Want help naturally prepping for pregnancy?
Have you been trying to conceive for some time now without any luck and want to try something more holistic before seeking out fertility assistance (IVF, IUI, etc.)?
Once pregnant, want to make sure you’re supporting your body + baby as best you can?
After birth are you struggling to balance your hormones + feel like yourself again?
Maybe you’re 10 months or 10 years out but you STILL don’t feel “right” or “normal” after having your children?
Are you frustrated that other people seem to “bounce back” so well and you’re just stuck?
Are you worried about your baby’s reoccurring sicknesses and don’t want to continue to use Tylenol + antibiotics as the answer?
Are you doubting that your child’s symptoms are “normal” despite your doc saying that everything is fine?
Are you wanting the right tools and resources to raise a healthy, thriving family?

Hi, I’m Melissa.
I have been relentlessly pursuing health since my early teen years, trying everything under the sun in order to look and feel my best. The trial and error game of wellness ultimately led me to a career where I’ve helped thousands of people get to the bottom of their health struggles, feel their best and be present through each stage of family life. A nourished family = a happy family.
Depending on our journey together, I am with you each step of the way to integrate the right changes into your lifestyle and give you a roadmap to prepare your body + get pregnant, heal your body after having kids and address your child’s health concerns. My goal is for you to become confident in your health choices for both yourself and your family.
I do this using a combination of functional lab testing, nutritional analysis and a self-paced course to look at your whole body + current lifestyle, digging deeper for root causes and not just making symptoms manageable. For many, I have helped them get to the root of their health challenges and find answers that no previous practitioner has been able to figure out.
Who I Work With
I recognize that we are each in different seasons of life and our health and thus my approach won't be for everyone. As a practitioner, I have done extensive training to stop trying all the random things and actually hone in on your body and the root causes of your challenges from ALL aspects of your life and not just nutrition and exercise.
My offerings are crafted around a whole body, whole life approach.
You are tired of being told "everything is normal" by your doctors even though you don't feel fine
Want to avoid medication and a "pill for an ill" and learn how to heal your body from the inside out
Want clarity on how to eat for a healthy metabolism outside of weight loss
Are open to suggestions on the quality of the food you eat + the products you use in your home
Understand that true health costs money and you're willing to prioritize your health over other things in your budget
Want to learn more about low-toxin living and be confident in your buying choices
You are looking for a quick fix or short-term program
Your only goal or main goal is to lose weight
You are vegan or vegetarian and refuse to try a different approach
You won't change other aspects of your life- like cleaner water, air and products in your home
You aren't willing to cut back on your commitments to focus on your health
You aren't willing to financially invest in your health out of your own pocket (I don't take insurance)
Don't think toxins are that big of a deal in our world and aren't willing to learn how they are impacting your body.

If you’re on the fence about hiring someone to help, but have been spinning your wheels with no results, no explanations, not feeling heard by your doctor, constantly switching doctors, having friends and family either exhausted by your struggle or just they don’t have the bandwidth to support you, you HAVE TO work with Melissa. She IS the missing piece to your, potentially, years long puzzle. You are not crazy, you are not lazy, you are not wrong about feeling like your body is working against you. You just need someone who can look at it from a bird’s eye view and that, my friend, is Melissa. Money spent on co-pays that either get you no new answers or someone pumping a new pill to help a symptom are wasted funds. Invest in yourself, invest in your health, invest in giving your mind a break from thinking there is no end to the cycle that you are living in, because I can PROMISE you, once you sign up with Melissa you are on the path to a solution.
For two years, I was experiencing gut and digestive issues, hormonal imbalances from 8 years on birth control, horrific acne, sleep issues during different periods of my menstrual cycle… the list goes on. Working with Melissa has completely changed my life around and I’m so happy to say I do not suffer from any of the above symptoms anymore 🙂 Through lifestyle and diet changes recommended by Melissa based on my test results and supporting supplementation, I feel 100% back to my old self again, even better actually! Melissa is the most personable and experienced person I’ve ever worked with in the health and wellness space. Her protocols were so in-depth and personalized based on my specific needs, I almost feel like I didn’t deserve how much help I received from her. I’ve had the most pleasant experience working with her and my body is very grateful 🙂
Melissa was an answer to my prayers. I didn’t realize how sick I was until I started to feel better. I honestly don’t even know how I functioned for the months leading up to finding her. She actually spends time with you and listens. I appreciate how testing is so important to her and creating individual plans. She wants what is best for each of her clients, and I will continue to use her for the years to come for myself and my entire family!
I was pretty discouraged when coming to Melissa. I’d mostly accepted that the pain and fatigue I was feeling were just a new normal for me as a mom of three young children. A friend recommended I try seeing Melissa to see if she could help me, and after the tests were run, and I started the my simple “getting back to health” plan, I literally cried tears of joy that the symptoms I was experiencing weren’t normal and that I didn’t have to live the rest of my life feeling this way. Melissa coached me on how to get back on the track toward health. I work in the medical field and had been “clean eating” and exercising for years, but there were some key pieces missing that I didn’t figure out until seeing Melissa and getting a comprehensive picture of what was going on with my body. I’m confident that with the knowledge and information that Melissa has provided me with that I will never go back to accepting feeling the way I previously did as normal. I feel like a new person and want everyone to know that there are still practitioners out there like Melissa who want to do more than mask the symptoms you’re feeling and actually get you back on a road towards health!
Working with Melissa has truly changed the way I view my health! This past spring my health wasn’t the best it could be. I was 1 year postpartum, had very low energy, unexplained symptoms and weight gain. Long story short, my thyroid levels were off but I didn’t love my doctor’s recommended treatment plan (or lack thereof). That’s when I turned to Melissa to try to heal my body naturally!
At our consultation, Melissa immediately gave me suggestions to start improving my health. I started her recommended protocol at the end of June and within days I felt like a completely different person! By the end of summer my energy levels soared, I had lost 17lbs and I knew how to care for myself based on what my body needed. I had the knowledge of why my body needed certain nutrients too! Now my thyroid levels have drastically improved and I am no longer considered to have a thyroid issue. I will continue to look to Melissa for support in all things wellness!
