People say that what we’re seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. What we seek is an experience of being alive. ~ Joseph Campbell

Is Health Coaching Right for You?
I discovered health coaching well into my personal journey of self-healing through food and self-care in 2004 when I enrolled in Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Today, I help multipassionate creative types make (more) time and money for self-care by helping them reimagine and reinvent their work/life.
If you’ve never worked with a health coach before, this free download is your chance to explore the world of health coaches and find out if investing in a health coach is the right move for you.

How to Show Up for Yourself
Self-Care is a powerful experience in reclaiming your right to feel good in your body and in your life. What does that look like for you? Here are three of my favorite topics I explore with clients.
How to Work Yourself Out of a Job
I feel doing what you love and living passionately are attainable pursuits. But not everyone’s clear on just how you do that. Here are some of my insights and reflections on the subject.
I’m Melissa Danielle and I’m so glad you’ve found me! I live at the intersection of ideas, imagination, action, and synergy. My work and my life are constantly evolving. Three years ago, I was burning the candle at both ends trying to make a name for myself in local food advocacy and coaching. I was burnt out and miserable. So I got back to basics (basic needs, core desires) and mapped out a new story for my life.
Today, I’m living comfortably working part-time. I’m still doing what I love – coaching, building community around local food – but in a way that resonates with core values and desires for my life. Everyday, I’m getting closer and closer to having it all.
What’s my secret?
I gave work/life balance the finger.
I gave up my endless pursuit of happyness.
I gave up trying to DO IT ALL.
Today, I choose to be driven by my desires (feelings and activities that give me pleasure) over obligation and expectation.
- being healthy is a choice
- people should be guided to do what feels best for them economically and ecologically
- you can blur the lines between work and play when you are guided by your desires
- self-care is a revolutionary act
- a creative outlook on life keeps us connected and flexible amidst constant change
I’ve worked with public health professionals, farmers, food makers and shakers, recent college grads, young moms, communities with special needs, wealthy people, people who want to be wealthy, and everyone in between. I’ve met hundreds of people during my journey and no matter where I go, it’s all the same: We all want to feel safe and secure, and feel good in our bodies and in our livelihoods.
Today, I work primarily with creative and wellness women who find themselves too busy to enjoy the life they thought self-employment would afford them. I show them how to reimagine a life that makes space for everything that nourishes them from a divinely woman and pleasure-centered space.
