Melissa Shaw

Knot Therapy

I’m a BIG HEARTED, passionate therapist who specializes in Relationships and Trauma.

Originally from St. Louis, I moved to Colorado in 2008. I’m married with 2 wonderful, rambunctious, loving kiddos! I have an adventurous spirit that comes out not only in the way I speak, but also in the way I live and do my work.

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a passion for helping people process their trauma and grow their relationships. Being a therapist and counselor is not just a day job for me, it’s in my heart…

I LOVE WHAT I DO!

What can you expect from me? I call myself PROFESSIONALLY INFORMAL. I have a casual and encouraging approach, while also being direct and transparent…no hidden agendas here!

I’m down-to-earth and solution-focused. I create a space for you to explore, process and express yourself while also guiding you to do that in a way that creates lasting change. I’ll work with you at a pace that’s both comfortable and challenging…but not overwhelming. I come full of experience and creative interventions to help you process your trauma and grow closer in your relationships.

For those of you who know your therapeutic approaches, you’ll be happy to know that I’m trained in a mouthful of evidenced practices such as EMDR, Brainspotting, Flash Technique, Gottman, EFT, Mindfulness, CBT, IFS, NLP and more. If that just looks like alphabet soup to you, no worries. All that means is that I have a variety of tools to choose from in order to help you step into the best version of yourself.
