Nature-Connected Transformation and Life Coaching
“Melissa offers very powerful nature-connected transformation and life coaching work, conducted either in her office or even better in the nurturing open spaces of natural lands. She is highly intuitive, professional, sincere, and very emotionally present during her sessions. She is also extremely articulate and intellectual, adding to the emotional warmth and compassion she brings. I found her nature-based approach to healing and transformation to be very moving, profound, and effective on some of the deepest levels of my life.” –Gregg E. Louisville, CO.
“Working with Melissa has been nothing short of a joy. She used simple, beautiful language to help me reach deep inside to find my own inner healing. At the same time she energetically brought me to a place of gentle relief. I can feel genuine love and caring from her every time we speak. I recommend Melissa’s work to anyone seeking insight, healing, or spiritual progress.” –Becky S. Boulder, CO.
“I gained tremendous insight by taking Melissa’s Soulscape class. I left her class knowing my life would never be the same again and my life was forever changed in a positive way. I went into her class trying to figure out how to make a career change. Going into her class I felt lost and unsure how to make the change I was hoping to make. At the end of her class I knew which direction to take and what steps I needed to take to get there. Melissa helped me connect with my heart, my own inner knowing to hear my soul through nature exploration. I am forever grateful. Thank you Melissa.” –Hannah L. Golden, CO.

“Melissa is incredibly intuitive and has a great gift for helping one uncover the next steps on their healing journey. I recently went to her because I was feeling incredibly frustrated about a life situation. I went into the session feeling stuck, angry, and confused. I left feeling joyful, hopeful, and serene. Melissa helped me let go and to trust in process. She also helped me get clarity on my personal boundaries to improve my energetic integrity. Since that session I have had more energy, greater clarity, and greater peace. She is one of the most insightful people I know. Working with Melissa is a gift. It is a blessing to be supported by her.” –Hannah L. Golden, CO.
