Melissa Reese is a Holistic Practitioner, teacher, author, and speaker. She has a BA in Psychology from ASU and post education from Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, The Empowerment Partnership, and other training programs. She is a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Psych-K practitioner, Break Through Life Coach, and Jikiden Reiki specialist. She has over 1,800 hours of training. She is the author of two books, "The Pursuit of Forgiveness 2.0: Unlocking Pragmatic Forgiveness" and "The Pursuit of More: Get what you want from life."
She started her journey in the healing arts as an observer, watching her mom and dad transform their lives in a matter of ten days. Then, she became a client. Melissa started mainly with Hypnotherapy, and then NLP, Reiki, Acupuncture, and herbs. The work she did profoundly helped her transform her life in a very short period of time. She learned how to clear her anger, communicate more efficiently and effectively, and how self-care and self-work is imperative to implement as a regular part of life. Being an effective practitioner means doing the work. She is a strong believer in "walking the talk." She also loves to learn through workshops, special training, reading, documentaries, and authentic conversations. She believes in the power of forgiveness and the importance of healing. She has overcome serious illness, worked through toxic relationships, and learned the importance of the word no, the word yes, and what boundaries mean.
Melissa helps people break-through and clear their “crap” (mental and emotional baggage) so that they can pursue what has seemed out of reach and experience freedom, joy, happiness, and love more deeply and more often.
"The journey lies within the pursuit." You have many pursuits and only one journey.
