Collection of Testimonials from Around the Web

We have tried to snag testimonials we find about us around the internet and collect them all here for your convenience.

In addition, we have added testimonials received via email directly to us. We often work with people on issues that are very personal.  Thus, there may be some testimonials where no part of the name is revealed or only a portion of the testimonial is made public on the web – perhaps due to the sensitivity of the work or the public image of the individual.  We do this in order to honor the privacy of all those who receive care from us.

However, we encourage you to do your own research to decide if reaching out to us might be right for you..

It is in the state of rest that change occurs.

I have seen both Catherine and Mel for sessions and would highly recommend each of them to anyone seeking healing and intuitive guidance. Their unique styles compliment each other wonderfully, providing a lovely yin and yang feel to their practice. I love the space they’ve created for healing and it’s clear they’ve put a tremendous amount of thought and love into the space.

What I love about Catherine – Catherine does an amazing job at helping you understand the process and making you feel comfortable before [their] readings even start. [They] provide very caring, straight forward guidance in [their] readings in a way that’s clear and easy for you to understand. I found [their] guidance to be extremely helpful and in line with what I knew to be true. [They] are a very talented, loving healer. I thoroughly enjoy and have benefited from my readings with [them]. I would recommend [them] to anyone needing help and guidance in their life.

What I love about Mel – Mel does a fantastic job taking time before his session starts to understand the problems you are experiencing and the changes you want to enact in your life. His calm energy and demeanor made me feel relaxed before the session even started. Mel is a very knowledgeable and caring healer who is extremely gifted in energy work. I felt so relaxed and at peace after my session with Mel. Mel has helped me to understand aspects of myself more clearly and release energy blocks so I can attain the life I desire. I would recommend him to anyone in need of change and harmony in their life.

Mel & Catherine are suburb! Besides being excellent psychics and healers, they are working with chakra measurement technology that shows results. If you are looking for a healing or a reading these are the two to see.

I had my first reading EVER with both Catherine and Mel. It was amazing. How they incorporate their different methods of reading made for an amazing, multifaceted experience. We tapped into my deeper levels of consciousnesses and how I am able to reach those (dreams that aren’t really dreams in a way). It’s almost impossible to explain! By the end, there were presences felt from my most cherished Grandmother. Out of nowhere Mel was describing details he couldn’t possibly know about my old room at her house. Seriously, just amazing. I’m so looking forward to going back.

Both Mel and Catherine are amazing! I did a psychic session with Catherine and [they] was able to tell me the exact health issues I am going through and was able to tap into what is around the corner healthwise if I don’t fully address these issues. While talking about financial issues, [they] were able to go into specific details about a huge drama i am going through with a family member and was able to explain to me that person’s perspective and their view towards the drama, which led to on the spot closure of that issue for me…truly amazing!
I went to the Meet your Guides and Angels class with Mel, and definitely discovered who is always around me, protecting me…Bob! I just signed up for the next class on Past Life Regression, it is truly fascinating information.  I will be seeing Mel for a healing session soon. I cannot recommend these two enough! If you have specific questions and issues or if you don’t even know what you are searching for, they can guide you and point you in the right direction and give you tools along the way. Check them out, you won’t be sorry! Also a great and awesome gift idea!

I recently attended Mel’s Angels and Guides class – it was a really great experience and I learned a lot!  The class started with an individual chakra reading and analysis.  Mel taught us about vibrational energy and what each chakra represents. Mel took us through a guided meditation where each of us were able to communicate (in one way or another) with our guides – it was really exciting!

I had previously had a reading with Catherine that was honestly life-changing.  [They] knew so many details [they] shouldn’t have known.  It was an incredibly validating and clarifying experience.  I can’t wait to do it again!

Mel and Catherine are two of the best healers and mediums I have worked with. They are very warm and inviting, and make you feel right at home. These are two are very talented professionals that will help you get the answers you’re looking for or the help you seek. Very highly recommended.

Mel and Catherine are amazing!!! I took Mel’s angels and guides class last night. He did a chakra scan and we were given a print out of how our chakras are aligned and what that means. There were about 8 people in class and we sat on Japanese mats and chairs on the ground (which I loved!) We did a meditation with blank sheets of paper and had our guides communicate through!! It was so cool to see how different the designs were on my paper when I had felt different energies come in. I would definitely take another class and will be scheduling a reading/ healing soon!

Mel is extremely knowledgeable with a great setup. His calm demeanor and great intelligence and experience all led to a wonderful experience. I am already reaping the health benefits from my two visits with him, at a time when my health condition is tenuous at best. I feel confident that my continued interactions with him will lead to great health (both mental and physical) for the rest of my life! Why wouldn’t you try an appointment with him? If you have some chronic health or mental or emotional condition, please consider making an appointment with him. I believe that you will not be disappointed!

Mel has a lot of knowledge about our energy and how it affects us on all levels. He showed me that I am dominant in my physical energy field and how that affects my thinking, how I interact with others and how I am able to affect my physical health through my emotional and mental states.

He gave me a session during our evaluation meeting. We took scans of my fingertips to see how my energy fields were affecting my organs both before and after the session. It was amazing to see the difference! I’m so glad I found Mel and am now on a journey to optimal health!

I was introduced to Mel by my trainer. I have been running marathons since my twenties (50’s now) and my last race was horrible. I had the worst finish time of my career and was in the most pain after. Granted, I consider myself to be in pretty good health but I have to admit that I am getting older so there is joint pain and fatigue. On top of that, it is taking me longer to recover from my runs.

I saw Mel to see if hypnotherapy would help me get one more race in at a decent finish time so that I could at least say that I ended my marathon days on a high note. Well, I have been seeing him for 4 months now. We have been working on my circulation and so far, my bench marks are as good as they were in my prime. My runs are more enjoyable, I recover faster, and there is definitely a lot less joint pain and fatigue overall. I even get better sleep at night. I can’t wait to see how I finish my next race. I might even try to break my best time. I’m sending all my friends to see you, Mel!

Mel shows great care and patience as well as understanding of his profession. He is very skilled and helped me to overcome many issues and problems.

They say give a man a fish and you feed him for a day and teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. This saying explains Mel and what he has given me and my family perfectly.

He is kind, patient, and helped my life in every way imaginable. He has helped to give me hope, confidence, and tools to make my life and more importantly the life of my family better. The world is a better place and no words can repay what I have been given and I plan to do my best to bring the same hope to others

I don’t know how else to say this but I feel like I literally owe Mel my life! I was assaulted 11 years ago and later diagnosed with PTSD. Long story short years of therapy and medication and a struggling marriage left me feeling hopeless.

When I found Mel, I didn’t really know what I was looking for except to stop feeling the way I was feeling and save my marriage. Me and my husband are 5 months into his 6-month program and it has truly been a transformation! Its not perfect and I know we have more work to do but I feel like we have had more healing in these last months than in the past 10 years and am so grateful to have found him.

Working with Mel at 460s Journal has been a life saver for me. I’ve felt lost all my life with answered questions and seeking my purpose. That all changed when I started doing hypnotherapy with Mel and tapping into my subconscious. I’ve learned so much in the few weeks that we have worked together and I’ve already experienced major changes (mood, control of my emotions, feeling centered etc.). I highly recommend 460s Journal for anyone who wants to tap into their authentic self and dig deep into their subconscious. Thank you Mel and see you Monday for our weekly sessions! 🙂

One of the most kind and patient people I’ve spoken to especially in regards to energy. He did not act like some mystical fortuneteller. The conversation was very personable I felt extremely comfortable going into detail about aspects of my life that I felt I needed inside to. And even if things went a little bit off topic he still helped me understand those situations and how they relate to what we were originally conversing about. The willingness to give you clarity is unmatched thus far. I’m very grateful for his willingness to speak with me while he was out of the office and was in between clients. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience and I look forward to speaking with you sometime soon in the future. Love and blessings to what you guys are doing and anyone who may read this review. WARNING: An Extremely insightful conversation will occur if you choose to engage. Proceed with consciousness.

Had an amazing Reike session with Mel on January 10, 2018. I love his leading edge technique. Meaning, he is not using antiquated methodology. I am very much aligned with his technique to use and power up the heart and activate healing from there. The session was very much needed and so powerful that I fell asleep. I felt very rested afterwards, at the same time buzzing with renewed energy.

Thanks so much, Mel. You are amazing!!!

Mel is great! I live in Iowa and Mel was able to do sessions with my via video chat. I came to him with digestion issues and severe bloating as well as anxiety problems. Mel helped me figure out how to use meditation to control my chakras and heal my intestines. Before my bloating was at an 8 average everyday(on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst), and at the end of three months working with Mel my bloating had gone down to a 2-3 average everyday. Not only that, but my anxiety was significantly better after meditating everyday. He was always available if I had any questions or needed help, and his main goal was to teach me how to understand my own body. I strongly recommend working with Mel. It definitely improved my mind and body.

Working with Mel at 460’s Journal has changed my life for the better. I went to see Mel because I was at a turning point in my life where I felt lost and simply unbalanced. Mel was supportive, warm, and truly caring to my needs and goals. I wanted to get in touch with my authentic self and find out who I really am, what’s my purpose and so forth. After only had 4 sessions so far I’ve seen a MAJOR improvement! I’m more emotionally balanced (no panic attacks, anxiety etc.), zen-like and embracing ME! I’m so thankful for Mel and I can’t recommend him enough to others who are seeking the truth within themselves! Tapping into my subconscious was scary at first but now I’m learning to embrace and I’m excited to see the growth in me. Forever thankful!

I have experienced some major life changes in the last 4 years, some planned and some unplanned. I found myself struggling with insecurity in a few important areas in my life which I had felt secure in before, and wanted help regaining confidence in them. I was nervous to give something new to me and unconventional a try but was put at ease right away by Mel and the comfortable space. Mel helped me gain insight into these new and escalating feelings that were contributing to anxiety by helping me understand how I relate to people and process information by explaining the various energy bodies. Even after the first session, I was able to understand better where these insecurities were coming from and took away some actions I could put into practice in my daily life to rebuild confidence in these areas. I am very happy with the results of my sessions as the insight Mel gave has not only helped me overcome a road block I needed to achieve peace and results in an important area to me now but I know I’ll be able to use it to work thru future times of insecurity. I highly recommend 460’s Journal!

Catherine is a truly talented, kind, respectful and loving person and [their] reading was life-changing for me. Catherine goes out of [their] way to make sure you understand everything about the process and that you are comfortable before [they] begin the reading. The reading itself was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve had. As [they] were sharing messages for me I could feel in my entire body that they were truths.

I had an amazing reading by Catherine. It was my first psychic reading ever and I didn’t know what to expect. [They] were able to delve into issues I was having with decisions I’ve been wanting to make and it gave me clarity on my options and time frame and learning to be patient. Catherine has a wonderful energy and is a joy to spend time with in general, but as an intuitive, [they] really delve into the spiritual realm in a fascinating way that is fun, and made me feel more connected to my guides. What was really great is that my dad and grandma came through and I learned more about how they have already been communicating with me and how to stay connected with them. And I got some encouraging messages! I would highly recommend getting a session with Catherine! Can’t wait to do it again.

Had a wonderful session with Catherine a few days back that blew my mind! [They] were super accurate and made sure you understood [their] process as a psychic. One thing I liked was [their] authenticity. [They] made sure to tell you to not to give [them] information about any situation because then [they’ll] have a biased answer (or know the answer basically). Instead, I was able to give ask [them] vague questions and [they] knew exactly what I was talking about. Extremely impressed and highly recommend anyone to see Catherine! Thank you so much and I’m forever grateful!

I don’t know where to begin. My very first reading was at Pride this year. I have always been interested but never really made it a priority to get in for one. I have seriously been missing out. Catherine was able to connect with me on a level that I don’t think I will ever be able to explain. [They] were able to communicate thoughts that I have been having, that I have never shared with anyone or even written down. [They] have such a warm and inviting energy, and made it an extremely comfortable experience. I can’t wait for my next reading!

Tess is not only well experienced in her professional accounting field, but also she is warm, sensitive and has a deep understanding in people’s emotions, minds and energy healing. When I spoke with Tess, I was feeling overwhelmed, stressed and had a cold with lots of coughs.  She helped me realize how my body, mind and business were connected. As we talked, she guided me to be in touch with my deeper emotion and longings and also to helped me to have a thriving mindset. After talking with Tess, I felt more confident to take actions and move forward to my goal to help thousands of Japanese business owners to grow their businesses without worrying how people think about me. I love my business and life even more. Thanks so much!

Ok… gratitude report:
Just had one of the most productive, effective and powerful sessions with my coach from Pivot Wealth Strategies that I’ve ever had in any program I’ve attended. I’ve known and watched a pattern of failure in my life over and over where I would search out a solution to gain control over some area, (in this case, finances), and I would pour everything into mastering the solution. But after learning as much as I could in as short a time as possible, I would inevitably encounter an obstacle I had not learned about or figured out and then I would lose interest and walk away to seek out another solution of some sort.
Tonight while working with Tess Vergara, she took me through a very short exercise in emotional mastery that has unlocked a HUGE shift in my internal dialog. While doing the homework afterward, I discovered the roots of my failure pattern, identified how to shift focus by activating some of my other dormant beliefs to change my internal dialog and voila… instead of lost focus, I am now totally jazzed about tearing apart the obstacles and attacking the future that I wanted in the first place!  New Peaks… THANK YOU for connecting me with Tess!!!!  She totally rocks!!!!

I’m a chef at local brewery. I have been in a family crisis for the last 3 decades. I’m no longer in such crisis anymore.
One of the major shifts I have had since doing the home work with you is new opportunities have opened up with my current employer. I have created more dollars in an enjoyable way.  I have met someone who is nurturing a part of my soul that for me is, the battered dreamer. He is soothing that aspect of myself. The physical representation of the healing of my heart has been physically actualized.
These classes you offer are potent. I plan on being in your tribe for a very long time.

Therapists need therapists and coaches need coaches.
The other day I spoke with Tess Vergara for a personal coach session via Skype. She has a unique way of helping a person find the source of hang-ups or thinking patterns that may be limiting your life experience.
If you’ve never experienced coaching, it is different from conventional therapy because it’s not focused on listening to you yammering to finally put a label on you. Coaching is about helping you come to realize the answers you seek more on your own via asking the right questions to get to logical and reasonable conclusions and solutions and/or just give a person that nudge or push over a wall to achieve the breakthrough that a person needs that may have been holding us back from a desire or need.
Tess’s style is unique. I recommend her if you want to try a life coach.
Thanks, Tess!

I was on a big crossroads of my life. A part me was pulling forward towards all the big dreams I have. But another part held me back. There were times when all I could do was just sit silently for an hour, lost, confused, frustrated, while this inner conflict was happening inside me.
I am a life coach but even as a coach, I have my own blind spot. That’s why it’s a blind spot because no matter how deep I dig, it seemed I couldn’t see what’s going on. I needed help. As I reached out, Tess was there throwing a life vest at me. She pulled me up. She came without judgement. She was there as a a mirror of what’s going on inside me.
I was able to make peace with the shattered pieces of me. I had some areas that needed help before my wife passed away. And during the moment of her passing, these unresolved issues took to overdrive and my frustration turned these matters into emotional shells.
Tess showed me how to get these shells.  We didn’t stop there. We continued to the place where I had to decide what I was going to do next. Did I want to stay where I was and feeling sorry for myself
