Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Equine Gestaltist Littleton, Colorado

Hi, I’m Melissa…

…and I’m here to help.

I work with individuals and couples to help them have the most loving, healthy and supportive relationships they deserve.

Maybe you are single and navigating the ups and downs of the dating world or you’re recently engaged and wanting to set your marriage up for the best chance of success.

Or perhaps you’ve been married for years and are needing some support to get through the challenging times.

Or maybe you are going through a break up or divorce and could use some help finding yourself again.

I work with clients at any stage to connect with their most authentic version of themselves, heal past hurts, and show up as their best selves in their lives and relationships.

What is Gestalt?


Gestalt is a trauma-informed and holistic method of psychotherapy used to help people heal and gain self-awareness to live a peaceful and fulfilling life. The word Gestalt is a German term and loosely translates into “a journey toward wholeness”. This methodology, which has been around since the 1930’s, focuses on the whole person-body, mind and soul-and your experience in the present moment. Gestalt coaching is transformational work and has proven effectiveness in helping people heal through somatic, whole person experiences.

Gestalt work is typically done in person but has recently been transferrable, to some degree, to virtual sessions. Gestalt offers true healing and much more than just managing symptoms. It is creative and tailored to each unique client or couple and each session is different.  Clients report a lasting sense of feeling lighter, painful memories carry less emotional charge, and they are able to move forward in life with more self-awareness, more self-compassion, more confidence and a stronger sense of connection in their relationships.


Melissa provided a deep sense of connection and safety. Her calm and caring approach guided me through my work bringing me clarity and peace.

Melissa has an incredibly calm and loving voice. She immediately has a demeanor of safety and security. Her sense of calm allowed me to open up about things I have been holding onto for years. She helped me unpack and allowed me to safely express feelings and thoughts without shame and guilt. She helped me take a huge weight off my shoulders and gave me a little piece of peace.

I have watched Melissa grow as a coach. You can hear the concern in her voice and compassion/empathy as she guides her client through the process of “letting go” and healing! Powerful!

The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce,  a core founder since 1989, of the horse-­human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client’s exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in examining their life and choices made
with a focus on designing a positive future.
