Master your psychology with therapeutic insights for your life, relationships, & career

Top-performers seem like they have it all. They’re…

  • Highly motivated & Ambitious
  • Smart & Educated
  • Striving to be the best in all areas of their life

But the unspoken secret is that on the inside many of them feel like they’re:

  • Constantly taking on way too much
  • Always making sacrifices
  • Fighting a losing battle against self-doubt and unhappiness

The truth is that these thoughts are natural, and if you feel that despite all of your accomplishments you’re still not at peace with yourself, you’re not alone.

Unfortunately there is a flipside to success that can deeply affect the types of women who are always trying to achieve more. The emotional intelligence and ambition that often give them their edge can unfortunately also lead them to feel an increased sense of self-doubt and sabotages them from fully enjoying their achievements.

Sometimes they feel like they’re just on an incredible string of luck and are constantly afraid that their next project will be the failure that exposes them as a fraud (Imposter Syndrome). Others worry that with each new accomplishment what they’ve achieved is too good to be true and it’s going to come crashing down sooner rather than later (Upper Limit Problem). Or their success is overshadowed by baggage from dysfunctional relationships and negative patterns that follow them into the office.

Your success doesn’t have to be a source of suffering.

The good news is that many women have overcome the emotional challenges that come with success. I’m Melody, and I’ve found my calling helping women like you put an end to the cycles of guilt and unhappiness that hold you back from a lasting and balanced feeling of fulfillment.

What would it mean for you if you could fully enjoy your next promotion or achievement, instead of immediately worrying about whether you’re going to live up to the additional responsibility? How much more could you do each day if you were fully engaged instead of having the complications of a rocky relationship constantly dividing your attention? Don’t you deserve to be confident and content instead of always comparing yourself to others and feeling like you don’t measure up?

If you’re ready to break away from your self-destructive behaviors, I’d love to help you out. Subscribe to my email list for practical, weekly guidance to help you master your psychology using therapeutic insights for your life, relationships, & career.


Working with Melody has been a revelation I didn’t know I was waiting for. Everything felt beyond my control leaving me trapped and stuck, and no matter who I reached out to, I never quite felt understood. Even just a few minutes in, Melody’s clear understanding and empathy was such an unbelievable relief — someone got what was happening and that my feelings and reactions were entirely normal. There’s not enough space in the world to go into what a difference just a few weeks have made – restoring control and balance in my life – but I will not ever forget that first five minutes.

  1. 6 Signs Your Obsession With Productivity Is Hurting You

    6 Signs You’re A Productivity Addict

    Google “productivity” and you’re served up almost 18 million search results.

    Dive in and you’ll find blogs, websites, apps, op-eds, subreddits, consulting firms, podcasts and scientific studies devoted to the art of efficiency.

    Our obsession in modern society with doing more is rivaled only by our preoccupation with doing more harder, better, faster and stronger. We’re gunning the engines at max speed, cramming our work days full of tasks, then feeling guilty if we steal a quick second to call a friend or read a book for pure pleasure (gasp!).

    Here’s the irony: compulsion over productivity can do more harm than good.

    Addiction to productivity is a real thing—similiar to a dependence on a substance or food that leads to maladaptive behavior. Clinically speaking, addiction occurs when someone is engages in something that’s pleasurable, but the continued use or act becomes compulsive to the point of interfering with normal life responsibilities (work, relationships or health). To make matters worse, an addict may not be aware that his or her behavior is out of control.

    If you think you’re sliding into an addiction to productivity, here are a few questions to ask yourself:

    6 Signs You’re A Productivity Addict

    • Are you acutely aware of when you are “wasting” time? Do you beat yourself up for it?
    • Are you reliant on technology to optimize your time management?
    • Is your #1 topic of conversation how “crazy busy” you are?
  2. The One Reason You Shouldn't Obsess Over Your Mistakes

    The One Reason You Shouldn’t Obsess Over Your Mistakes

    You know how when you trip walking down the street, it feels like the entire cityscape of people is staring at you in amusement? Or when you’ve worn the same pair of pants three times in one week, you’re completely paranoid your colleagues are judging you for your lack of fashion sense (or cleanliness)? What about when you fumble over your words in a presentation, and then can’t stop thinking about how every person in the room now thinks you’re a terrible speaker?

    As human beings with an ego and an innate self-awareness of our own feelings, actions and thoughts, we tend to notice and greatly exaggerate our flaws while assuming everyone around us has a microscope focused on faults, mistakes and slip-ups. In truth, other people don’t notice them nearly as much as we assume. Why? Because they’re too busy noticing and greatly exaggerating their own flaws!

    This strange phenomenon is what’s known in psychology circles as the spotlight effect. You’re the center of your own world, and everyone else is the center of his or her’s. If you’re someone who sets high standards for yourself, your errors probably feel really difficult to move past. You might play your mistake on an endless internal feedback loop like a cinematographer in the editing room. Or maybe you talk through every facet of it with your significant other, best friend or a colleague over and over until you’re making them crazy, too.
