What people are saying about working with Melissa as a Wellness Coach:


“Melissa’s fitness classes for our children is one of the best ways I’ve seen someone do community building within our neighborhood in the last 15 years. She is bringing our kids out of our homes (and probably off their computers/ devices) and teaching them some really neat things right here at a park in our neighborhood…If you have kids who need to get outside more…I would recommend sending them to Melissa’s youth fitness class.” -Rich C.


“The breadth of Melissa’s knowledge and understanding of the human body (along with its ties to other layers of human thought, emotion, and experience) is staggering and deeply impressive.” - Chris J.


“If you haven’t experienced Melissa in action you are missing out. She is highly intuitive and seems to know exactly what you need when you need it. Spend some time with her and you will feel that she has helped you surface what you’ve been looking for that will unlock whatever is blocking your true happiness.” - Erica H.


“I started seeing Melissa for postural correction/ general strengthening in 2017, and immediately I sensed deep wisdom and listening that went beyond the body to the mind and spirit. While she incorporates and encourages bodily movement, she is adept at diving into the real core of the heart, helping unpack hangups and anxieties and habits of being — it’s Life Coaching at its bravest and most loving.” - Kimberly M.


“Heard about Melissa through a friend and it was one of the best recommendations we’ve ever received. Her knowledge of the body is incredible and she helped to diagnose and treat my shoulder girdle issues that other therapists couldn’t seem to figure out. When my wife and I visit Tucson, we make it a “must” to see Melissa, regardless of whether we are here for just a few days or weeks. She is fantastic!” - Dave D.
