Her coaching powerfully combines her business acumen, expertise, empathy and clarity. Her goal is to help her clients excel at home and at work. Her clients receive the value of her expertise, global perspective, and a deep understanding of change management for personal and career success.

“I highly recommend Ela. She helps her client quickly get to the heart of the matter with a great balance of directness and support. She has an exceptional ability to ask exactly the right question, and she's not afraid of challenging her client to lean into going deeper in exploring obstacles to achieving their goals.  I made a lot of progress working with Ela in relaxing about major life changes that were causing stress.” John
