About Me & My Practice

I’m Melissa Josue and I help clients overcome relationship challenges and create a deeply fulfilling life and relationship.

My specialty is helping clients navigate the unique challenges of dating men who are in the process of divorce or dating men who have been previously married (with or without kids).

I’m also a certified dating and relationship coach and I specialize in working with women who are struggling to decide whether the relationship that they’re in is right for them, or who are engaged to a divorced dad and are struggling with the pressure of becoming an “instant stepmom.”

When I was dating a divorced man (and the relationship was getting more serious), I was facing unique challenges that I didn’t know how to address.

How should I be with his kids? What do I say when I meet his ex? What about when I meet his extended family?

Am I ready to commit to this relationship and become a stepmom? What would it mean for me and my life?

The dating and relationship advice online wasn’t very helpful–for my situation anyway.

There were very few resources out there that spoke to the specific experiences or challenges that I was going through as a woman in a pre-committed (dating but exclusive) relationship with a divorced dad.

And even the advice I found on relationship forums from other women who have been on this journey was extremely varied at best (and vindictive at worst).

Many articles on the internet make broad generalizations about why you should or shouldn’t date a divorced man. But, as you’ve probably experienced, there are lots of gray areas. And often times, reading a book or article can leave us with even more questions than before we started reading the book!

I support clients with a listening ear and offer personalized guidance and coaching on overcoming challenges or making important relationship decisions when you feel stuck.

I focus on helping clients become highly conscious of the choices that they make in their relationships. What I mean by “conscious” is being highly aware and going into our relationships with our eyes wide open.

Consciousness simply means awareness...and the more awareness that we have about our stuff, our man’s stuff, and whether our stuff will work out together...the better odds we give ourselves in this gamble called dating and relationships.

Making more conscious choices in our relationships leads to a life (and a partnership!) that is more aligned with what we truly want!

If we are suffering in our relationships, our whole life can feel off balance, especially when it comes to the relationships that are most near and dear to our hearts.

If we are suffering in our relationships, our whole life can feel off balance, especially when it comes to the relationships that are most near and dear to our hearts.

The good news is struggle and suffering is optional.

And I know from experience — being the stepmom of two teenage girls and a wife to an awesome man who makes it all worth it — that having a happy, fulfilling partnership is possible.

I Believe

- We are the powerful creators of our own experience
- We can choose the relationships that we want
- Relationship and communication skills can be learned
- We are all worthy of love and respect just the way that we are; we don’t have to prove our worthiness
- The most valuable answers to our problems come from our own wisdom within
- We can learn how to hear and trust our own wisdom
- Everything happens for a reason; each relationship is a gift, if even in disguise
- Our past doesn’t matter so much as how we choose to move forward
- We always have choices, even when we think that we don’t

To your relationship fulfillment,
Melissa
