What clients are saying...
For a while, I knew that I wasn't content with the way my career was going and the priorities that were driving my life. Since I started working with Melissa, I've been able to get a clear picture of my values and priorities, as well as the life and career I want for myself. In a very nurturing way, through coaching and accountability, she's guided me to elicit things that were holding me back and the characteristics of the life and career I want. One of the things I enjoy the most about working with Melissa is that she'll gently push me to have the courage to find my next 'call to action' - As we discover opportunities, she consistently encourages me to identify practical ways to move forward in a positive way. I'm blessed to have found a coach like Melissa who's helped me re-focus, I feel re-energized and excited for the future again and no longer just going through the motions. I would recommend Melissa without hesitation to anyone feeling like they are in a rut with their life or career.

"Melissa has been a game-changer for me in establishing my role as a Director of a non-profit. She helped me see strengths I didn’t know I had, keeps me focused on goals she helped me set, and helps me work through conflict resolution situations. I am signing up for another round of 12 weeks because our weekly meetings are what I need as a leader and I also thoroughly enjoy them! I love growing with Melissa!"

Cathy B.Independent Contractor, City of Aurora - Aurora Housing Authority
"When I first met with Melissa, I was scattered, overwhelmed and lacked confidence in myself to accomplish my goals. In just the first session, I felt a sense of grounding and empowerment. Her presence and open-hearted listening offered me a space to verbally process my perceived blockages which diffused the illusion that I was paralyzed from moving forward. Melissa offers sincere encouragement, accountability, and always helps me see myself, removing the blinders and bringing to light my innate gifts and talents. So incredibly grateful for her! She is a gift."
Julie W.Owner of Restore Balance, Loveland, CO

Her wisdom and encouragement will help you take those next beautiful steps to a life of fulfillment and joy."
Sarah R.Director of International Development, Denver, CO
I came to Melissa for leadership coaching for help with communication. I had no idea how much there was to this little issue called communication. Through thoughtful questions and her ability to see patterns, she challenged me every week not just for work goals but for personal change. Twelve weeks turned into thirty-six weeks and a promotion that I give her credit for. Highly recommend Melissa!
Matt P.Director of Non-Profit, Chicago, IL
Put simply, I give Melissa a 5 out of 5 stars. Initially, I came to Melissa in desperate need of help with significant leadership struggles at work, but after the first session I realized how much this was going to improve my personal life too. I appreciate Melissa’s direct and hard questions. She helped me identify patterns and habits that were problematic and helped me strategize how to overcome them. Melissa combines expertise with intuition, which was really helpful in my sessions. I have already shared her name with others. .
Steve T.Director of Communications, San Diego, CA
I came to Melissa for leadership coaching because I felt stuck – stuck in my position, stuck in communication, and stuck with setting goals. I didn’t really know what I wanted. Through questions, insights, and a good amount of humor – I can say I’m definitely UNstuck thanks to Melissa. I have new confidence and clarity moving forward.

“I was really overwhelmed and burnt out when I first starting coaching with Melissa. She was able to bring so much clarity and direction with my leadership skills. My communication with my team has become more successful in communicating vision.
