I’m Dr. Melanie and I’m a cognitive behavioral coach with a background in business psychology, a dōTERRA Wellness advocate, and Forbes contributor specializing in healthy thinking and healthy emotions. Not to be confused with cognitive behavioral therapy which often focuses on repairing the psychological difficulties that impair well-being and functioning, cognitive behavioral coaching focuses on achieving personal and professional fulfillment. It is science-based and grounded in the idea that, "what we think, we become". After having spent many years coaching professionals on thinking habits and emotional wellness, I was introduced to dōTERRA essential oils. After about A WEEK, I fell in love with how powerful and effective they were, and I particularly wanted to tell everyone about their impact on brain health! So, it was at that point that I was inspired to incorporate the dōTERRA business into my own business. I wanted to offer a more holistic approach to mental and physical wellness.

I believe that work-life is not as much about balance as it is about just navigating through the metal 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!🎪

The MCGC programs and services help professionals navigate through this fog within the Work-Life overlap to holistically boost the mental and physical energy to find your Work+Life Joyful.
