“We are beautiful, complicated, messy beings, and we have such an incredible capacity to love and live life, but sometimes life gets off track for us. Our dreams evolve and sometimes dissolve into reality and we find ourselves disconnected from who we are, where we are and what we want to become. I love helping my clients find their way back to their inner dreamer. Healing is possible, and I want to help you to reconnect to your heart and soul all over again.” – Melissa
