“Dr. Bird has a no nonsense approach to coaching that is the most amazing blend of best friend and sisterhood combined.  She’s in this to help me make progress and take action.  Big on the take action.  She is highly motivating and takes the time to listen to where I’m at while giving me tools to peel back that next layer of onion.  Missy sees me for who I am as a person and holds that space in a powerful way for me to continue to step into.  Simply put, she is the most refreshing and honest coach I have ever worked with in over a decade of this growth journey.  I cannot recommend her enough.”

Are you interested in working with me? Here’s how to get started.

Step 1. Schedule a complimentary, no-obligation consult. You can do that right here.

Step 2. Watch your email for questions from me. Before we hop on the phone, I’d like to know a bit about you and what you’d like to get out of coaching with me.

Step 3. Hit “reply” to that email and answer the questions.

Step 4. At the scheduled time of your consult, we’ll consult! We’ll use the opportunity to make sure we’re the perfect fit before you commit.

Step 5. Then we’ll get started! If you decide to work with me, I’ll tell you the exact steps for getting started. If you decide not to work with me or if we aren’t a perfect fit, I’m happy to share other resources to help you get what you need.

This is not the time for playing it safe. This is the time to pull out the big guns in our lives and in our politics. Advocacy is not just about changing your community, it is also about changing your own life.

When you engage in coaching with Dr. Melissa Bird you learn how to incorporate your social justice juju into your every day living.

Coaching has helped my clients:
1. Become clear in their advocacy goals
2. Improve their writing
3. Tap into their fierceness and passion and find their voice
4. Focus on using their creativity to change their communities
5. Build a strong feminist foundation in their lives

“The past eight years of my life have been filled with hopeless moments and collisions with fear.  My emotional state was desperate, empty and struggling.  She helped to me see what I should be striving for and hope for what she knew could be mine when I was ready to try.  Not only did she help me, she pulled my life into a place of hope, triumphant moments and strength.  She enabled me to let go of all the “what if” and “I can’t” responses that had become triggered by daily life.  She made me see the positive in my future and how I, and I alone, controlled my destiny as well as where my decisions would lead me.  She allowed me to realize that I am a strong sassy woman who can achieve anything I choose to.”
