I first discovered coaching, and the power of a good coach, while participating in a leadership program in 1999. I loved the focus on real change through action, the deep inquiries, and how accomplishing transformational change was a like multi-vitamin in all areas of life. Boom!
I am a candid and encouraging coach, and I am fiercely committed to helping my clients get where they want to be.
As a working writer and teaching artist, I bring fresh perspectives that cause clients to see and think differently and get unstuck quicker. I’m uniquely qualified to coach people looking to add more creativity in their lives. I also coach people as they seek more effectiveness and satisfaction in their careers. I offer fun, creative homework for my clients to generate potent insights and discover new options.
I am a committed yogi, and am a big fan of mindfulness – I have gained much personal freedom from my yoga and meditation practice. I often use mindfulness practices with my clients.

“Being able to dismantle the mechanisms of perfectionism
went a long way to be finding my Center. Once I was centered,
I could focus on the process,
and finally complete
the first draft of my novel.”
"As my coach, Melanie was observant and thoughtful in her feedback.
I became more focused and effective because of my work with her."
