About
Hello,
I'm Melissa Vine, and I'm here to help!

As a licensed mental health counselor and seasoned business owner in Des Moines, Iowa, I employ authenticity and humor to address the psychological forces at work behind our interactions with one another.

"The engagement with our team was awesome. Your presentation gave our team the infusion to move forward with the next phase of change." -Sharon

"We cannot thank you enough for participating in our seminar - the audience was the most lively during your presentation, and [our] lawyers learned a lot, too!" -Becky

"[You provided] an open platform to express ideas without being looked down on and [to be] enlightened on others' views."

Responding versus Reacting.
Staying with Healthy Discomfort.
Replacing Binary Thinking with Critical Thinking.
