When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve?

It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their health and goals with a trained professional. As a Certified Health Coach (AADP), I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.


Could one conversation change your life? Schedule a “The Next Right Step Strategy Session” with me today!

Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

No one diet works for everyone. I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.

See what others have experienced….
As a mom, wife, and full-time employee I struggled in the area of self-care; partnering with Melanie was a big commitment to taking care of myself. Coming into the program I felt that I had knowledge of what I needed to do to increase my health, but I needed someone to walk the path with me and help keep me accountable to myself. Melanie assisted me in writing my goals and helped me keep my focus on them. I also learned more about food, activities, and therapies that I could try to help me reach my goals. I was suffering with chronic yeast infections and doctors were no longer helpful. With Melanie’s support I was able to make the decision and follow through on removing sugar and other triggering foods from my diet for a month while taking supplements to allow my body to heal and stabilize healthy yeast levels. It worked! I really enjoyed our meetings and the regular reminders to take care of myself. I was super impressed with the summaries that Melanie emailed after each meeting. I gained a more positive outlook on life and am so grateful for Melanie and the opportunity to partner with her. Christine – Individualized Health Coaching Program

I definitely would recommend this program! We all need help and support when we try to change things in our lives. Change is always easier  when we have a professional to guide us, someone who can keep us accountable and  someone who can answer our questions. I don’t think I would be where I am now  without getting coaching from Melanie. It would have taken me a lot longer to
get here on my own.    Sarah P - Individualized Health Coaching Program  

Clean Eating Program
“The 28 day clean eating challenge was a great experience. The menu offered new
recipes and ingredients that I may not have tried on my own. Melanie’s support
along the way was encouraging and helped keep me on track. I enjoyed the
challenge and continue to make clean eating a priority.”
