Melissa Morgan Tang, CPCC, ACC Co-Active Coach, Group Facilitator

I work with adults and seniors who are learning to bring balance into their lives despite stressful circumstances, depression, anxiety and adverse behavior patterns.  My style is a combination of Peer Support and Life Coaching.  The Peer Support is about relating to and deep understanding of, which creates normalcy and leads to esteem.  Life Coaching gives me an edge in empowering folks. Coaching allows people to access ingenuity and solutions for solving frustrations on their own.  Together we connect with their true emotions and work from their core of strength to achieve higher potentiality.”

Rachel Katz, M.A., M.Ed

Rachel Katz of The Urban Spirit: Down-to-earth path-finding for the inquisitive spirit

rach bodhi eyeing cameraMy diverse skills and interests allow me to work in a variety of roles and capacities, including spiritual direction, qualitative research, working with death and loss, writing, the human-animal bond. Whether it’s exploring their spiritual journey, or coping with death and illness, or healing from pet loss, the thread that runs through all of my work is my passion for supporting others in their growth and healing. It’s not only about grief; it’s also about joy and laughter.

I am a spiritual guide who helps passionate, curious women explore the big questions and live a life of intention. With a background in counseling psychology and spiritual guidance, I offer compassionate and focused reflection in every session and in daily life.

The Urban Spirit may be for you if:

  • You’re curious about how to connect with the sacred in your life
  • You consider yourself “spiritual but not religious,” agnostic, atheist, spiritually eclectic or feel you don’t identify with any particular category
  • You yearn for something less prescriptive, fresher, and more creative than traditional psychotherapy or self-help books
  • You would like to abandon or make peace with a religion you were raised with, or explore ways of complementing your childhood faith with spiritual ideas and practices that speak to you now
