Colleen Marchese, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Therapist, Charlotte, NC

“I love being able to take part in a client’s life and work with them through their journey towards a better life. I find it greatly rewarding that clients entrust me to step into their lives and help them through some of their most personal and difficult times through the therapeutic relationship.”

I am a licensed clinical social worker who truly believes in a person’s ability to work through complications that arise throughout life’s different phases, overwhelming emotions, negative self-image, and relationships to regain control of their lives when given the right tools and skills. I work towards helping clients learn, practice, and apply those tools and skills in order to move towards a happier and healthier future. I love having the trust and ability to step into a client’s life in order to work together to reach their goals.

I have experience working with adolescent, adult, and geriatric populations in the intensive outpatient and regular outpatient settings. I also have experience working with individuals who are suffering from everyday issues to critical and crisis-related issues. I utilize techniques from solution-focused counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavioral therapies (DBT) to best service and assist clients in reaching their goals. On occasion, I may assign work outside of the therapy sessions, as I believe therapy is not just practiced in an office but as a part of life. Further, I have experience working with adults dealing with substance abuse issues.


My ideal client is:

  • Depressed or sad
  • Anxious or overwhelmed
  • Has low self-esteem or confidence issues
  • Has relationship, family, or work issues
  • In need of flexible morning or evening appointments.

I accept all Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plans and Medcost (CBHA). I am out of network with all other insurance plans, and I can offer an invoice to submit towards your out of network benefits for potential reimbursement.

Self-Pay Rate: $125 per 55 minute session.
