“Parents, you can’t keep pouring from an empty cup. You must get the support, tools, and space you need to stay in control of yourself and connected to your child.”


“Dr. Melody Aguayo has literally been a God-send to our family. Our daughter Sarah is 7 and has suffered from complex developmental trauma since her infancy. We welcomed Sarah into our family through the miracle of adoption when she was just 16 months old. Sarah struggles with rage, debilitating anxiety, multiple sensory processing issues as well as an attachment disorder. As a family we have taken great steps towards healing and recovery thanks to the investment of Dr. Aguayo. “Miss Melody,” as Sarah calls her, is brilliant and kind. She represents a wealth of research and clinical study but she puts the content on a down to earth level that anyone can access. Most importantly, Melody has always helped us see our daughter’s preciousness and has empowered us to be the parents we’ve always wanted to be. Sarah feels safe with Melody and we trust her advice implicitly…you will too.”

“Our family was really struggling when someone referred us to Dr. Aguayo. With 4 small adopted children with multiple special needs, we felt like we were drowning. We were weary of therapies, theories, labels and diagnosis and were desperate for practical, hands on ideas and tools for helping to bringing healing to our family. That is exactly what Dr. Aguayo offered. Her personal experience, her compassionate and gentle approach and her wisdom and training offered us the help and the hope that we so desperately needed.”
“If you ever have the opportunity to sit under Dr. Melody Aguayo’s teaching do it! You will learn about yourself and be better equipped to serve those around you. As a preschool teacher and grandmother what Dr. Aguayo taught about the brain and trauma helps me to be more compassionate. Having some more tools to use as needs arise and being aware of other resources is a blessing of the training. I hope you will take the time to learn and grow.”
