Live the Life you Want
With Melissa’s help, I continue to heal and am able to attain my goals.
Melissa helps me identify the source of the challenges I’m facing and works with me to develop a concrete plan to work through those challenges. This is exceedingly helpful because I tend to get caught into a negative feedback cycle of demanding too much of myself and then being unable to respond and maintain work towards my aspirational goals. She helps me get back on a path to growth that doesn’t overwhelm me. Her perspective is invaluable. With her help, I continue to heal and be able to attain my goals.
I feel empowered and clear and appreciate ME.
I feel empowered knowing that I can get what I want despite challenges. I appreciate ME now and am clear on my non-negotiables that we established to be met.
We have unleashed a monster! 😉
Thank you, you have helped me find my way back to myself.
Words can not quite express my deep gratitude for Melissa’s support and care. Her grace and skill are boundless. Her compassion and ability to intuitively know and support others is a wonderful gift. Thank you for supporting me on this journey. You have helped me find my way back to myself. You are the most valuable advisor, therapist, guide and healer.
I was able to spend a month in Australia with my family on the beach all while enjoying a healthy income from my company and only working one hour a day!
Melissa is such a powerful coach. I had hit an upper limit issue and was sabotaging myself. I couldn’t see my way out of the negative cycle. After just a few focused questions and a bit of directed conversation, she was able to pinpoint where I was stuck and help me see the way out. After meeting with her, I was able to spend a month in Australia with my family on the beach all while enjoying a healthy income from my company and only working one hour a day during that month without any guilt or panic. Thank you Melissa, you are truly amazing!
I feel calmer, can let go and focus on work and family.
I feel calmer and a lot better than I did before. When I fall into one of the unhelpful thought patterns Melissa and I identified, I can snap myself out of it. I now know how to really breathe and be more mindful. I have trained myself to not dwell on things that cause stress and I can let go to focus at work and with my family.
I’m now able to relax more easily, make smarter and more intuitive decisions and in general, just be present.
The first was just learning how to slow everything down and allowing my body and mind time to process things. I’ve always been a go, go, go person (still am in many ways), but when we first started working together, you had to constantly remind me to breathe, to take a moment to actually think about what you were asking me, to let things sink in before making decisions, and to stop and actually listen to what my body was telling me. That was huge and life changing for me. I am still working on those things, but you definitely remind me to do them a lot less. And I find myself much more comfortable with myself in uncomfortable places, able to relax more easily, making smarter and more intuitive decisions and in general, just being present. Had you told me a year ago that I’d be who I am today, I would have laughed and thought that you were crazy and yet, here I am and you played a big role in that.
Speaker, Facilitator, Coach
Melissa presents things in bite size pieces that if practiced, are not overwhelming at all. Game changers in doses we can all obtain!
I love Melissa’s approach to healing. She presents things in bite size pieces that if practiced, are not overwhelming at all. In fact she makes it so easy to add recovery tools to our kit, that the empowerment encourages us to do more, in our own time, she is a genius. Game changers in doses we can all obtain!
You have so much to contribute & I enjoyed you so much, I hope you’ll come back.
Melissa is a powerful coach who allows you to see parts of your life that you never would have noticed or addressed by yourself.
Melissa is such a powerful coach. Her insights and intuition are spot on. She allows you to see parts of your life that you never would have noticed or addressed by yourself.
With Melissa, we implemented a structure and organization for my daily life and business that is sustainable and efficient.
Melissa helped me determine what was holding me back and I am learning to manage the physical and mental obstacles and roadblocks. You will want to learn how to trust and overcome fear so you can do it on your own. You can not grow and keep everything in your head. You will get lost in the minutia. We implemented a structure and organization for my daily life and business that are more sustainable so I can be more efficient and waste less time and energy.
It feels so good to say no AND I’m surprised how receptive people are to my saying no!
The workshop has already helped me feel comfortable saying no and MEANING it. I don’t say no to something and pedal backward. This feels SO GOOD! I’m also surprised by how receptive and ok people are with me saying no.
It has been a fantastic month since the workshop. It’s helped me personally, at work, and even in my relationship with my husband.
I had my wow moment. I had been waiting for permission and that has gone away! It has been a fantastic month since the workshop. I have focused on me. It’s been great! It’s helped me personally, at work, and even in my relationship with my husband.
Melissa is a skilled coach, facilitator and truly embodies the teachings and techniques she shares.
Melissa was a delight to work with and an outstanding spotlight speaker for our online women’s collective: VitalityVIP. It is apparent that Melissa is a skilled coach, facilitator and truly embodies the teachings and techniques she shares. She was able to create shifts in all of us that was palatable. Articulate, brilliant, funny and an all around all-star speaker!
Taking this time out at the workshop allowed me to dig deep into discomfort to find the clarity I needed to be open and see new possibilities and opportunities.
Taking this time out at the workshop allowed me to dig deep into discomfort to find the clarity I needed to be open and see new possibilities and opportunities. I also really appreciated the “tool kit” provided with the folder to keep all the strategies we learned in one place which can be added to in the future.
Since the workshop, I have been able to shift my focus at work and move forward with laser-focused clarity.
This is the first time in a long time that I’ve focused on me and going to the workshop felt similar to a mini-vacation or a spa day. Since the workshop, I have been able to shift my focus at work and move forward with laser-focused clarity. I am working out and even doing it at home when there isn’t enough time. It brings me joy. I’m also scheduling more me time and I ask myself “ what am I doing for myself today?”
In this intimate group I felt seen, heard, and witnessed. Melissa is a great coach.
I’m often hesitant about going to group workshops and but in this intimate group I felt seen, heard, and witnessed. Melissa is a skilled facilitator able to hold space and shift priorities to meet the energy of the group over the full two days together.
Improved Mental and Physical Health
I have so much more energy, a good attitude and best of all, I lost a few pounds!
I am so glad I attended your lecture this month at the Boulder Library on Holistic Nutrition. It made a big impression on me. So much so that changed what I eat. Only after 2 weeks, I have so much more energy, a good attitude and best of all, I lost a few pounds! The key to eliminating illness and staying healthy as you age is simple. Follow Melissa’s simple rules for eating right and exercising. The results are amazing!
I went from despair to returning to my normal, happy, healthy self.
Before working with Melissa, I felt my physical health challenges were irreversible and very daunting. I was in a hole of helplessness and despair thinking that this discomfort would follow me around my entire life. The exercises we worked on during our appointments and her continued support helped me see that I was on an upward path to healing and would eventually return to my normal, happy, healthy self.
I’m mentally stronger than ever before! I’ve discovered new passions of mine, new interests and new mentalities.
I have never been able to connect to myself and discover myself the way Melissa lead me to do. I feel mentally stronger than I ever have before, I have discovered new passions of mine, new interests, new mentalities; i never would have investigated the power of myself if it weren’t for Melissa.
Melissa reassured me through exploration of the self.
I feel better about myself
Melissa is the best. She goes above and beyond when she works with you. She understands how people truly feel and listens. I feel better about myself when I am with her.
I’m now creating supportive spaces in my life.
I really appreciate having a safe, supportive, but still constructive space to just be me. I trust that when I walk into her office I could tell her just about anything and it would be okay. She always comes back with a way to take what I just said and move forward in the right direction. And what she tells wasn’t always what I want to hear, but that’s a good thing and once I take some time and let it sink in, I always find it supportive and empowering. Prior to seeing her, I didn’t have a space like that. And it wasn’t until then that I was able to identify how valuable that space is and start creating other supportive spaces like that in my life.
Melissa helped me get out of my rut and move forward!
You will immediately feel the warmth, cheer, expertise, and magnetic personality that is able to help you reach beyond yourself and that is Melissa. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for how much Melissa has helped me get out of my ruts and move forward.
Life-changing! She believed I would shine again and now I am!
I love Melissa. Working with her has been life-changing. Melissa saw that I had a light despite the layers of sh*t hiding it. I follow her strategies that I call the “Holy Grail” or “The Things” and share them with others. She believed I would shine again and now using “the things” she taught me, I am. I am forever grateful.
I’m now better able to understand myself.
My therapy with Melissa centered on mindfulness and awareness to help me deal with my challenges. I am now better able to understand myself and leverage the various tactics she taught me to cope and adapt in multiple situations. From the first day, I felt she just “got me.” She is fun, down to earth, and emphatic about making a difference. Her attention and compassion were exceptional. I could tell my well-being was her priority.
I now slow down to be more present in each moment.
Melissa is very straightforward and connected with her clients. She identifies issues and directly responds to support and improve focus. I continue to build my awareness and now slow down to be more present in the moment.
Intention & Goal Setting
I am now connecting more with friends and Neighbors. I am working out more too!
I now know you can shift these things you don’t have to live one way forever.
Setting intentions using Melissa’s strategies makes your intentions a reality!
I now see myself as an integrated, complete woman. I’ve reached for goals I never would have considered before!
Melissa has been an excellent sounding board for so many aspects of life and provides resources to further my own knowledge beyond our in-office work together. She has a broad range of knowledge, due to her education, experience, and continual learning habits, to assist quite handily in areas that are clearly not my expertise. There are so many areas of life we would like to be successful and to achieve our dreams and goals but the path to get there is often veiled because we lack important life lessons and knowledge to live a more balanced life, which is one area where Melissa shines greatly. Because I lacked a great deal of the knowledge and skills Melissa has taught me, I saw my self-imposed and other-imposed limitations. I now see myself as an integrated and complete woman rather than a partial human being. She has had faith in me and encouraged me to reach for goals I never would have considered before. Initially those were quite frightening but now they are exciting.
