Melinda is a wonderful spiritual counselor who is sensitive and intuitive. She helped me get out of my head and connect with my feelings, which was no small feat as I normally analyze more than feel. She listened to what I said, but more importantly she listened to what I didn't say and gently coaxed me into my heart. Any step backward was always viewed as only a prelude to positive forward movement and she was always correct. She was always on the lookout for any methods or materials for me to use in my continuing work towards becoming who I'm meant to be. Melinda came into my life at a critical time when I was at my lowest point and helped me pull myself out of a dark hole and into the light. I will always be grateful for her guidance, wisdom and understanding.
Melinda has great insight and has helped me to view circumstances in my life in a different light. In a compassionate manner, Melinda has equipped me with the tools to transform negative thought patterns into more healthy, self-affirming ones. She also helped me find my voice and trust my intuition. I highly recommend Melinda to anyone seeking an empathetic, insightful counseling experience.
I met Melinda at a local women's business group we both attended. I had never wanted to work, one on one, with a personal counselor for more than a couple of visits before meeting Melinda. I was drawn to her and after meeting with her the first time, I knew I wanted to continue to see her. We met for over a year and I always looked forward to our times together. It was at a time in my life that I truly needed direction and Melinda gave that to me. Her method of counseling for me was subtle yet powerful. She made me truly understand my accountability for my own actions. Melinda made me think! She helped me open my eyes to issues I had never been open about before. My life and my relationships began to improve within weeks. I know if ever I need help, I will call Melinda for clarity. Sue Parra Oracle, AZ.

I began counseling with Melinda Hutton in July 2014 for personal improvement. I continued my counseling with her until early 2018. I found her to be helpful and a good communicator. She helped me improve my outlook on life through both listening and offering suggestions. She was able to offer me some other methods of coping with life's problems. She helped me a great deal in my life. I would recommend her, and I will seek her counsel again if I have the need.
In the spring of 2013, I experienced two great losses: my opioid addicted husband was having an affair, and I sold my beloved café to my partner, an abusive and difficult man that I had gone into business with. I could barely breath, I was so deeply devastated. My days were filled with an overwhelming emotional pain, despite the fact that I had to pick up the pieces of my life, continue to raise my three children, and deal with the addict that was my now estranged husband. As blessings often do, Melinda dropped into my life at the very moment that I most needed a life-line. She led me towards a light that consisted of love, self-realization, strength, healing, and a clear and committed path for my future. I truly can’t imagine struggling through that difficult first year without her. Gentle guidance and her trust in my own insight, lifted me out of the fog of pain that I was in. Our spiritual practice was the weekly salve that gave me a sense of hope, peace, and a path forward. M. Miller
I have had the privilege and the pleasure of working with Melinda for the last six years, and look forward to the next twelve! Whether working on relationships, careers, health, or just the ordinary aspects of life, Melinda never fails to remind me of the spiritual in it. Like a good sponsor in a 12 step program, she actively listens to my words while also being aware of my emotions, thus steering me through the labyrinth of my feelings. And always, the gentle reminder of my spiritual nature - to live from my heart. Thank you, Melinda! You remind me that my problems are emotional and my solutions are spiritual -a true guidepost for living my life. Dave Wehner
