"When I started working with Melody I had a tight/closed off feeling in my chest, I had always had a hard time giving and receiving love. Melody guided me through a process that allowed me to release the grief I was carrying from certain relationships. I literally felt lighter when we were done. I have the tools continue to process and release past hurts so I can live the most vibrant, full life I know I can. Thanks Melody for your enthusiastic delivery and gentle but relentless work with me."

"I met Melody several years after the death of my father. My memories of him were tainted by negative emotional baggage. I knew I didn’t want to carry anger and resentment for the rest of my life. I wanted to remember my father as someone who did the best he could have done. I wanted the freedom to remember him with love and genuinely miss him. Melody’s unique mixture of compassion and skill gave me the safe space I needed to work through the baggage. More importantly, she was able to walk me through the process in a short period of time. What a load it took off my shoulders! I highly recommend Melody to anyone struggling with loss and the grieving process."

PK, Calgary

"Melody allowed me to express my emotions and feelings in a nonjudgmental, respectful and safe environment (that I couldn’t do with family) in order to come to terms with a life changing event. Working with her brought me peace, because I finally felt like I was heard."

Tanya Gisborne, New Zealand

"I can't thank Melody enough. When I lost my dad to dementia I was feeling pretty rotten. That’s when I found her program. It helped me understand earlier losses in my life and things that happened when I was a very young girl. I feel at peace about my dad, and although I know there will be waves of grief, her program definitely helped me process my emotions."

SL, Edmonton

"Before I worked with Melody I always felt like something was missing, almost like an invisible wall stood between the life I wanted and the life I had. I avoided talk about the loss of loved ones and the divorce I had gone through. Melody helped me work through years of unresolved grief. This process this freed me up to work towards being my best self in all aspects of life. I highly recommend working with Melody."

"Melody was the first person who was able to help me heal my grief as well as my physical symptoms. I was experiencing deep grief resurfacing around my dad who passed away 12 years earlier. Every time I thought of him, I had sharp heart pain. I was highly sensitive to gluten and learned from a doctor that this was energetically connected to unresolved issues with a father. Melody gently and compassionately guided me through a process that led me to deep peace. I now live pain and allergy free thanks to her guidance."

TB, Calgary

"Melody is a warm, open and gifted facilitator. She led me through the process of finding peace and acceptance with many losses after my divorce. I learned how to forgive myself and others, something I continue to use in my day to day life. I saw how food was my comfort through happy times, bad times and everything in between. With this awareness, after years of trying, I finally reached my goal weight. I recommend Melody to anyone looking to make a life change and move forward through their loss and grief."

LV, Calgary

"When I started to work with Melody I was skeptical if the program was right for me. Overall I was a happy person and I didn’t think I had any significant losses to deal with. My main focus was to make positive changes around my eating habits to better align with my passion for fitness. At first, I had a hard time connecting my assumptions around what grief was to the changes I wanted to make in my health. However, as I worked with Melody, I started to see how things from my past, even childhood, have impacted some of the behaviours I was trying to change. I gained insight into how I developed those behaviours in the first place. More importantly, this insight enabled me to make meaningful and sustainable changes. Thanks Melody! "

KC, Manitoba

"Working with Melody was absolutely life changing! What I learned impacted every area of my life. I learned that no matter what happens in my life, it doesn’t just happen; I choose it! Today I know who I am and where I am going. I’ve made peace with my past and I am moving forward with more enthusiasm and energy than I’ve had in years!"

"Melody is incredibly intuitive. Her laser coaching helped me to quickly identify my truest desires & develop a plan to go after them. She helped me navigate the many bumps along the road to my success. Melody is committed to helping people make their difference in the world. If you are clear on your direction but continually stumped or if you are unclear and need support in figuring it out, I highly recommend Melody."

KS, Calgary

"The tragic death of a colleague led me to Melody. While I grappled with making sense of the loss, Melody gently helped me see grief in a new way. Surprisingly, my biggest challenge wasn’t this most recent loss; rather it was surfacing and working through grief I thought was firmly in the past, but was silently holding me back every day. Now that I have healed family relationships I feel calm and complete, know myself better, and feel equipped to take on life’s difficult experiences. I have freed myself to live fully. I feel extremely fortunate to have been guided through this process by Melody as she is a truly gifted guide and a wonderful human being."

DP, Calgary


"I was introduced to Melody by a friend who knew I needed support and I’m grateful. Melody not only helped me heal my broken heart, she inspired me to see a new perspective with her “what if” questions. I gained skills that I use daily in my life and in my career. I’m a better person, mother and teacher as a result. I want everyone to have these tools!"

KDS, Calgary

"Melody has intuition and wisdom well beyond her years. She coached me through some challenging career events. From the first conversation Melody created a welcoming feel and naturally helped me identify the issue as well as underlying themes. Her amazing way of listening allowed me to walk through each particular grievance, detail the repair, and begin the healing. Melody has a genuine willingness to help people improve themselves and their life."


C. Dobler, St. Louis

"Plain and simple, working with Melody changed my life. The exercises she guided me through helped me to change my thinking about myself and my life. Although I was pushed out of my comfort zone and into a place I'd never gone before, Melody was there every step of the way. Working with Melody changed my life. It can change yours too."


"Working with Melody has been one of the most positive personal learning experiences that I have had. Melody’s gentle yet persistent and loving approach created the ideal safe place for me to reflect and observe. I moved further and learned faster than I have been able to do in any other setting."

TW, Calgary

"I heard Melody speak at Biz Bang in April 2018. She shared some very personal stories. When I spoke to her afterwards I told her how brave I thought she was. This got me wondering why I felt I had to be brave to share my feelings. That’s when I decided to work with Melody. She made it safe for me to identify, share and release old emotions that I didn’t even realize I was carrying. This helped me to feel more clear than I have for a long time."


DM, Calgary

"As a parent, I thought I knew all I needed to as far as effectively parenting my young teens through loss and grief. During a time when several close family and friends passed this changed. With Melody’s guidance, I turned what I learned into better parenting and personal responses. Not only did I learn how to support my children I also learned how to more effectively deal with loss myself. I strongly encourage all parents to work with Melody to gain the highly effective, critical and invaluable life skills that have benefited not only me but my kids, now and forever."
