"The new dawn blooms as we free it. For there is always light if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it."
- Amanda Gorman
Coaching is iterative to each of my clients.
I support my clients to build a practice that anchors them and gives them the capacity to lead from their truth (not the tangled truths of others / outdated programs / limiting beliefs / illusions.) I lean on my full suite of skills, training and experiences, including my own powers of guidance, reasoning, analysis, and thinking, in addition to intuition. I use these to support my clients and guide them towards their own answers.
I work with people who primarily identify as sensitive, empathic, and spiritual. They are diverse in their roles and lives, from corporate executive leaders, clinical psychologists, international aid workers, and more. One thing that have in common is that they care, deeply. They are oriented around service, justice, inclusion and equity. Because of this, they are also often depleted and need support for grounding, boundaries, and a way to be in the world that honors them just as they are, while they also care, so much.
I work with leaders seeking to adjust and find their authenticity in leading teams and their organizations, as well as those seeking to make the leap to a new career, consultancy, or personal endeavor.
I am here to guide my clients to build a practice and tools they can use for a lifetime to make the right choices for themselves as their life ebbs, flows, changes and shifts.
I coach to support my clients in self-actualization and autonomy so they can live their lives from their anchored truth, and who know how to adjust for their truth when their growth changes. The maximum time I will work with a client 1:1 for coaching is 12 months, and most of my clients engage with me for 3 - 6 months. (My minimum is 3 months, it takes time to build a practice and shift patterns.)
Coaching is not a replacement for therapy. Coaching is action oriented support in present time to help you reach a goal moving forward. Coaching is not to unpack what may have happened in the past. If you are in acute mental crisis or experiencing mental health issues I will not be able to work with you as a coach until you have been able to seek therapeutic support with an appropriate professional.
Sometimes people aren't ready to do the work with coaching and that's okay. If you aren't ready to do the work, engage with the challenges of your own growth, and know that resistance is a part of the process, now isn't the time.
Ultimately, I believe that while it's a challenging time to be a human in the modern world, it's also an amazing time. There is so much opportunity to do good and make real change. We don't have to do what we've always done. At the individual, the family, the community levels and beyond, we can make real differences, now.
I get out of bed in the morning to help people be unplug from false narratives, uncover their superpowers and full potential, and create a world anchored in courage and truth. I don't have my clients' answers, but I help them to uncover the answers they've been looking for.
Coaching is $675/month for two 90-minute sessions or three 60-minute sessions/month.
Coaching agreements are structured in increments of 3 or 6 months, depending on client goals.
For clients that wish to have four 60-minute sessions per month, coaching is $900/month.
I do not coach one-off sessions for new clients. (You might enjoy a reading... they often have a "next steps" affect for a current situation.)
NOTE: In August 2022 coaching shifts to $775/month.
My coaching roster is currently filled, new coaching clients will begin after August, 2022.
Have a unique situation? Let's talk.
Now, how can I help you?
"I came into this work really craving one on one discussions that went deep. Where I could set down the balls in the air and take stock of my priorities and goals. I also wanted to work with someone who wasn’t following a strictly prescribed model, but who exceled in being agile and personal. Someone who brought joy and an inquisitive spirit to the table. Fortunately, I found just this person with Ellen."
Jessica M., Corvallis, OR
"Ellen is highly skilled, passionate, and a fantastic communicator. She has an innate ability to view a situation holistically and find the root nugget that can be adjusted to improve outcomes for everyone involved. She is a coach, a healer, an advocate, and a true gem! I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
Dr. Emily Wolbers, ND
"I had such an amazing experience working with Ellen. I was feeling very stuck (personal life, work, career decisions) and wasn't sure what kind of help/guidance I needed- but I am so glad I found Ellen. Her approach felt tailored to my specific situation and she truly listened to me and met me where I was at on any given day. After working with her for 2 months, I definitely felt I had gained insights and practical tools for keeping myself on track, organized, motivated, and generally just able to be kinder to myself. I could go on and on, but I think Ellen is doing amazing and important work and I recommend her highly."
Dani T., Portland, OR
"Ellen was referred to me as a great resource, inspiration and professional to help me take some next steps in my personal and professional life. She fully lived up to my expectations. Better, she exceeded them because of 3 big reasons:
1. She clearly is not in this to make and charge hours, she's in it to help you identify your own barriers and has great tools to bring to life;
2. She has the unique capability of combining the rational and emotional and;
3. The intake was such an honest moment to assess a mutual connection to start this journey.
You'll absolutely be better for it!"
Ellery E., Portland, OR
"Ellen's coaching provided me with the piece I'd been missing: managing energy and boundaries to help me move forward. Ellen amazed me with her ability to listen - deeply and compassionately - to hear what I needed and where I was stuck. She designed projects and experiences that taught me how to self-heal and release patterns and energy that no longer serve me. There is some magic flowing through Ellen; she is truly connected to the Universe. I feel so grateful to Ellen for the insight and self-awareness she has empowered me to cultivate and I highly recommend her, especially if you feel 'stuck.' Those who know and partner with Ellen recognize what light and joy and wisdom she brings to any interaction. Thank you, Ellen!"
Sarah W., Los Angeles, CA
"Ellen is an extraordinary coach. She is highly intuitive and leads you straight out of your illusion. She has the gift to see what is blocking your success and progress. She helped me to understand the old patterns and let it go. Her positivity is contagious. Your energy level will shift immediately.
I definitely recommend her…simply because the best investment is in yourself… she will create a positive change. And that’s so worthy!"
Katerina S., Vienna, Austria
"My goodness - where to start. Ellen helped me see what other healers had elevated but more indirectly: my boundary between myself/my experience and the world is the most important one for me to strengthen and maintain. Her deep and careful listening + an unwavering belief in me and my potential led me to a place of empowerment where I can own and maintain my boundaries.
Ellen, thanks for being detail-oriented and yet open-minded/flexible. A rare combo!"
