Cultivate Counseling Therapists


Melissa Dohse, LCSW

Founder of Cultivate Counseling

Your capacity for change, healing, and growth is why I do this work. In the 9 years that I have been in the field, courage is what has always shown up at my door. Courage is always what leads us to change -- courage to believe that things could be different, that life doesn't have to feel this way. It would be an honor to walk alongside you on your journey from courage to hope.

I received my Bachelors of Social Work from NAU and graduated with a Master’s of Social Work from the University of Denver.  

I specialize in utilizing EMDR, working with survivors of trauma, women in the postpartum period, and individuals parenting with PTSD.

I provide individual counseling in my office and walk-and-talk sessions in the community. New mothers are welcome to bring their infants.

Cindy McCollum LMSW Therapist with Cultivate Counseling

Cindy McCollum, LMSW


 Therapy is both a vocation and calling for me to journey and hold space for others experiencing pain, doubt, anxiety and hopelessness. I am dedicated to journeying with people to bring hope, perspective and peace of mind. The therapeutic alliance and empathic listening serve as my roots to build relationships with clients. I enjoying branching out to employ psycho-education, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, recovery principles, acceptance and commitment therapy and expressive therapy concepts.

I specialize with anxiety issues, substance abuse (personal, family, adult children of alcoholism or dysfunction), parenting, spiritual concerns, elder issues, and grief.

 A sense of spirituality is a fundamental human affinity and can be helpful in walking through change, grief, transition and life struggles. I would be happy to journey with you on your path to wellness and awareness.

My desire as a therapist is to connect with you and know your story, and then offer support, reflection and encouragement. As a therapist, I believe that I can assist you on your journey toward "wholeness" and help you lay a healthy and stable foundation for your next life-steps.  I completed  my Master of Science Degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. I have worked in the Behavioral Health Field in various capacities for the last 20 years.

 I specialize with EMDR, anxiety and depression, life transition, college students, spirituality and religion, and sexual orientation. 

I am available for individual counseling sessions “in-office” and am available for “walk-and-talk” therapy as it benefits the client. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
