Praise for Melanie as a Coach
Melanie is a great blend of personal cheerleader and challenging trainer. She helped me see things about myself that I was overlooking. She pushed me to aim high while also finding realistic approaches to get there. I'd highly recommend her to anyone stuck in a rut - creative or otherwise.”
"After working with Melanie, I am feeling more calm, expansive, and open to new ideas, and creating new ideas."
"Doing this work with you...I'm being more bold. I can check it out with someone who'll give me an honest assessment."
“It is fun and encouraging to work with Melanie. She asks intriguing questions so you can really look at yourself and what you would like to do and be in the world, and she compassionately re-frames situations in a way that makes the impossible possible - so you can bring your best self to all aspects of your life.”
“Extremely supportive and encouraging. An absolute gem! Thank you, Melanie. You have a great talent and skill at this. Your spirit and your generosity are unmatched!”
"Melanie quickly perceives what is going on below the surface and names it. With Melanie's coaching I am able to see where anxiety is driving my thoughts and actions. I see where I am running a story that doesn't serve me well. I'm able to take a step back and consider how to best move forward."
"As my coach, Melanie was observant and thoughtful in her feedback. She was both direct and supportive - balancing these like a well-trained dancer. I became more focused and effective because of my work with Melanie."
"Melanie challenges me, she is direct, and she has a fun sense of humor - all wonderful qualities for a coach."
"Melanie is an incredible coach! She is knowledgeable, flexible, and kind. She helped me with a number of goals that I had neglected for years due to fear. She has made a tremendously positive impact on both me in both my professional and personal life."
"I feel like a completely different person. A year ago, doing something like this [writing an article for an academic anthology] would have felt insurmountable. But now there's been a whole shift in how I view myself. I was a person who couldn't follow through with things. But not anymore."
"Melanie is an incredible coach. Because her approach is so holistic, I have seen major impacts in both my creative output and in my overall approach to life."
“Melanie is a powerful career coach. I started working with her right after becoming a manager, and credit her no-nonsense coaching to getting me off to a great start on that career path. She was great at seeing the actions that weren't obvious to me, and coming up with thoughtful questions that helped reveal where I was blocked. I highly recommend her for anyone who is ready to make a commitment to taking on the next level with confidence.”
