From Heart to Paper
Private Coaching and Support for Writing Letters From Your Heart
The people you care about are so important to you.
So many people have touched your life – children, parents, siblings, your partner, mentors and friends – and you want to share the feelings in your heart with them in a way that lets them really feel all your love, care and gratitude.
And you wonder if they truly know how you feel about them.
But maybe thinking about sharing the depth of your feelings is vulnerable.
Or writing from your heart feels awkward, and you struggle to find the right words.
So you put it off.
Let me show you how to put your love down on paper and share the feelings in your heart.
Imagine writing a letter to your partner or relative to show them what you admire about and hope for them.
Imagine writing a letter to your child for a birthday or as they head off to the first day of high school or graduate from college.
Imagine sharing your gratitude with a mentor or colleague who has helped you along your path, a favorite uncle, or the friend who always has your back.
As a transformative writing coach, my mission is to help you connect more deeply with the special people in your life through exploration of your stories and shared experiences.
Learn how to write a letter from your heart with my support.
Your letter will create…
- The confidence to know you’ve touched your loved ones with your words; that you’ve shared what matters with them and that they heard you and are grateful for your love.
- A place to share family history or wisdom to guide your child before a big job interview or to show them what you hope for them and how you love them.
- Deeper connection and stronger bonds between you and the people you care about.
- New skills in using stories to connect with special people in a way that is joyful, fun and meaningful to them and creates happiness for you.
- The tools to write Letters from your Heart on your own, to more special people in your life.
Together in your Heart to Paper Package we will:
Recall and record the stories and experiences you’ve shared with one special person in your life
Explore your love, gratitude, hopes and dreams for that person and your relationship.
Compile the most meaningful moments and feelings into a Letter from your Heart – a treasure that they can return to over and over to feel your love and support.

When I set out to write a letter to my 16 year old daughter, I had no idea the wonderful internal journey Melanie would take me on. Not only will writing the letter be a treasure for my daughter, but the experience has been a wonderful memory for me. Recollecting memories and soul-filing times spent and putting them to paper was a deep and connecting experience. Melanie knows how to guide you to the meaning of what your heart wants to express and helps you confidently find the words to convey the emotions of your stories. I am so grateful for this experience and highly recommend time with Melanie for this amazing gift of Heart to Paper Letters!
Melanie was just amazing and sensitively guided me through the art of writing a letter to my son for graduation from college. Her passion and belief in what she is doing was evident through the entire process. With Melanie’s support and encouragement and genuine caring, the process of writing felt so very satisfying. I look forward to more opportunities to work with Melanie again. She really is a master!

When my mom approached her 85th birthday, Melanie recommended that I write her a Letter From My Heart, which subsequently turned into a photo book. It features all of our favorite mother/daughter experiences, with the Letter unfolding cleverly on each page. Memories we shared, lessons I learned, traits I admire, my profound love and respect for her… all captured into a perfect keepsake. For my mom, of course, it was an absolute treasure, but the unexpected gift that I received was the experience of reviewing and processing the many aspects of our multifaceted relationship. Kudos to Melanie for this brilliant idea and deftly coaching me. I am forever grateful.
Working with Melanie to write a Letter From Your Heart will have a lasting and positive impact on you. This is not just a “one-off” exercise. You will learn how to set the foundation for the lifelong practice of writing special messages for special people. You will receive expert direction and will come out on the other end with a whole new perspective of writing about what really matters and how to deepen connections with people who you care about.
