About Melissa I’m a school psychologist and wellness advocate with a passion for empowering stressed, over scheduled women who are trying to seek balance through creating a lifelong healthy lifestyle. My wake-up call came in the spring of 2016 when I became sick, really sick. I had ignored months of feeling “under the weather” and continued to just push through. Eventually, I wasn’t able to endure that way anymore and my body loudly protested. I was so sick that I wasn’t able to work, take care of my family, or take care of myself. In fact, I found myself at the doctor’s office wondering how I had gotten there. Doctors continued to prescribe me antibiotics in the weeks to come “just because” they didn’t know what else to do, and they would send me home. But I wasn’t getting better. I was extremely frustrated with the lack of knowledge and care from my medical providers regarding treatment and prognosis. I became determined to find a way to heal myself, as I couldn’t imagine continuing on this path much longer. In order to take care of my three small children I needed to take care of myself and put my health at the forefront. This was my wake-up call. I knew I needed to research my illness on my own. Thus began my journey of searching how nutrition, mindfulness and intentional focus could help me figure out and heal my illnesses. I knew the key to a healthier me was to include the nourishing foods my body was meant to consume. So I began countless hours reading, researching and seeking alternative therapies and solutions to rid my body of disease and toxins. I intuitively knew that if I was going to recovery fully I needed to become my own health and wellness advocate. In my search to heal the illnesses that invaded my body and to create a healthier way of life, I discovered my deep passion for a healthy, natural lifestyle. This passion-led research blended well with my knowledge of mental, emotional, and behavioral health, and helps me create a safe, powerful environment for my clients to explore and achieve within their own health journeys. There’s nothing more valuable than your health. Make an investment in YOU!
