I went to Melissa many years ago for hypnosis for insomnia. I was also one of her earliest students, in her first hypnosis certification class. I haven't stopped learning from her since. Melissa has rare natural talents as a clinician. She is also more curious that Curious George and will go through books like a wild fire spreading though a prairie. You will rarely catch Melissa in the dark about something new in the field. Then there is her personality. She is as funny as she is warm and smart. And one of the most no-nonsense, let's-get-on-with-it type of person you will ever meet. The combination of all of the above makes her rather exceptional, whether the encounter is as a client or as a student. Refreshing and healing at the same time. Kudos to Melissa.
