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 reconnect with your inner leader to create new standards of wellbeing.

In 2017, I hit rock bottom mentally, emotionally, and quite literally in a skiing accident that sparked a spiritual awakening and changed my outlook on life. I realized I was stuck living in my biggest fear: chasing a life of inner-peace and fulfillment, rather than actually feeling at peace and fulfilled.

I was desperate for relief from the lows of depression and the overwhelm of anxiety. I felt increasingly frustrated every time someone told me to "just be more grateful, 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. Embodying the higher standards I had for myself and my life became a non-negotiable. Ultimately, I found support and lasting progress through various modalities of holistic and trauma-informed healing, which is why I'm so passionate about supporting others in this way.

As I built my capacity to feel safe in my body and connect to my inner wisdom, I became more intentional and felt fully present for the first time in my life. Now, I'm here to support you as you explore your subconscious thoughts, emotions, and behavioral patterns so you can gain clarity about how to best embody your unique values and desires.

Mindfulness and holistic healing sparked a passion for life that allowed me to feel more connected to myself and others, present in the world around me, and clarity about how I can meet my needs. I feel a renewed sense of creativity, possibility, and excitement, and I want you to experience all of these feelings and more, too.

i specialize in helping you feel well in your mind, body, and spirit so you can experience more presence and ease 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 transformation of lasting inner-peace that 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 that creates sustainable change at your own pace.

I'm here to support and hold space for you as you embrace more of who you feel called to be. With loving guidance, you'll strengthen your connection to your intuition and build self-trust through honoring and showing up for yourself. You are worthy of the clarity and ease that come with living in emotional, energetic, and somatic regulation.

Let's journey together toward your version of fulfillment with an open heart, clear mind, and liberated spirit.

why work with me?

I know what it feels like to do "all the right things" and still not experience the standard of wellbeing you hoped for.

If you are struggling to:

•Return to a state of presence, peace, and calm
•Take the time to honor all aspects of your wellbeing (body, mind, emotions, spirit)
•Overcome indifference or uncertainty around making decisions
•Focus more on what you want for your life than the day to day stresses and worries
•Let go of patterns and behaviors that no longer feel aligned, and create new habits to support your goals
•Feel connected to what you're passionate about and regularly engage in activities that bring you joy

My friend, you are in the right place!

There is no greater act of self care than intentionally choosing to set higher standards for yourself and your wellbeing. You deserve to experience the empowerment and self-trust that comes from showing up for yourself and your dreams- while having the energy and emotional capacity to do so.

If you're ready to live your life in a way that feels more aligned 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 continue to build trust in your ability to live a life that feels good- even well beyond our time working together.

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

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

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 and dinner parties.

This is my baby, Onyx. He loves to snuggle, play with his toys, 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 favorite subjects to paint.
