Melissa came into our family’s life during a very tough time with my 13-year-old son. He had had a traumatic experience that left him angry and defensive. After meeting Melissa I knew right away she was going to be a good inspiration and friend to my son. She quickly bonded with him and was able to give him some great insight and how to cope with his crosses through recreation and working with her therapy dog. She not only challenged him to do different activities but became his health coach. My son is doing great now and has made a good friend in Melissa. I thank you for making a tough situation better for our family. You went above and beyond and we are truly grateful.
I would highly recommend her services to all who are in need. May you have continued success with your business.

Melissa has been a blessing to our family as a whole. Our daughter suffers from a sensory process disorder along with anxiety and self-regulation difficulties. Through the tools and strategies that our daughter has learned from the customized program, she has grown tremendously. She has a new found confidence. She has learned to assert her needs and understands better what she has control over and to let go of things she can not change. It fills my heart with happiness when I know the pain and struggle that has been lifted from our daughter. Her smile beams and she can now better understand how to overcome daily challenges. I highly recommend Melissa's services to anyone who is struggling.
