She has created a space which is safe to be vulnerable.
“I am thankful beyond words for the support and care I have experienced in working with Melinda. She has created a space which is safe to be vulnerable. Her compassion, knowledge and care are evident at every session and make it more comfortable to open up and trust in the process of healing. She is patient with questions, frustrations, and difficult moments which arise during the process. In my work with Melinda, I have found healing and transformation in my ability to experience and process emotions, transitioned off of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, and less feelings of being overwhelmed or anxious. I am experiencing life from a place of safety and enjoyment unlike what I have previously experienced!”
This has transformed my life.
“I have been doing TEB work with Melinda for over three (3) years and it has transformed my life. Initially, I was skeptical but had done years of talk therapy, intensive outpatient therapy, medication, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) programs for the treatment of Major Depression Disorder and anxiety with little long term improvement. TEB has allowed me to process through past trauma and make space for my healing and space for myself in general. I feel more grounded and spiritually aligned after my sessions and am forever grateful for Melinda and her caring, loving treatment.”
Her healing, safe touch and calming presence made all the difference, and has taught me how to calm myself.
“I was referred to Melinda right as my marriage was falling apart. I had been talking in circles in therapy about my thoughts and feelings for 28 years. I had first sought out help at the age of 17-years old for depression and intrusive thoughts and images. Nevertheless, I brought my childhood issues and trauma into my marriage, sabotaging a chance at closeness. Right from the beginning, my experience with Melinda was different. When I decided to explore the somatic healing protocol of touch, it was initially challenging for me, to be honest. It was scary and weird at first, but I took a chance and trusted her. Soon I could feel my body learning to relax and soften. Her kindness was palpable. Slowly I learned to be kind to myself. My trauma began to process passively through my body and my mind, a little at a time, but this time with a loving guide at my side. Her healing, safe touch and calming presence made all the difference, and has taught me how to calm myself. I am even able to get close to others and trust now. I used to think all the time I had spent staying in bed hiding from my feelings was wasted time. I used to complain about that a lot; but now I know that behavior was necessary for my survival at the time. It was an adaptation to the trauma I had experienced. My shame is mostly gone and replaced with gratitude and healing light. Melinda would point out she didn’t do it, she helped me heal myself. I believe she can help you heal yourself too.”
I have been able to bring healing to my family relationships and partnerships.
“I have been on a healing journey with Melinda for several years. Her insight, spiritual connection, and gentleness, alongside her knowledge, training, and experience, have afforded me relief in many areas of my life. I have been able to step away from psychiatric medications. I have been able to bring healing to my family relationships and partnerships. I feel a better connection with my gifts and my purpose. I believe that, without her gifts of healing through touch and through insight, I would not be as secure and connected as I feel today. So much gratitude, Melinda!”
I came for healing, guidance and support. I am receiving all of these and more.
“Melinda is magic! Really. This is not an exaggeration. I came for healing, guidance and support. I am receiving all of these and more: a better sense of self, of my own gifts, of my inner ability to heal, and improved understanding of my connections to others and the universe as a whole. Melinda’s intuitive gifts, joyful spirit, and ability to create safety support the process of delving deep within myself, and growing to reflect the love and light present in me and others, the byproduct which is healing my body. I have immense gratitude for this process and for Melinda’s work with me.”
I no longer live in a chronically anxious state and have tools to calm my nervous system when triggers arise.
“I came to Melinda after many years of living with the emotional challenges that arise from a traumatic childhood. I had tried talk therapy many times since the age of 18-years old and found little change in my response to the world. Melinda’s healing work has transformed my relationship with myself. Through her guidance, I have found my way back to my “true self” and released the toxic narrative of dysfunctional relationships. I have come to understand and nurture the relationship between myself and the universe. I no longer live in a chronically anxious state and have tools to calm my nervous system when triggers arise. Melinda’s guidance has been one of the greatest gifts I could have given to myself. I would recommend her to anyone that lives with trauma”
It is hard to convey the amount of well-being, growth and peace I have achieved due to my healing with Melinda, simply because I didn’t know this existed.
“It is hard to convey the amount of well-being, growth and peace I have achieved due to my healing with Melinda, simply because I didn’t know this existed. When I found Melinda, I simply wanted to find a therapist who would help me make incremental improvements with my anxiety, depression, and other trauma related symptoms. After three years of healing, not only have I been able to drop all medications, but I have discovered a way to live that almost feels as if it’s cheating! That’s how much easier and richer life has become. At times, Melinda’s gentle but effective treatment feels as if “nothing is happening”, but my results are 10x what I thought was possible. I would invite anyone struggling and desires to choose a different path to come with an open mind and experience the profound changes that are possible with Melinda”
She has been so patient and kind and helped me to feel safe so that I could get the help I so desperately needed.
“I have been with Melinda for many years now and my time with her has literally changed my life and probably saved it! She has been so patient and kind and helped me to feel safe so that I could get the help I so desperately needed. I now feel in touch with my body and more alive. She has helped me to put the pieces of my life together. I would highly recommend her and what she offers. It has been a game changer for me and my family.”
She has been by my side and brought me along the way to overcome my fears and emotions.
“I cannot say enough good things about Melinda. In my journey of healing, Melinda has shown great compassion, caring and empathy. Her professionalism and techniques are phenomenal. She has been by my side and brought me along the way to overcome my fears and emotions. She’s always there with her calming and loving words and healing skills.”

My life has changed for the better, and in ways I did not even expect, since I started seeing Melinda.
“When I met Melinda, I had pretty much given up the hope that anything would be helpful to me. I had seen two other previous therapists already, that to be honest, made me feel worse. A friend recommended that I see Melinda since her approach was very different and that she had made such a difference in her life. Looking back, I realize just how fortunate I was to have been given that advice. I’m so glad I tried again and this time with someone who knows how important it is for the body to heal along with the mind. My life has changed for the better, and in ways I did not even expect, since I started seeing Melinda.”
