About Me

Hello, I am Dr. Sree Meleth

Dr. Sree Meleth was raised in a Hindu Nair family by a devout father and an agnostic mother. She was working her way through the typical teenage angst of trying to decide whether she believed in God or not when she lost her mother in a plane crash at the age of 19. With her mother, Sree lost her sense of home, her single steadfast source of emotional support, and her trust in life. A few months later, still bruised, shocked, and very tired of the back and forth in her mind about whether or not to believe in a God, Sree decided to try living as if she were a believer. Today, some 42 years later, that tentative step towards faith has blossomed into a steadfast knowing and unshakable connection.

That faith has stood her in good stead. Since that devastating night, on Dec 31st, 1977, when she lost her Mom, Sree has experienced life in all of its messy glory, from the devastation of loved ones committing suicide and falling prey to addictions to losing a child.

While moving across three continents and living in over 30 different homes, as her physician husband worked through post-graduate training, Sree not only raised two wonderfully successful children, she earned three Master’s degrees and a doctoral degree.

"Despite external evidence of their competence, those exhibiting the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved."
That is the definition of "The Imposter Syndrome."

Sree is the poster child for the Imposter Syndrome. Despite all of these achievements, she often falls into the trap of worrying that she is not good enough, comparing herself to her peers, dismissing her accomplishments as a fluke, and spiraling into a dark hole of inaction or, more often, ineffective action. She knows how devastating and stunting this constant questioning is. That is why she created Freeing Ourselves.

She believes from the bottom of her heart that her purpose in life is to help her clients drop these questions of value and worth and stand tall in the knowledge that they are invaluable human beings.  As the testimonials show, she is amazingly successful in achieving this.

Her lived experience has made Sree an amazingly gentle and supportive person who can hold the space as her clients to work through their distress and come out on the other side, with a calm, powerful belief in themselves.
