How can you offer a workplace culture to strengthen employee mental health? 

Embeing's® Trauma-Responsive Systems Analysis recognizes: 

  • Anxiety, depression and mental health concerns are impacting the world of work.

  • There are often unwitting practices that limit human potential, productivity, health and satisfaction.

  • Community, connection and belonging are primary factors in mental wellness. 

Embeing® founder Melanie Lynn Brown holds an undergraduate degree in Government from Smith. While earning her MA Ed. in Mindful Education and Trauma Studies she spent 4 years studying how systems serve and dis-serve youth, which culminated in a project on Embodying Compassion in Professional Practice. Toxic societal happenings impact employee wellness. How can you best create connection and community in your workplace to strengthen employee physical and mental health? The Embeing® narrative model will offer recommendations regarding your organizational function and culture from a human-centric, trauma-responsive perspective in the form of a comprehensive report, outlining the actions necessary to optimize employee and work culture wellness. 

Personal Consultation

Melanie holds an MA Ed. in Mindful Education and Trauma Studies and works with clients one-to-one through an empowered approach.  


Clients leave with digestable understandings of the social, biological and psychic patterns of trauma that they can then integrate into their daily lives. Trauma causes distress "bottom-up" and "top-down". Clients leave with the somatic tools for supporting nervous system regulation that enable them to address anxiety without medication and deep knowledge of how emotions create physical disease. Melanie has a 30 year history of advocating for whole-body wellness, with specific attention to how nutrition and movement activities effect mental health. A certified yoga teacher, her client roster prioritizes those who want to address how past psychological trauma is impacting barriers to physical wellness in the present. 


This is not traditional talk therapy, but can be used in addition as a short term support while working with a traditionally trained clinician. Less than 20 percent of college programs for clinicians/therapists even offer a single elective in trauma. Melanie has also helped many people explore how to find the right long-term traditionally trained clinician to further attend to their unique needs.
