Let's Work Together

I’m Melina, your integrative self-care coach, and educator. I help amazing women of color like you overcome emotional overwhelm and burnout by being a pro at self-awareness, navigating their emotions, and emotional and spiritual self-care. I will help you create a holistic and integrated self-care practice that you can implement every day.

It's the help you've been looking for.

I love helping women, like you, regain your personal power back by building a healthier relationship with yourself and reminding you of the value of making yourself and your health your top priority in your life.

My goal as your coach is to help you manage your emotions in the best way possible. I am your advocate by helping you heal the emotional and spiritual wounds that are getting in the way of you nourishing yourself.

Become that badass, resilient woman who feels confident and at peace in her authenticity. The first step is to secure your spot now – spots are limited.

I also teach you valuable emotional intelligence and wellness skills that will help you foster introspection, self-awareness, and emotional management outside of our sessions so that you may navigate this period of your life with a sense of empowerment and ease.

Because I value an integrated and holistic approach to emotional wellness, I connect you with other professionals who share my approach to individualized holistic health during special times, to help facilitate your healing at a physical and spiritual level.

Throughout the years I have seen therapists on and off, and frankly, it always felt like a waste of money and time, and the journey left me disappointed, undervalued and underwhelmed. Melina and I met in graduate school, and since then I had kept track of her career from afar, and when I saw that she was launching her own business providing coaching and behavioral health support, I was very excited to see her growth. Fast forward to a moment in my life when I felt like I needed to make the effort, one more time, to find a therapist. But this time it was different—I knew that I needed someone who looked like me, could provide culturally congruent care and was able to offer a decolonized space to heal. I reached out to Melina, and it has been the best decision I have made in life. I am 34 years old, and for the first time ever, I feel like I have been able to heal from the wounds of my childhood and make significant changes toward mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. The fact that everything can be done virtually is extremely convenient, given that I live in Michigan. In Melina, I found the support I needed to become the best version of myself, and this will probably be a lifelong relationship.

How the program works



I need to provide each of my clients with the utmost time and focus when working with them, so spots to working 1:1 are limited to 10 spots at one time.


We will talk about your current challenges and sources of overwhelm and burn-out. We’ll also talk about who you are as a person, your loves and strengths, and your current self-care practices. Finally, I will provide you with a diagnostic consultation on what I feel contributes to your challenges and how my services can help.


I will make recommendations as to what I feel is the best plan for you based on your readiness and level of commitment to making changes towards your healing and self-growth. Once you’ve chosen to become a client, we will discuss a plan and your goals for the program and start working!

By the end of the program, you will feel...

  • Like an empowered, badass slaying all areas of your life all day.
  • Confident to be authentically you no matter who you’re around or what is happening
  • At peace with who you are and your past, present, and future
  • Grounded and in tune with your body
  • Self-reliant and independent
  • Empowered to set healthy boundaries with others and yourself

Are you ready to be a badass at daily self-care?


In the words of Jack Johnson, “It’s always better when we’re together.” I am not just your coach, but your partner and best friend through your self-care journey.
