Are you ready to nurture your inner strength?

Hi, I am Melissa

I'm a mom of two boys, a clinical psychologist, an author, a TEDx speaker, and a Coach who is passionate about helping other moms who don't have the support and guidance of a loving mom by their side.

As someone who has experienced motherlessness, personally and professionally, I understand the feelings of insecurity, isolation, and overwhelm that can come with the territory. It can affect moms, whether they realize it or not, and it can significantly impact how they view themselves.

But here's the thing: your relationship with your own mom doesn't have to define you. I believe that resilience isn't just about having knowledge and skills - it's about overcoming hardships, having a supportive community, and living according to your own values.

That's why I created  Nurturing Your Inner Strength. Whether you're a brand new mom or you've been at this for a while, I want you to have the tools to be the amazing mom you are meant to be.
