"Every Tuesday I look forward to connecting with you because 1) you are a miracle worker and totally get inside my head and tell me exactly what I need to hear and 2) It couldn't be any easier or convenient that we meet over the phone and I can literally be anywhere, and I don' have to take time off work or pay for parking. I just stop what I'm doing, and take an hour long lunch break. 3) You actually follow up on every little thing and hold me accountable... unlike any other medical or mental health professional who could care less about the results of your visit with them. I feel personally that in a short amount of time, you have made a huge impact on my life and the choices I make day to day. Despite the colossal amount of crap I have to deal with, I really do feel that you have helped me lift and manage so many layers of crap that was/is weighing me down, including my actual body weight which is also disappearing."

"I had the pleasure of working with Melissa over the past 3 months and have found the experience to be life changing. I needed Melissa’s services because I had been unable to obtain my weight and fitness goals on my own. Most of my life I have been a thin fit person. I was a competitive athlete as a child and teen. I was also blessed with a fast metabolism. HOWEVER; that all changed in my mid-forties. Suddenly, I started gaining weight. Things got even worse as I began menopause. Until meeting Melissa, I had struggled with weight gain for 6 or 7 years. I had been dieting, eating and cooking “healthy”, and following whatever the latest diet fad of the hour was for years with no success. I have lived through, and relentlessly followed many different diet fades: low fat, Paleo, Gluten Free, calorie counting, macro counting, portion control, low carb, slow carb, and no carb to name a few. Additionally, I have worked for months with one of the best nutritionists in Houston. He is known for his work with body builders and pageant girls. The results – When I stuck to each of the above diets, they always worked. BUT, they were impossible to maintain. I would come close to achieving my weight and fitness goal only to back slide because the diet regiment was not realistic as a lifestyle. Then I met Melissa. The first thing she did was take me off of all diets. She explained what I already knew; Diets don’t work! I felt immediately liberated. We began our sessions by her listening to me and understanding my goals, my lifestyle, and the limits I had in terms of time commitment. She demystified for me all the conflicting dietary advice I had been given over the years. I had become so confused as to what I was “supposed” to eat, that I was paralyzed and had given up. For me, Melissa made eating healthfully simple and less time-consuming. I am finally on my way to my goal weight and fitness thanks so Melissa. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, but she is patient, loving, caring, and is infinitely supportive. I cannot recommend Melissa enough. I feel like I finally understand how to lose weight naturally and healthfully while not being hungry all the time and not being a slave to time-consuming food prep. Thanks so much Melissa. You’re the best."

"An angel walking this earth, Melissa has a sincere and honest way of guiding one through the unknown. She openly hears what you have to say to gather the best sense of who you are so that she has the best opportunity to help you with her skills. The variety of her knowledge and skills provide balanced advice to balance your life. I have always known that our lives are a multitude of systems, but it was not until working with Melissa that I understood it. We often live our lives because of repetition or "It's the way I've always done things", but learning more specifically the science behind how to nurture each system within ourselves, we are able to reach our full potential and shine."

“Coaching by Melissa in her 90-day Transformational Body and Mind program has been life-changing. It is not just about the weight loss or how my clothes are two sizes smaller. It’s about the deeper meaning of why I was out of shape. At times when I felt I couldn’t go on, Melissa with her compassion and understanding gave me encouragement as she fully believed in me before I believed in myself. She is so knowledgeable. Her encouragement, knowledge, support has helped me to be happier, have more energy, and helped me to know even if I slide back I now have the tools to get back on track. It's a process and I am happier, healthier and have a more energy. Melissa is one in a million.”

"Melissa has such an innate ability to maneuver straight to the point and the obstacle preventing me from achieving what’s most important. She peeled away the layers of ick, patterns and habits that were standing in my way. Everything since has been a domino effect in the right direction. My Direction!"
