Melissa works with her clients to guide them towards a more satisfactory and fulfilling lifestyle, while helping them gain the skills and strategies needed for long-term application.  She also has experience working with issues such as stress and burnout, grief and loss, self-esteem, sleeping problems and insomnia, and assertiveness.
