It’s time to take the mystery out of getting unstuck and becoming unstoppable.

Life comes fast and hard (facts!)

Unexpected bills, job loss, or fights with your spouse can send your whole world into a tailspin. But, having the tools to bounce back from setbacks and remain positive even under pressure can give you the peace of mind you’ve been longing for.

I’ve got your back!

Hi, I’m Melanie! I have a long track record of helping clients develop the skills needed to manage stress, anxiety, anger, and phase-of-life changes. I launched Insights Academy to serve clients through short-term, results-oriented group sessions.

 "This course has completely changed my life and the way I communicate with EVERYBODY, not just my spouse."


“Before TalkType, my husband and I were headed to divorce. Small disagreements over the laundry turned into big three-day arguments fueled with threats of separation; this helped us get back on track. After the sessions with Melanie, we learned how to get our point across more clearly and effectively. Now that we communicate respectfully in a way that we both understand; small spats always stay small. I even use the tips I learned at the office. I could not be more grateful!”
