Life coaching with Mel is probably one of the BEST decisions I have made this year. She is a natural encourager, strengths finder, truth seeker and genuine soul all wound up in a big positive ball of energy. She asks the right questions which allow you to dig deeper into areas of your life you might not have otherwise thought to venture. Since working with Mel, I’ve launched the website I had only dreamed about never thought would come into fruition, accepted myself as I truly am as a person and discovered my purpose — what I want to give to the world. I have no doubt in my mind that Mel is meant to be life coach, as she is a force to be reckoned with!

Working with Melissa was nothing less than inspiring, motivating and uber fun! I originally came to her with a long list of things I wanted to accomplish, but was hazy on where to start. Melissa was resourceful, genuine and compassionate. Being the fantastic communicator and organizer extraordinaire that she is, Melissa skillfully guided me into prioritizing my goals and clarifying ways in which I could put my plans into motion – and that I did! Choosing to book one-on-one sessions with Melissa was a valuable decision and has proven to be beneficial both personally and professionally. I am so grateful!

When I was initially considering investing in a session with a life coach the first thing that came to mind was whether or not it would make a difference. After having an opportunity to speak with Melissa a few times I felt like we had a connection and that she could relate to what I was going through. So I decided to take a leap of faith and try it. I am so happy I did! First of all I really appreciated how professional and organized Melissa was. She was also very friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. I really gravitated to the way Melissa structured the coaching. She helped me shift my perception and look at goal setting in a more simplistic, empowering and attainable way. Through various exercises Melissa really got me to explore deep into what I really wanted in life and to remind myself that the possibilities are limitless.
I have been fortunate enough to participate in coaching sessions with Melissa, an Inspire & Empower Workshop, and the Come Alive workshop. All of which have opened my eyes, helped tackle fear and given me the hope and the belief that there is something more out there for me. As a result of some of the great workshops I have made some major decisions in my life one of which is deciding to start a business as an Independent Consultant with a Health and Wellness company called Arbonne. Where I have the opportunity to share amazing safe products and help other people achieve their dreams of financial and time freedom. I’ve also decided to leave my corporate job where I have been working for the same company for over 7 years to explore other options that are more aligned with my passions. My journey through self discovery, building a business and progressing through a yoga teacher training have complimented each other very well! If I were to look back at where I was last year I would have never imagined how many little steps could have taken me to where I am today. I contribute so much of my progress to the guidance, support and encouragement I have received from Melissa.
Melissa you are truly an inspiration! I sincerely believe that you have an amazing gift that needs to be shared with the world. Your motivation, perseverance and authenticity are one of kind and I truly admire you and the work that you do.

I really want to note that I appreciate Melissa’s “realness”. The grounded approach in creating a space where everyone can move at their own pace without feeling forced into anything. As a rebel by nature and a major procrastinator I felt inspiration leaking through the blockages that usually stop me from following through with goal setting and vision making efforts. The indecision and anxiety was settled just knowing that others were on the same path in so many different ways. Support was great. Her anecdotes, personal examples or prompts were just what I needed to spark my own creative process. Her confidence and approachable nature is so reassuring, it is definitely inspiring and empowering!

Melissa is a true natural when it comes to inspiration, support, and challenge. Her authenticity when sharing her own difficulties was a relief. She played as a role model for me because she shared how she viewed herself in the challenges and the actions she took to step back in her game!

Melissa came into my life at a time when I so desperately needed someone to help make sense of all the thoughts, goals and ideas floating around in my head. She listened thoughtfully as I rambled nonsensically about my life, concerns and fears then guided me through exercises to help me clear the clutter in my mind. One exercise I found helpful was the Want/Don”t Want Exercise that allowed me to really examine the things I want and don’t want in my life. Once I had on paper the things that made me both happy and unhappy, it was easier to make decisions about the direction I wanted my life to go in. Since working with Mel, I have made some major life changes, including a move across the country to the west coast! She helped me define and accept my true path and for that I can’t thank her enough.

Melissa is an inspiration, her positive look on life is contagious and thrilling. My life coaching experience with Melissa has not only helped me to achieve goals, but more importantly, it has enabled me to discover who I am, what I want, and how to be the best me possible. She is remarkably supportive, gentle and compassionate yet skillfully adept at helping me focus on what was important at the time. She is a great listener and always finds a solution. Melissa has supported me even after coaching sessions to ensure I stayed on track. I feel I have found my path in life and I owe a large part to Melissa and her guidance. Melissa is a key part in anyone’s quest to self-discovery.

In a world with so many possibilities, paths and outlets its often difficult to try and sort out your own personal path and goals. Melissa’s coaching has inspired some serious reality checks helping to get to the core of who I am. My sessions have been both thought provoking and creative and I am deeply thankful for both her insight and kindness. I highly recommend sitting down with her, you’ll be surprised at just how much you can achieve in one session.
