feel heard and stuck around long enough for my teen to trust her and start opening up and healing. I am so very grateful to Melissa. I have my kiddo back.

Melissa is an angel. She listens and always provides great space for me to share and be comfortable. She will provide suggestions when appropriate. She has great availability and i can get an appointment when I want. She checks in on me throughout the week. She's the perfect therapist.
