what I do
What I do depends on who I work with. Most times I work one-on-one or with couples. For groups, I lead workshops or give keynote talks.
Some of the more popular topics I work on with people include:
- Relationships – couples, family, co-workers
- Career – advancement, transition, development
- Wellness – balance, health, weight, fitness, meditation
- Abundance – feeling plentiful and having more
- Metaphysical/spirituality – intuition, energy, new age thought, quantum physics
- Goals – setting and achieving them, staying the course, evaluating progress
- Learning to coach others – coaching for use at work, home or as a career

Here are some experiences with coaching:
What do you love about life coaching?
“Life coaching unblocks the “sticking points” that keep me from achieving the things I want. It gives me objective insights into my habits and behavior, reminds me to consult my higher self, helps me to recognize what’s most important and the actionable steps to achieving it, and restores my faith in my ability to shape and improve my own life experience.”
“I love life coaching because of the progressive nature of my sessions. When I began, I felt as though I was stuck. I had done what I knew to do to no avail. The coaching had me see things in a different way.”
Why have you consulted a life coach?
“I tend to feel overwhelmed and stressed by my responsibilities, and worry often about silly things even though my life is wonderful in every way. I want to learn how I can stop “getting in my own way.” Lastly, I want to unburden myself from my life-long belief that I must constantly help others to have worth and instead start seeking joy for its own sake.”
“During a time when my son was going through a medical crisis, I was told by the medical professionals that it would be a very good idea to seek counseling to support myself. Having gone the traditional route with marriage counseling I decided I was tired of delving into the past. I wanted to move forward. To look to the future. And I have never looked back. My son has long since recovered, but I am not willing to give up on my time with my coach Ellen.”
“I sought a life coach many years ago after a painful experience in my life. I was ready and eager to expand myself and felt that I was in the midst of a major transition. I wanted to work with a life coach to help me get clarity and to help me move past fear and limitation in several aspects of my life. It was the best decision I ever made.”
Who would you recommend life coaching to?
“Everyone! It is one of the most inspiring, empowering and transformative experiences I have ever had. It heals relationship troubles and illnesses both mental and physical–best of all, it prevents them from starting. It re-calibrates my entire approach to life by opening up a larger, deeper, spiritual perspective–and it’s also a fascinating and very enjoyable process. I come away feeling calmer, wiser, lighter, and somehow more than human–almost as if I’m wearing wings.”
“I would recommend life coaching to anyone who is interested in having a true understanding of themselves, the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s not always pretty, but it is always honest, inspiring, and enlightening. It was the best decision I ever made.”
“Everyone. Just like great athletes or professional opera singers who hire specialized coaches to help them get to the next level with their gift and talent, working with a life coach is the same thing…helping an individual get clarity on their goals, their God given gifts, their dreams, their lives in a very big way. Working with a coach is a gift you give to yourself – it is a time for you to focus on you. Every individual walking this planet has the great opportunity to expand his or her world, experience, life, work, play. A great coach helps move you in that direction.”
What do you like about working with Ellen?
“Ellen has helped me to find my voice. She has this amazing ability to see right through me, to the heart of the matter and challenge me to take responsibility for my actions while giving me the tools to move forward. I am now living the life I desired, and learning to love every minute of it!”
“Ellen brings a huge amount of experience and an innate gift of knowing and compassion to her work as a life coach. She operates with a higher level of consciousness and comes from a place of love, understanding, and authenticity. Ellen has helped me to better understand myself, to open myself up to expansion, to better understand the origins of fear, to get past fearful and self limiting thoughts, and embrace life as a great and grand adventure! She is a great gift to this world!!”
