Hi, I'm Melissa
I’m a Bay Area-based life coach, wellness speaker, yoga and meditation teacher and founder of PURE Health Retreats.
I’m on a mission to help stressed out and overbooked Silicon Valley women and men filter through all the noise to find balance and focus in their lives. I love working with high performers who want to show up as their best self and help those rediscover their life’s direction.
I founded PURE Health Retreats because I kept seeing over and over that my coaching clients and yoga students were stressed to the max. I wanted to provide a welcoming space for clients to learn how to transform themselves through guided meditation, Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and personal life coaching. As a Certified Life Coach, 500 E-RYT Vinyasa Yoga Teacher & Energy Healer, my goal is to help you live with less stress so you can focus on the things that are truly important to you.
“Melissa’s coaching program enabled me to reach deeper inside my consciousness and really see where I needed to better connect with myself and, in turn, with the people I love. Now armed with a combination of lifestyle and stress management along with coping skills, I am moving forward with more positivity and sensitivity in all my relationships – including with myself.
Melissa is a complete professional. She made me feel at ease and ready accept who I am and what I am capable of achieving. I definitely recommend working with Melissa if you want to have a happy, healthy relationship – with yourself and others!”
“Melissa blends intelligence with insight to help you see where your world is working well and where it could be better. Because people are naturally adaptive, we tend to adapt to whatever our situation is, losing perspective about the most essential elements that make our lives great. With a combination of personal insight and an understanding of meditation, Melissa does a great job helping to identify those areas which are out of balance, and a path to improvement. For me, my nutrition was a big problem, although I didn’t know it, and my stress levels contributed to all sorts of eating and sleeping challenges. Melissa helped me to get on a plan that keeps my life in a balance.”
