Dr. Melba Stetz was born on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. “Melbita” (little Melba) would have “imaginary friends” and could not stay still. ” Raised in a Hispanic Catholic neighborhood, she was labeled as “too sensitive”, having a “vivid imagination”, and later on: “ADHD-er”. Her parents wanted her to take over their medical clinic.
She finished High School ahead of her peers. However, one day, she dropped out of pre-medical school and enlisted in the U.S. ARMY. After a few “growing experiences” (e.g., racism, sexism, ageism, “Me too!”), she went back home. Soon enough, she finished her three Psychology degrees, two licenses, and became a U.S. ARMY Research Psychologist.
30 years later and a few deployments, Lieutenant Colonel Stetz retired with her family in Hawaii.
One day she got cancer (as her mother and sister). She had multiple surgeries, chemotherapies, radiations, and medications to stay alive. Cancer had already taken her mom and Hurricane María her father. After her breasts' amputation she also had to remove her small implants, as kept getting her sicker.
As a High-Risk family, she could not go out during COVID so she continued her post-doctorate education in complementary healing as energy, spirituality, etc. When her father-in-law: Norm (RIP), died from COVID, she did not look back.
Melba has trained/still training (always a student) with awesome tutors in the US, Canada, and the UK (e.g., Thomas John, Tony Stockwell, Martin Twycross, Chris Page). Some of her training certificates are below.
Dr. Melba has also published extensively on stress and coping. She recently became a best co-author on peak performance. She just finished a chapter on surviving suicide ideations and is working on her Motivating Memoir.
She is a Psychology Professor, a Motivational Speaker, a Neurofeedback and Biofeedback Therapist, and an Intuitive (spiritual) Coach. You may also find her giving motivational talks in both English and Spanish. Her contact info is below:
