Kate F., Portland, OR


Ellen is a stellar guide! Her feedback, questions, and reflections were just what I needed and right when I needed them. I don't know how she did it, but she kept it up over the course of our time together. She helped me move into a new phase of my professional life as well as build some skills I'll use forever professionally and personally. I'd recommend her to any person or organization ready to look in-ward in order to level-up!

Sarah W., Los Angeles, CA


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!

As public agencies work toward racial equity, diversity, and inclusion, things need to be done differently so all people thrive. Ellen brings experience, strategy, humor and joy to that work, for transformational results. Her facilitation is very strong, and she can work with a room filled with a few people or a few hundred.

When I work with Ellen, I feel confident that we are getting to system change through her heart-centered work.
