Hi! I’m so glad you’re here.
My name is Melissa Rapoport and I’m just as tired as you are with quick-fix gimmicks and fads that play on your emotions (trust me, I tried them too. No judgment!).
I take pride in giving not only support, but direction and accountability to all my clients. The programs I’ve created all are centered around you. Whether I hold a dedicated space for you each week via private coaching or you work with me through one of my programs, I want you to know I will personally keep you on track and moving consistently toward your goals.
I don’t put you on a “diet,” an unhealthy cleanse, or a detox. I don’t endorse any particular line of products. I believe that a lifetime of good health is the result of changing self-limiting beliefs, a balanced approach to nutrition, and creating happiness in order to fuel and nourish your life.
Sounds great, right?
The fact of the matter is you have EXACTLY what it takes to be EXACTLY where you want to be, too. Together, we can put you on that path.
Like you, I let my past problems dictate my current circumstances. I moved to New York after college and did what I thought was the right thing by entering a career in advertising. I had everything people would consider a great life: I was married and had a successful career.
To be honest, I was just plain miserable.
So I did what I thought would make me happy. I started a coffee business. But that too, was someone else’s idea of a dream life.
I went back to school to find my calling. After receiving departmental honors for original research in the area of gender development, I enrolled in the Developmental Psychology master’s program at Teachers College, Columbia University.
I was finally happy but my dream of earning a doctorate got derailed. The events surrounding 9/11, divorce, and single parenthood put my dreams on hold and out of reach.
For years, it was really hard to get out into the world. I dreaded work. I was in financial paralysis and lost my home. Deep down in my core I believed that I would struggle and be unhappy for the rest of my life.
But all was not lost. I finally found my way.
I closed my coffee business and took control of my finances. I found a new home and a loving relationship. I used my degree from Columbia University, along with my coaching education, to support people like you, which I love to do every single day.
And guess what? Once I turned my life around, I lost 30 pounds. Most importantly, you can do it, too.
