What Our Students Have Said

Personalized Strategies

I loved reading through this course and learning about new ways to look at doubt. I’m excited to try the personalized strategies I learned to manage the doubt and how I can also make it with for me.

New Perspective

Delete the Doubt offers a new approach and perspective for people who struggle with doubt in their creative pursuits that is refreshing.

Transforms Doubt

Melissa guides writers through a process that transforms paralyzing self doubt into productive creative doubt.


I loved the character strengths test and the info about how to use them. I also really love the idea of letting go of the ones I think I should be using but aren’t actually my strengths! Very liberating.


Melissa's personality and approach to coaching embodies the "sunlight of the spirit." She has a strengths-based and positive framework in which she listens, ask perceptive and thought-provoking questions, and gets clients clear on their issues so they can quickly and dynamically move toward solutions.

  • How much time does the course take?

    The course runs for four weeks. Each week, you'll get two modules to work through. Depending on how in-depth you want to go, you could spend an hour to a few hours each week. You'll have continued access to the course after the four weeks as well, in case you need to catch up or want to revisit any topics.

  • How is Delete the Doubt Plus different from the basic Delete the Doubt?

    In Delete the Doubt Plus, you'll get personalized feedback and suggestions in the group coaching calls, discussions, and some activities. You'll also be working through the course with other writers so you can learn from their experiences as well. In the basic version, you are only getting course access with no interaction with others or personalized feedback.

  • Will the course help me in other areas of my life beyond writing?

    That's the goal! I use these strategies in my writing, my business, and in other areas of my life. While the discussions and text will be based around writing, you can easily use them for other areas of doubt as well.

  • What if I don't like the course?

    You can try out the course using the free preview version. If you're not sure if this course is right for you, that's a great first step. You can also email me with any questions you have.

  • What if I fall behind?

    You'll have continued access to all course materials after the course has ended. We encourage students to invest in themselves by setting aside time each week for this month. There may be special circumstances in which you would be eligible to re-take the course with another cohort, but these are very limited.
