Melanie helps clients repair and enhance their physical and emotional connections, so that they may enjoy their relationships to the fullest potential. With a gentle but direct approach, she works with clients to help them be more intentional in their sexual encounters. She offers a judgment-free space that encourages exploration and authenticity, and she is sex-positive, LGBTQA+ affirming, and has experience working with poly and open relationships.
