About Melissa LaPointe
I work with the trailblazers, the dreamers and the visionaries
who want to live their best lives while doing work they love.
I started my OT journey as a pediatric therapist on an early interventionist team before shifting gears to start my own private practice in women's health + family wellness. After five years of owning a small business, I took another leap of faith and went all in on my work as a performance coach and business consultant.
With my background and training in women's health, leadership and service-based entrepreneurship, I have a unique perspective in my work. I'm intimately aware of what's working for therapists as they venture out on their own as consultants, coaches and business owners -- and I understand the common roadblocks and obstacles.READ MORE OF MY STORY >>
