I love the safe & gentle way Maci has supervised me in this group. She has deep wisdom and her feedback supports developing essential resources.
Melissa combines heart, soul, sensitivity, and wisdom in a marvelously gifted way. She embodies the Hakomi process and the principles and teaches by word, action, interaction and being.
I was pleasantly surprised by the positive impact this group had on my work. It is the supervision group that I have been looking for. I hope you do more of them.
I can’t say enough about how much I value having had the opportunity to be taught by Melissa. She is such an inspiration to me and has taught me immensely…She is exceptional as a teacher and therapist and I feel blessed to have known her.
Maci is an extraordinary person and an illuminating supervisor. She has a unique ability to foster the personal growth of the therapist, while addressing the many technical facets of the Hakomi Method. She does this with immense kindness, deep respect and wisdom.
You are amazing. Thanks for your precision and clarity, one of my favorite things about you. You really go for it when you see it and for me that’s a big gift. Really appreciate the feedback and close engagement.

Maci’s supervision is inspiring and exploratory. I’ve gotten many insights on what is happening in the session and within myself.
