A San Francisco-based psychotherapist and leadership coach, Yael Melamed’s work is influenced by her own experience of having cancer, which prompted her to re-examine her life and leave a 10-year career in business to pursue her calling. She holds advanced degrees from Harvard Business School and the California Institute of Integral Studies, and is greatly informed by her spiritual path. Yael believes that life’s biggest challenges can become blessings, if you choose to grow from them, and she is passionate about creating a world with less suffering and more actualized potential. Outside of clinical work, Yael is a writer, speaker, and mother to a firecracker of a daughter.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
