About Melissa...

I first got interested in psychology and sociology when I started attending college. This was back in 1997-98, while I was still on active duty in the Air Force. Yet, at the time, I knew I wasn't ready yet to help others.

After the military, I became a teacher and taught for a few years. But, I was always more passionate about education theory and working with adults, then being in the classroom.

Finally in my 40's, God hit me over the head and said, "It's time. You have been doing a lot of different things trying to find the right fit. You have gained a lot of good experience. Now it's time to go back to school and become a counselor!" Everything lined up! I learned that I had a gift and passion, to gather information and be able to communicate it to others in a way they can understand. 

There is a history of the women in my family finding their feet in their 40s. My Great-Grandmother started the tradition by going back to college to become an interior decorator. My mom bought an orchard and started farming. My sister started her in-home-senior living center.


Now it's my turn. I never thought I would be where I am now; content, happy, and helping others. I am excited to walk with you during your extraordinary healing process.
