Hello & Welcome!

Thanks for stopping in.

How are you doing today?

Have you taken the time to be curious, to be creative,
or for self-care 

No? It is ok. I know it is tough right now. There are so many changes happening in the world and you are just trying to keep up, trying to be authentic, or trying to find a way to thrive in this new world of work and life. Maybe you are even looking for a change.

Check out Counterbalance Coach, Dr. Melissa L. Strawser on Podcasts, Radio, & other Media!

I am Dr. Melissa L. Strawser, life and mindset coach, consultant, yogi, and recovering wiped-out worrier!

After years of working in highly stressful, corporate environments, surviving a Category 5 hurricane, and enduring a life changing global pandemic, I decided to hang up my business suits and make a change. That change was to resign from corporate life and double down on myself.

I made the decision to pursue my passion for helping others connect to their voice and dreams, tell their stories, and grow into their most authentic selves.

If you are a business leader, I want to help you be more effective, more clear, and more emotionally intelligent when working with your teams in either an in-person or remote post-pandemic environment.

Enough about me. Let’s talk about you!

Would you like to go from being

A Worrier to a Warrior?

Always Wiped-Out to Consistently Wonder Filled?

Completely Burned-Out to Living Your Best Life?

My mission is to help you or your organization evaluate
where you are, where you would like to go, and
how to get there from here.

Goal Setting

I can help you set reasonable goals and I’ve got the tools to help you achieve those goals, too!

I hope you will accept my invitation to come in, pour a cup of tea or coffee, sit down, and stay awhile. My hope is that something will spark your curiosity, spark you to make a change, or help you become more resilient. If nothing else…give you a moment to breathe.

With Gratitude,

“Doc” Melissa
