Mel's Message

We all want to feel loved, but sadly we struggle. Our relationships often begin with great promises of happiness and love, but the positive energy fades all too soon. Over time, you may have acclimated to boredom, mediocrity or conflict. Resigning yourself to this discontent can lead to depression, anxiety, resentment, and despair. You deserve better.

I believe that our relationship challenges are often due to our lack of education in this most precious undertaking. It’s a shame that the pillars of relationship weren’t part of our education, but why not learn them now?

You and your partner can learn the skills and strategies required to thrive. My work in couple’s counseling is focused on providing the clarity, insights and communication expertise for you to succeed in your partnering. I’ll help you learn and cultivate the 5 pillars of resilient relationships.

The 5 Pillars of Resilient Relationships

  • Emotional, verbal and physical intimacy
  • Compassion & empathy
  • Communication expertise
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Trust

How Mel Practices

My passion for understanding relationships at the deepest level and optimizing effective and intimate communication skills drive my ethic. I’ve written two books, given 2 TEDx talks, host The Possibility Podcast and wrote over 100 articles on these subjects. Please take an opportunity to sample these resources.

My style is warm and participatory, yet educational and motivational at the same time My work is my passion. I’ve never been accused of being a traditional therapist as I constantly seek new paths toward success.  I engage every couple and every individual from a sense of wonder and curiosity as I come to appreciate the unique tapestry of your life and your relationship. My goal is to get you from here to there.

Everyone desires to be understood and loved, but too often we encounter barriers. Many relationships start with great love and enthusiasm, but that initial spark can fade, leaving a sinking feeling of dissatisfaction. This can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and emotional disconnection. However, you deserve a relationship filled with understanding and joy.

I believe many relationship challenges arise from not having the necessary skills to manage complex emotional landscapes effectively. Learning these skills can transform your relationships.

You and your partner can develop the strategies needed to communicate effectively and handle transform conflict into new learning opportunities. My work in couples counseling focuses on providing the insights, understanding, and communication techniques essential for building a supportive and thriving relationship.
