Melissa has been a Godsend.  She has helped me get perspective on my children- what they need to be successful and how to best guide them to that.  She reminds me of the long-term goals and what's realistic in the short-term.  She's sympathetic and compassionate when I share my parenting failures and excited for me when I share my successes.  She approaches parenting support from a holistic lens that considers the whole family's needs, family dynamics, environmental, financial, and psychological limitations.  She's non-judgmental and recognizes that parenting is hard under the best of circumstances and even harder when there are challenges.  In just a couple of months, I'm starting to recognize improvements in myself and my parenting as well as in my kiddos behavior.  It's a journey, but it's nice to know there is someone who can help me navigate it more successfully.

Melissa is a fantastic parent coach. She really helped us through a tumultuous time, as two exhausted parents with a baby and a preschool-aged child. She is kind and encouraging and takes an individualized approach, focusing not just on parenting frameworks and methodologies but also on really getting to know our family, including our and our children's temperaments and our priorities and realities as a family, so that her recommendations and guidance were grounded in what we needed and what was realistic for us at the time. We're so thankful for her!

Melissa was instrumental in getting my two children through various developmental milestones.  She supported my kids AND US PARENTS (!) as we struggled through things like potty training, proper sleep cycles, and tips for managing healthy relationships between our kids...Melissa was patient, but gave our family the tips and confidence to power through.  Can't recommend her enough!

Emily (New Haven, CT)

Melissa is a parenting guru! She deftly guided us through bumpy toddler milestones, and gave us executive functioning strategies to stay sane during the dark days of Covid- both kids and parents alike. Melissa helped us read between the lines of school and psychological assessments, and most importantly coached us to advocate for the interventions our student needed. We're so grateful to have Melissa in our corner- thank you!!
