Melanie Brown is a licensed therapist who has been working with families, couples, and youth for 10+ years! Her goal as a therapist is to support her clients in releasing old unresolved pain in the middle of your relationship, bringing it back to a place that is warm and wonderful: she calls this Divorce Prevention Therapy. Through her work with youth she has found that when young people can find their own sense of self -worth, their desire to achieve, improve, and build close family relationships grows exponentially. When they understand their great value, it helps them weather the storms of relationship struggles, overcome the negative influence of others, and rise to the their highest potential!

Recently, Melanie was crowned Ms. Female Entrepreneur of Utah, and she is excited to continue sharing her message about youth suicide prevention, in this role.


Why can Melanie help you?

Melanie understands, on a personal level, this life changing--only a mother can understand--level of grief.

David will always be 29... What does a mother tell you about a son lost?  How do I help you understand David? 
He was the most loving young man I have ever met. 

He is gone, his goofy laugh, his silly smile, his curly hair, his love for everyone around him. 

When I left David that weekend to house sit he seemed okay. I had no idea what I would come home to that Monday night...


I came home that Monday night, hurrying in and out of the house .. annoyed that David didn't get up and come help.  Then I went in and touched his body to wake him... and he was so cold.  


...All I know is I want him back. I want to hold him and touch him and buy him Mountain Dew .. and even cigarettes. I hated that he smoked but now it doesn't matter... I even wish I could buy him cigarettes!  You see what I thought mattered so much didn't...   doesn't... because all that matters is loving David.

“ I have felt for a very long time that those who find me, that come to work with me, are intended for me to work with them, because I have the tools and skills and understanding to help you deal with the struggles and problems that you are experiencing in your life right now...”
— Melanie Brown, Owner, Healing Hearts & HOmes

This is the perfect space to form friendships with other women who know exactly how you feel. They share their stories and experiences for growing through grief and will strengthen and support you as you take the time to fall apart and heal.

Join us in a luxury mountainside home near the Little Cottonwood Canyons of Utah for your healing retreat! You will enjoy panoramic views off a large two-level deck, movie theater, recreation room, and two comfortable family rooms with fireplaces and flatscreen TVs.

I am ready for my retreat!

We hear you...

Grief for a mother is different than any other grief. During your healing retreat, you can honor your child and the love you hold for your child. We understand that they will always be a part of you! You will have a safe place to share your child with us. 

We want to honor their life! You deserve the time to heal, a sanctuary, a safe and sacred place of healing! Let's laugh and cry together! 

A Note from Melanie:

I want the mothers, each of you, to leave the retreat knowing you are not alone, that other women share your grief and understand. That your child's life mattered and you will always have their life to remember and carry them with you. I want you to feel that your pain is a bit lighter... that you can go on. And lastly, that you have healed from some of the heaviness of this deep grief.
