Once upon a time...

There was a sleep-deprived new mum that had a vision of building a better world where women and children would feel supported, nurtured and valued.

That vision started with a brick and mortar occupational therapy practice, integrating both prenatal/postnatal and pediatric therapy. It evolved into an online course and eventually, into a membership community for like-minded practitioners.

Who is Melissa LaPointe?

I'm the creator and chief visionary for the Strong Beginnings Community. I'm many things, including an OT, a consultant, a business strategist and a mindset coach.

I'm also an online entrepreneur, having spent the last 4 years growing my online consulting business with a focus on women's health, professional growth and education.

After starting my own brick & mortar therapy practice in 2013, I found myself swimming in resources but lacking in terms of direction. I was also constantly dealing with the fear of missing out. It was overwhelming and I spent a lot of time and energy chasing shiny objects while often feeling very alone on this journey.  

Starting in 2017, I made a massive shift in my business to focus on a big gap that I saw missing from the marketplace: mindset coaching and strategic planning that's specific to women's health therapists wanting to think outside the box in growing their practice, professionals that are so often juggling demands both at work and at home.

It’s now my personal mission to create a safe and supportive space for personal growth and development, empowering women’s health therapists to grow as entrepreneurs through strategic alliances, community and connection. 

I'm thrilled that you're interested in joining me on this mission. It takes a courageous person to think outside the box and demand for things to be done differently. And I truly believe that together, we can move mountains!
