Christian Life Coaching
& Mental Health Coaching

Feeling stuck and overwhelmed?

Want to flourish in your life and relationships while following God's plan for you?

I'd love to help you develop a plan to achieve your goals so you can transform your mind, live in freedom and draw closer to God in the process!

Ditch the negative cycles and live with daily peace and joy. 

Coaching might be a good fit if you are struggling with any of these things:

  • Worries that overwhelm and keep you stuck

  • You want to make a change in your life but not sure how to get there

  • You want more consistent peace and purpose 

  • You have a pattern of negative thought cycles that are based on false beliefs

  • Fears that keep you from trusting God consistently

  • Thoughts that seem to take over and keep you from engaging in the moment with family and friends 

  • Feeling confused about how to incorporate your faith in God as you work on your mental health

  • Overwhelm with parenting, homeschool and relationships. 

  • A desire to live with more purpose but not sure where to start

  • OR you just want extra support and accountability on your journey!

I'd love to support you on your journey to thriving in your life and relationships while living out your God-given purpose.

"Thank you Mel for your deep discernment, insight and fresh perspective each time I visit with you. 
I started coming to you for help in two very challenging/exhausting areas of my life. 
However, the work we have done has permeated my entire life. I have seen positive change as a person in many facets of my day to day life. What a delightful surprise!  I was not expecting that!."

-Elizabeth P.

Coaching vs. Counseling

Even though I was a licensed counselor for 12 years, I no longer offer counseling services but can work with you as a coach. This means I do not diagnose or work with those facing severe symptoms that need professional help.

I do coach those who want help reaching goals, learning new skills
to find consistent freedom, assistance developing a plan to reach goals, ways to transform your mind and apply effective strategies to help you thrive.
You may want to work on a specific area of your life like work, relationships or personal development. You may have had counseling in the past, or just struggle with a lot of fear or worry and are looking for someone to come along side you on your journey. I can also help you navigate a care plan and know when to seek outside help to support your body and mind. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

*My sessions are currently conducted via zoom or phone call (whichever you prefer). I offer limited in-person sessions in Oviedo, Florida.

I offer individual sessions and coaching packages.
