We now offer one on one coaching via phone with me (Melissa Balmer) from Long Beach California.


Once you book a session below I'll follow up with you to confirm your appointment, and will ask you a series of questions to make sure I'm clear on what you want to focus on. Sessions can be 1-time, or you can book a series of them.
