I talk to parents every week who desperately want more peace in their home but are going about it all wrong.
That's why I created The Regulation Rescue!

Access to the Safe and Sound Protocol so your entire family can increase their windows of tolerance and be less reactive.

Guidance on how to use essential oils safely to protect your brain from the effects of stress hormones and create an anchor so you can access regulation in an instant wherever you are.


Learn the REAL Life Behavior Plan System™ so you can figure out the best way to respond to your child's challenging behaviors so they can grow but also trust you at the same time.


Group coaching and individualized support so you get the maximum transformation and know you are not alone.

I completed the Safe and Sound Protocol, and it was about a month or more later that I suddenly noticed I wasn't anxious anymore and it didn't take as much effort to respond well.  
I didn't feel as triggered.

Adoptive Mom

What Other Parents Are Saying

I reached out to Melissa when one of our children started displaying scary behaviors that were outside of the tools we had. I had run out of ideas and felt like I was failing. Once we started using the REAL Life Behavior Plan System, I could feel the bitterness slipping away, and I started enjoying my child. The behaviors haven't completely gone away, but I don't live in fear anymore. I feel in control of myself and confident about my parenting. The transformation is like night and day. Thanks to Melissa, we feel like we have our family back again."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Safe and Sound Protocol?
Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a multi-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. Based on Dr. Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, by calming the physiological and emotional state, the door is opened for improved communication and more success with other therapy modalities.

Why is aromatherapy important for this intensive?
Your sense of smell is the only one of your basic five senses that bypasses the cognitive or thinking brain and directly impacts the limbic system, the part of our brain where emotions and memories are stored. By anchoring an essential oil to your Safe and Sound experience, you can use that essential oil to trigger a desired regulation state.
