Foundational Life Coaching:
Each coaching session is orchestrated specifically for the individual, 
therefore, no two sessions will be identical. Your sessions may include hypnosis, NLP, MER Therapy, EFT, and other modalities, in part or combination.

Foundational Coaching is different than mainstream coaching, as it integrates classic counseling techniques with the above-mentioned therapies, with intuitive and instructive coaching and accountability. It is effective for all areas in life where you may feel "stuck", including, but not limited to: Confidence, self-love/worth, healing, career, communication, personal relationships, addictions, self-esteem, life purpose, sports and athletic enhancement, motivation, and focus, etc... Social Anxiety is greatly helped with Foundational Life Coaching, using the tools mentioned above to improve and eradicate issues with all forms of anxiety and anxiety-related symptoms. Typically, within a few sessions, most anxiety symptoms are minimized, if not gone completely.


"Melanie’s wisdom saved me. I had crippling postpartum anxiety, which no doctor or other professional identified. I saw MDs, OBYGNs, midwives, therapists, just to name a few. No one knew how to help. I could not sleep, and could not function or take care of my baby. It went on for over a year until I saw Melanie. She immediately suggested that I most likely needed amino acid support and directed me to the right book and support to fix it. Within 24 hours I felt like a cloud was lifted and I was on the road to recovery. I am endlessly grateful for her compassion and expertise. Thank you Melanie! xoxo" -Client in Santa Cruz, 2015 


​"I REALLY FELT RELAXED AND AS IF A HEAVY BURDEN HAD BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS. THANK YOU MELANIE FOR LISTENING TO ME AND NOT PASSING JUDGEMENT. I KNOW I HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO IN ORDER TO MODIFY MY UNHEALTHY VICES BUT WITH YOUR HELP I JUST KNOW I WILL SUCCEED! HUGS TO ALL!" - SANTA CRUZ, CA


Couples & Intimacy Coaching:

Relationships are all different, that's why some people "click" and feel a deep connection and others don't.


Couples coaching is:

Effective for deepening the relationship--taking it emotionally and sensually to the next level. 


Effective for problem-solving--learning how to listen and hear each other in the most honest and loving ways, and how to

communicate in a way that your partner actually can hear you.


Effective for when the relationship has run its course, for one reason or another and it's time to move on--coaching can help by connecting each of you with the authentic truths of what your soul's next evolution is, without judgment or fear. It can help to create strategic plans so that both parties can move forward with grace, even when there are other feelings manifesting!


"I want to thank you for your professionalism and your great support. I am home again with my family and all is well on my end! Cheers!!" -Client in Watsonville, CA

​"I went in and met with Melanie to try hypnotherapy to help me find some jewelry that I had misplaced.  I wasn't sure how well this would work, but I was a bit at my last resort.  So we did the session and I saw that I had put the jewels in the corner of a crowded closet.  When I went home, it wasn't in the corner that I thought, but it was in the other corner, in plain sight!" - J.D., Santa Cruz, CA
