Her optimism, guidance, and sense of humor have shown me that I can challenge my personal boundaries, incorporate my core values with daily tasks, and calm my inner critic. I felt at ease during our conversations and energized to improve my personal and professional well-being after each session.

Through our coaching, I reached beyond my self-imposed limits to live my true purpose. I now wake up each morning excited to do work that is fulfilling with a team that inspires me.

I highly recommend Melissa, especially during a time of transition.” BD, speech-language pathologist

 

“Working with a coach has been a useful tool as I look at my life and evaluate tough choices. Melissa Page Deutsch has been a fantastic encourager and involved thinker, partnering with me as I decide what to do with with my gifts and talents in the midst of being a mother and teacher. She’s close enough to care, but far enough away to provide a valuable perspective that I don’t have on my own.” AJH, Alaska


“In the year I’ve been working with Melissa, our coaching has provided the motivation and direction to put me back on the path to self fulfillment. Her gentle encouragement, guidance and support have helped me to quiet my mind so I could discover what I truly wanted – and then helped me achieve it.” Jen H., Norfolk, VA


“Choosing to be coached by Melissa is one of the best gifts I’ve ever given myself! Melissa possesses such patience, peace, and intelligence that I knew that she would help me dig deep to determine what makes me feel most purposeful.

With Melissa’s guidance I harnessed my well-adjusted and balanced approach to life and was able to discern a better direction. I allowed myself to break away from the constraints of past expectations (from myself and others) and forge a new, more fulfilling path.

No longer am I bogged down with worries about disappointing others or doing enough for others. I am now able to recognize what is best for myself and balance that with the needs of others more effectively and fully.

I chose to say YES to this new mindset with Melissa’s help. Life coaching with Melissa is the breath of fresh air I never knew I had!” – Kathy L.,wife and  mother of two, speech therapist, Virginia Beach


“I had the opportunity to work with Melissa as a coach and found the coaching to be very positive, thought provoking and insightful.   The simple tool she used to guide self-reflection was great kick off into an engaging conversation.  Her listening style was warm, yet objective.  The way she was able to express what she was gathering from our conversation not only showed her engagement in what I was saying, but also her intuition regarding the things I wasn’t able to put into words.  I believe she has a natural gift.  The things she shared resonated with me and motivated me to use my strengths and values to build upon in order to move forward, prioritize, and face upcoming challenges.  I gained clarity and empowerment from my experience with Melissa, and would confidently recommend her to anyone. “ – Erin, MN

“Melissa designed with me a safe place to openly explore and share my thoughts without judgment. Her questions were very clear and concise and she continuously checked in with me to make sure she understood what I was saying. There is no question that Melissa’s passion and gentleness are genuine.” – J. M. Harris, Cary, NC
