Melissa Hellwig, MS, LPC

Hello and thanks for checking out our website!  I'm
excited to be a part of this dynamic team of providers
committed to offering quality psychotherapy backed by years

of experience.  My education started at Viterbo
University and then Winona State University where I received 
my Master's Degree. I've been working in the
counseling and therapy field since 1996 when I became a
crisis counselor at what used to be First Call For Help.
What a great opportunity that was to prepare me for social
work and eventually psychotherapy.  I have specialty
training in women's mental health and perinatal mental
health.  The latter allows me to work with women who
are pregnant and postpartum and have adjustment or mental
health concerns.  I'm also an AASECT (American
Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, And Therapists)
certified sex therapist. This training allows me to work
with individuals and couples who have a variety of
relational and sexual concerns. I have additional training
in trauma informed care including TI-CPP (trauma informed
child-parent psychotherapy), which is psychotherapy for

small children with trauma histories.  It has also been
my privilege over the years to provide therapy to grieving
and bereaved people, including parents of children who have
died.  I see men, women, couples, children, adolescents, and adults. 

If it is therapy you are looking for, we at The
Therapy Place of La Crosse can guarantee expertise,
confidentiality, professionalism, and compassion. I

would be happy to see you for general or specialty
