In Embodied & Whole Healing sessions, I create a safe and accessible way for women to explore their own healing by reclaiming the connection to their bodies and learning the vital skills necessary to live from a deeply embodied, whole place.

we always begin with a free consultation so you can ask any questions and understand the process.

Many teachings equate embodiment with being aware of the body or with attunement to physical sensation.  But embodiment is the blend of awareness, emotion and physical sensation.  In order to fully embody ourselves, we need to open to all three of these qualities. 

This journey into deep contact with ourselves is profound but often uncomfortable as we discover places within ourselves that have been abandoned or wounded.

heal from trauma

Inhabiting ourselves allows us to begin observing and healing these wounds that we have inevitably gathered along the way. Deeply disconnected due to cultural conditioning, personal trauma, religious programming and so much more, many women have ignored these wounds and the impact they have on our bodies. I will guide you in gentle healing & release techniques and claiming the ground of your body.

find your innate wholeness

This healing journey into the depths of ourselves gives us access to our wholeness - an aspect of ourselves that is unbroken, unwounded. We learn how to inhabit this ground and return to it even when we become stressed or wounded.

Before working with Mellisa I felt disconnected from my body and my feminine power... In each session you get to experience deep compassion, love, and shedding. I am feeling more connected to myself in a way that I have never felt.

I came to Mellisa when I was absolutely devastated from my divorce. She helped me work through the trauma and release all of that negative energy that had me paralyzed and depressed. I literally feel like a new human as a result of our working together.

Mellisa opened the door for me to do the deepest work I have ever done. She held a sacred space for me to explore my fears, strengths and power. I cannot recommend her enough!!!
