Wondering what it's like to work with Melissa? Check out what some of her previous clients have to say!


"I’ve been working with Melissa for the past year and during this time I’ve finally been able to unearth things I’d been suppressing since childhood. This has allowed me to get to the root of my anger and frustration and move negative energy out of my body and soul. I’m now able to communicate and express myself more effectively in relationships which makes such a difference! I also feel more calm in general because I’m not holding emotions in my body.”

Alex S., Creative Consultant 

"Traveling with Melissa within the Core Energetics modality continues to heal and expand my well-being exponentially. With the cultivation of a safe container and the utilization of capacity-building tools, my being catalyzes and realizes profoundly, grounding in the embodiment, unconditional love, and radical acceptance created by our collective energy field and space."

“I started working with Melissa virtually in April of 2020, just as the pandemic was ramping up. She has been a Godsend to me and my family through this historically tumultuous time. Her approach to therapy is unique and highly effective because it combines talk therapy and Somatic techniques that allow for greater self-awareness and insight into patterns ingrained as automatic, post-traumatic response. She reads my energy and body language and intuitively knows what questions to ask to introduce small amounts of trauma that, once observed, she can guide me to work through to reduce or remove from my body. … I always leave our sessions feeling less tense and more in control of any perceived obstacles I am facing. In addition to being an expert in her field, she has a huge heart. I know she cares deeply for me, and all her clients, and invests in my journey to live beyond my past-trauma so I can live a joyful and enlightened life. Working with Melissa has truly been a blessing and I just wish I could reach through my computer to give her a big hug of gratitude.”


“Melissa was my first therapist. (I was 26 years old!) I was having a really difficult time making a big life decision, which is what ultimately led me to start therapy. Thinking back three years ago when I first started working with Melissa, I was a completely different person. Through Melissa’s innate guidance and wisdom, she has helped me tune into my body and feel empowered to make decisions and trust myself. I am stronger because of core energetics. Core isn’t for everyone but if you’re open to it, it really packs a good punch. I wish everyone could have Melissa in their life.”

“I reached out to MK shortly after I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. It was the scariest and most challenging time of my life. MK helped me walk through the cancer treatment (and beyond) with more grace, power, and peace. 

“I have never known myself in the way I have come to know myself through working with MK. And this is saying a lot considering the years of practicing mindful awareness, taking intensive self-discovery courses and training, and the numerous excellent integrative therapists and guides with whom I've worked.

“My eyes began to fill with happy tears, and my heart was full of so much love as I started to reflect on the difference MK has made in my life, which pretty much says it all. MK has helped me cultivate a level of self-awareness, self-compassion, and to learn how to love and forgive myself and others more fully. And I had no idea I had so much forgiving to do. 

“The net result: I have more open, honest, fulfilling relationships with myself, my family, friends, and clients. I am happier, more peaceful, and healthier, mind, body, and spirit due to my work with MK.”

“Melissa is fantastic! Her wisdom and awareness helps to identify emotions and how/why they turn up as blocks in the body. She helps to connect current emotions and reactions to our early childhood experience, which brings greater connection and understanding to the work. I have found that by working with Melissa, I have become more comfortable in my own vulnerability as strength, with greater awareness of my low self and higher self states. I highly recommend working with Melissa!”


“I have seen many therapists over the last 30 years, and Melissa has hands down been the best. She has seen and heard me in ways that no one else has. She is an expert listener and genius observer. Melissa’s intuition is always spot on and it has helped me grow in so many ways. She has supported me in new and different ways, by using my body as both a compass and to heal. I never imagined that I could successfully see a somatic therapist online, but I have been pleasantly surprised by how well it has worked. Melissa has offered me the container I have needed for a long time, through her support, genuine care, and wisdom.”
