FOUNDER and CEO

 Hello and Welcome! 

I am Maria Mellano, LICSW/CP and I'm so glad you're here. I am the founder and CEO (chief evolutionary officer) of Integral Bloom. As a psychotherapist, psychodramatist, and coach, I help highly sensitive and inspired people make sense of the insights they are receiving to activate personal power and create highly purposeful lives. I specialize in helping therapists as therapy patients to heal from burn out, stress, and vicarious traumatization; then, as coaching clients to shine through your unique brilliance as thriving clinicians aligning your professional identity with your purposeful vision to attract your soul nourishing clientele.

    

My practice celebrates unity - where mind, body, and spirit intertwine to nurture complete health and vitality. Together, we journey from chronic stress to a life infused with love and purpose, shedding stress-inducing burdens along the way. Let's reclaim our sparkle and connection, as our lives reflect the quality of our relationships. Join me in crafting a new narrative full of vitality, purpose, and authentic connection to bloom a life you love.

    

I hope you will explore the clinicians who work in my practice, each gifted and skilled in their unique brilliance. I also invite you to explore my offerings designed to empower and heal, Pause at the Well and Birds and the Bees, 2.0.

Belen Lazaro

LIFE EMPOWERMENT COACH

Hello! My name is Belen Lazaro. Welcome to my coaching practice! I am a Life Empowerment Coach. I believe in the power of being present and the importance of addressing fears and limitations head-on. I have ten years of experience helping individuals from all walks of life discover their power in dealing with all types of circumstances. By delving into the essence of their being - my work with clients enables profound and lasting change.  With a deep proficiency in transformational ontological coaching, my unique style emphasizes keen listening, being able to see past what someones actually saying while listening for values rather than complaints. It also emphasizes being focused on having the facts be the main focus for dealing with life's circumstances from the here and now, rather than living from interpretations based on the past or fear of the future.

"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending"~ C.S. Lewis
