We high-functioning, passionately driven, high-achieving women can get so used to doing it all that when we hit a brick wall, we’re lost.

That brick wall might be sky-high anxiety, crying at nothing!, yelling at your beloveds, work or friends that exhaust you, too many carbs, not enough sleep, too much wine, never enough time … feeling out of control in an out-of-control world.

We try and cope … after all, we’ve always been able to power through, no matter what. Until, one day, we just can’t do it anymore.

Too tired, too sad, working so hard to keep running until you don’t even know who you are anymore. I’ve been there. It’s miserable, isn’t it?

I specialize in helping outwardly successful women who secretly feel like a hot mess.

If you’re struggling with trauma, I can help.

Anxiety can affect everything in your life. There’s so much that can bring relief.

If you’re suffering from sadness, grief, emotional pain or depression, I’m here.

Success Stories

“I came to Melanie expecting standard career guidance, such as help with resumes or interviews, but instead found her insight and wisdom led me to rethink my life and path.

It was Melanie’s patient, skillful questioning that turned my life around. Her kind and thoughtful guidance has changed so much for me. I’m not sure I could have arrived there with anyone else.

“All the help you gave me really changed my life.

I’m living in my dream city. I have a job I love, with people I really respect. And my marriage is way better than it’s ever been.

I’m so grateful I took the risk of opening up to you. Thank you!”

“I am grateful to have found you. I was introduced to you via one of your podcasts.

I want to say thank you for sharing. I have been searching for a way to overcome the box I have been wrapped in for years.

With this introduction so kindly gifted me, I feel stronger and more determined. Blessed be, beautiful soul.”
