ABOUT ME

MELANIE GALLO, PhD

I’m Dr. Melanie Gallo – a cognitive behavioral coach with a PhD in business psychology. Some might also recognize me as a Forbes contributor specializing in thinking habits, emotional wellness and personality within the world of work. 

Psychological science provides the foundation for Melanie C Gallo WorkLife Coaching and understanding human behavior within the Work+Life overlap. Using methodologies from social & personality psychology, positive psychology, cognitive psychology, and business psychology, you will be armed with the tools to achieve true personal & professional fulfillment.

After 25 years of research, work in the private sector, and of course personal experience, I believe that work-life is not as much about balance as it is about navigating through the mental fog that can disrupt our emotional and physical health – and ultimately our productivity. Trying to actually balance work and life is like wobbling around trying to balance like a juggler on a unicycle. If that's balance, then I'll pass on the circus act!

My passion is in helping professionals navigate through this fog within the Work-Life overlap to boost mental and physical energy. The end result should be Work+Life = Joyful.
