About the Director,
Melinda (Mindy) Scime, Ph.D.
Dr. Scime earned her Ph.D. in Counseling/School Psychology from the University at Buffalo. She is also a certified yoga instructor and founded Tree of Life Yoga Studio in October of 2008.
Early on in her graduate studies Mindy was drawn to studying the mind-body connection and its role in fostering healing, particularly for women. She studied prevention and treatment of eating disorders and how yoga might play a part in healing women struggling with body image issues and eating disorders. It was in graduate school that she first dreamed of opening a wellness center in her community, the City of Niagara Falls. Mindy envisioned a beautiful space that would welcome people in to seek relaxation, healing, and growth. Living Wellness of Niagara is the culmination of those dreams!
It is Mindy's hope that Living Wellness of Niagara will serve as a gathering place in our community where clients can come to nurture themselves. Currently, Living Wellness of Niagara is home to Mindy's practice as a psychologist, Tree of Life Yoga Studio, and the practices of Tomasina Cook, LMHC and Gloria White, PNP. We also partner with a variety of health and wellness professionals to offer unique workshops and retreats, for more information on current offerings check our events page.
