Bring your life into balance

Empathy works. It always does.


“I learned the most from you.  Your clarity of mind, zest, compassion and ability to accurately reflect back made me feel safe and seen.” Monika Walasek, Ontario, April 2017

“I have been stunned by the work Elly and I have done. Elly has a gift that is precious and rare. She listens with a heart that is open, clear, vulnerable, quiet and exquisitely powerful. She captures the essence of what she hears in a profound and touching way. I do not know how to describe my work with Elly. It is magnificent and I cannot imagine my life without our time together now. It is like air I breathe.” Jen, Austin, April 2014

What is coaching?

Coaching is a creative partnership designed to help you discover and embody the best version of yourself. We work together to use the fullness of your experience to connect to your needs. We explore your obstacles for self-agency. And we build support, assignments and exercises to incorporate your learning in daily life. Coaching empowers you to make decisions and take actions in alignment with your values and aspirations.

Benefits of coaching

  • Deeper sense of purpose and contribution
  • Fulfilling relationships, with yourself and others
  • Lifting your life from a seven to a nine
  • More self-acceptance and self-compassion

Coaching Package: my pricing will change November 1, 2017

Elly is currently in the process of ICF-certification with MentorCoach. As part of her certification process, she’s working toward completing 100 coaching hours. To reach that goal she offers a coaching package:

  • Eight, weekly one-hour sessions
  • Unlimited email support in between sessions
  • $600 for the whole package
  • Any client who signs up for coaching at the old price (eight sessions for $600) will stay grandfathered in to this pricing. Absolutely nothing changes for them. Anyone who signs up after November 1, will pay $800 for eight sessions.

Schedule your discovery session to see how working with me can help you maintain balance in your life.
