I'm Melissa

i'm here to help you bridge the gap between your ideal life and your actual one.

My Mission: to help you honor yourself and your desires so you can live a peaceful, harmonious, and joyful life.

After I hit rock bottom mentally, emotionally, and quite literally in a skiing accident that changed my outlook on life, I longed for nothing more than inner-peace.

I became engrossed with holistic and trauma-informed healing. I thought I was going to explode if one more well-meaning person told me to "just be more positive, focus on the good things, others have it much worse." I wanted to understand what I was feeling and why so I could truly process my experiences and heal.

As I learned to regulate my nervous system when I felt anxious or low, I felt more safe to be fully in the present moment. Through exploring my thoughts, emotions, and behavioral patterns, I gained clarity about my values, passions, and desires. In showing up for myself and my goals one tolerable step at a time, I noticed my hopelessness gradually transform into hope.

Mindfulness and healing sparked a passion for life that kept me going. I feel more connected to myself and others, present in the world around me, and clarity about what brings me the most joy. I feel a renewed sense of creativity, possibility, and excitement, and I want you to experience all of these feelings, too.

I specialize in helping you live mindfully so you can experience more joy on a daily basis.

Are you an open-minded, introspective person who loves the process of learning, growing, and becoming the best version of yourself? Maybe you've tried personal development work in the past, but haven't experienced the deep inner-peace and harmony you long for. One of your biggest desires is to live more aligned to your values and passions without compromising your wellbeing. You know that feeling more fulfilled in your life is possible for you; You just need the right guidance to keep you moving forward in a way you feel fully connected to and excited about.

I'm here to hold space for you as you embrace more of who you're meant to be. With loving guidance, you'll strengthen your connection to your intuition, move toward emotional, energetic, and somatic regulation, and build self-trust through honoring and showing up for yourself.

Let's walk toward your version of fulfillment with a clear mind, open heart, and liberated spirit.

Why Me?

I know what it feels like to do "all the right things" and still not feel the fulfillment you hoped for.

If you are struggling to...

•Move through apathy
•Calm racing thoughts
•Put yourself first and honor all aspects of your wellbeing
•Cope with stress, worry, or other uncomfortable emotions
•Let go of patterns or behaviors that don't feel aligned

•Feel connected to and embody your passions
Enjoy inner-peace as your baseline

...you are in the right place!

There is nothing more empowering than gaining self-trust through showing up for yourself and your dreams- and having the energy and emotional capacity to do so. If you're ready to come more into alignment with who you know you're meant to be, I would love to support you on your journey.

Together, we're going to ensure you feel more connected to yourself and your vision for your life. My intention for you is to take what you learn here and continually live in your truth- even well beyond our time working together.

You deserve to live presently, peacefully, passionately, and purposefully.

you don't have to choose between your wellbeing and your fulfillment.

My favorite travel memory: participating in zen meditation led by a renowned Buddhist monk in Kyoto, Japan. Meditation has since become an amazing mindfulness resource in my life.

one of My favorite things in life is to share delicious vegan food with others. I sell my original baked goods locally, run a vegan food blog, and love hosting loved ones for brunch or dinner parties.

This is my boy, Onyx. He's a long-haired chihuahua, loves to snuggle, and is the best work from home companion!

I love to watercolor and acrylic paint, drawing inspiration from our beautiful world. Nature scenes and colorful landscapes are my jam.
