• Empowering Transformation

    WellWorth empowers heartful, optimal and transformational living focused on waking up to SoulShine. SoulShine is that feeling emanating from deep within that you’re right where you need to be, being just who you’re called to be - invigorated, victorious and appreciative, in wholeness, belonging and trusting divine flow.


    The WellWorth path starts from within, where your relationship with yourSelf comes first. It starts by bringing intentionality to the body and breath, focused on presence - then balancing belonging both within and without from Awareness. I, Maria Mellano and creator of WellWorth, call this the Basics of Being.


    The interest is in releasing the tendency to look outside oneself for causation, solution, blame or rescuing. It is also in understanding the role environment has played in who you are being; hence, we may understand influencing factors for your conditioning and patterns from which awakening is possible. This is a 'may it begin with me' approach where we embrace aligning with intuition, originality and alchemy in a values based, Self led life. It calls for waking up to Awareness and knowing ThySelf, on a deep, organic level.


    You can expect starting in the Now, knowing where you are - wherever that may be. We will clarify what got you here, what is draining and weighing on you, as well as what fulfills and inspires you. We will address your priorities drawing upon a rich repertoire of resources and apply unique experiential exercises for practice, deeper knowing and breakthroughs spontaneously. We will persevere through the vulnerability that naturally occurs with core, transformational work, while striving for holding heartful space and harmonizing into wholeness for lasting change.

  • Welcome!


    I’m Maria Mellano, creator of WellWorth, a seasoned wellness professional, psychotherapist, licensed clinical social worker, certified practitioner of psychodrama (a creative/expressive art), and a certified money, marketing and soul coach.


    I'm experienced with a variety of client populations, including a specialty in eating disorders and trauma. I have additional and extensive training and practice in group psychotherapy, internal family systems, dialectical behavioral therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy. My approach is foundationally attachment, experiential and spiritually based aligning systems and psychodynamics.


    I've been a professional in the human service and transformational field for over 20 years since getting my MSW at Smith College. Prior to that I was a fitness instructor, dancer, teacher, Buddhist practitioner (and, still am) and abuse/trauma and life threatening illness survivor. Most of all, I'm a soul in human form living my unique blueprint, just like you. I have a particular interest in helping the highly empathic lead lives of depth and impact by bringing well-being, worth and purpose into heartful alignment shining the soul.
