"Melinda was a guiding light during my son's turbulent pre-teen years when he didn't want to learn or participate in activities. Through her constant praise and positive communication, offering him responsibility, he eventually enjoyed what seemed to come easier to others."

"Even with college degrees, I lacked confidence as a teacher. Melinda helped me identify the stress and fear I felt and with her support I began to enjoy being in the classroom."

"After several community meetings where I felt my voice was unheard, Melinda guided me to present a better version of myself. I actually rehearsed my presentations with her, including the body language I wanted others to see. This made all the difference."

"I was at a cross-roads in my work life. Compensation was great, fulfillment was not. Melinda helped me create and evaluate my pros and cons list as to whether I stay in my current position or open a new chapter. First she insisted that I see myself as a champion. Once I could do this I realized that my decision making was not as difficult as I thought. She broke down the various pieces of my dilemma. I continue to use her process when I have tough choices to make."
