After almost giving up on the hope of finding someone that could really help me, I met Melissa. After the first consultation, I actually felt hopeful. I had been dealing with a great deal of anxiety and had lost purpose in my life. I had truly stopped trusting humans, so it took a little while for me to learn to trust Melissa. I had recently ended a long marriage, my children were leaving home and I was dating someone who turned out not to be who I thought they were. I didn't want to get up in the mornings.
But over the course of time, Melissa has helped me turn my life around. She is honest, kind, compassionate, and non-judgmental. I get the feeling she genuinely respects who I am as an individual. She has helped me find the tools I needed to move forward with my life. I can't thank her enough.
Working with Melissa has been a game changer in my life and my relationships. She is great at what she does and deeply cares about helping you grow and embrace a powerful version of yourself. I have pursued other types of therapy in the past and made more progress with Melissa than I ever have. She always strives to have your best interest and uses a mindful technique that makes you feel comfortable and inspired to do the work. I am happy to have found her!
I connected with Melissa at a time I was really struggling, financially & emotionally. I was houseless and attempting to live with my family where old abusive patterns and behaviors were impossible to escape. When I reached out to her to support me in healing from past trauma and PTSD and I was so distraught I couldn't even tell what I needed.
Over the last few months, Melissa has supported me profoundly through so many transitions to heal my way out of a messy situation. She has a particular skill for using her wide variety of tools to address what I need in the moment.
It is clear to me that she has depth, kindness, compassion, and love for what she does and care for her clients. I am so grateful to have found someone to guide me through this incredibly challenging period of time.
I’ve tried out a couple different therapists before Melissa (both in-person and through online platforms) and she was the first one I immediately felt comfortable with. I’ve always been nervous about starting therapy or coaching, as I get self-conscious and embarrassed about sharing/dealing with/expressing some of my deepest struggles, but Melissa goes above and beyond to establish a relaxed, non-judgmental environment. She makes me feel understood, trusting, and at ease. I’m so grateful to have her to guide me through my healing journey! She’s amazing!
I have been working with Melissa for a few months now and have made so much progress with my goals. Melissa is amazing when it comes to genuinely being engaged, interested and committed to the work in our sessions. She provides wonderful insight and really caters our sessions to the needs I express. She is also really helpful when it comes to recommending resources for other needs such as reading material, supplements, other agencies that specialize in different things etc.
I am happy to recommend Melissa for your coaching or counseling needs!
