Open relationships are challenging, confusing, and messy (even at the best of times). If you’re wanting support on how to find your way in the worlds of honest non-monogamy, the coaching I offer can help you make sense of it all. I work from a trauma-informed basis, and seek to empower you in your journey to embodied, authentic, joyful and loving relationships.
My ideal clients are social misfits, cultural rebels, who are seeking support on dating and relating in honest non-monogamous relationship configurations. I work with individuals, rather than couples, but can work with all parties in a relationship individually. I do not work with people seeking life-long monogamy.
Personal relationship coaching can enhance your self relationship as well as the relationships you share with others. Coaching is different from counselling and is definitely not the same as therapy: while counselling and therapy help to integrate past experiences into the present, I see coaching as what helps you move forward from the present, and into living and loving joyfully.
I am currently accepting new clients who wish to work with me on a regular basis, and am available for initial consultations, as outlined below. I offer coaching via Zoom, or via phone in Canada and the USA.
I accept payments via paypal or etransfer. For US and international clients I charge in US Dollars, for Canadian (domestic) clients, I charge in Canadian Dollars. My coaching rates for 2020 are $140/hr. Initial sessions are 75 mins, with follow ups usually 45 mins.
Sliding scale and instalment payment options are available, please send me a message me for more information. I am committed to keeping my work accessible for those who express a need for it but are experiencing financial hardship.
*** I am offering pay-what-you-can sessions to individuals whose income has been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. If this applies to you, please send me an email before booking ***

What to Expect From Coaching
With coaching, you are in the driver’s seat. The benefits you gain from this will depend on how you engage with this work, and your commitment to show up. It is not always easy, and sometimes I might challenge you to look at things that might get uncomfortable. It is absolutely okay to be uncomfortable, and I encourage you to be messy, imperfect, and honest (with yourself) about what your experiences are! Through many years of experience I have found that we grow when we lean in to those edgy, uncomfortable places, and look at what they want to teach us about ourselves, and our relationship with others.
Whether solo and single, looking for love, or in relationships and needing to spend some time nourishing your relationship with yourself- everyone can benefit from some personal relationship coaching.
Coaching can be a one-off session to troubleshoot a specific issue or learn some particular relationship skills, or coaching can be part of a long term plan for discovering ways to embrace your relationship as a path for transformation and growth.
Relationship coaching can cover a wide variety of topics, from opening up, understanding jealousy, conflict transformation, dating dynamics, and more.

Thank you Mel for such an enlightening and helpful workshop! I thoroughly enjoyed all of it and look forward to continued learning from you. So grateful for all these extra resources.
The work you are doing is changing the world in such positive ways, and helping people change their own worlds, both inner and outer.
Mel is an incredible listener and her attention to detail was crucial. I walked away with much more than I had anticipated: I came away with a lot of tools to work with, and also a comfortable understanding of who I am and how I present myself to others. Mel is nothing short of awesome at what she does, and I will continue to use her as a resource and recommend her.
"It was so good for me to open up and a relief to see that things don't have to be so black and white but within this there is still the possibility of clarity and a more personal, creative and radical approach to relationships... Love what you are offering Mel. You are awesome at what you are doing! It was great for me to be out of my comfort zone and to hear from folks who appeared to be very much in theirs. Thank you!"
"I desperately knew in my bones there was another script out there for me but when I struggled to find a healthy version of one, I haphazardly began writing it myself. And now?! To come into an entire community of people actively peeling back the veil to reveal their own trauma and vulnerability?? I am over the moon and feel so enthusiastic all the time. It's the first time in the last several years where I have had such sustained joy and direction."
~ Anon Course Student
"Your work has reminded me that perhaps there isn’t anything wrong with me at all. I am amazed at the deep levels of shame we carry as human beings because we don’t fit into the construct that is given to us as a model for our life. It feels exciting because I can now explore what I want for my life rather than be gifted something that just doesn’t feel right for me."
"After the workshop I felt like I could breathe again. I felt like my version of non-monogamy wasn't "wrong" and, even more helpful, my former partners wasn't either. I connected with people thinking of the same things as I was, struggling with the same things, and asking questions like me. I cried. I breathed. And for the first time in my life I didn't feel like a love alien dropped onto this planet."
