Hello and Welcome!

I am Maria Mellano. For the past 25 years, I’ve been a psychotherapist and in private practice for 15 of those years. My commitment is for all people to bloom lives they authentically love, simply being themselves. A fun fact about myself is I was born and raised in Southern California, and I grew up on a flower farm that’s been in my family for a century from when my grandparents immigrated to the US from Italy. I am also passionate about ending violence which gets expressed through my volunteering work with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals through a transformational thinking and leadership program: Another Way to Go.  I am passionate about sexual and pelvic health as a foundational form of healing and empowerment for all women and am honored to support education in this realm through the Birds and the Bees, 2.0 Webinars that I host. And, I am passionate about the soul's capacity to guide our healing journey when we allow it to align with our ego, and work as a team. I love hosting the weekly Pause at the Well offering that supports this very thing. And, I hope you'll reach out to discover how we might align and work together therapeutically, through coaching, and/or in community.
