What my clients are saying:
“No words can describe how grateful I am for everything Elisa has done for me. She helped me understand what I want, identify the obstacles I face, and come up with a practical plan to tackle them while at the same time cultivating my confidence to do so. She has been such a positive and empowering force that my best friend started seeing her after she saw how much it helped me. Lots of people can help you achieve a task, but very few can help you achieve your dreams. Elisa has been my dream facilitator, and I will be ever grateful.” Sandra Ordonez, Collaborative Nation
“Elisa has a special gift to inspire and empower people. When I began working with her, I was confused about what I wanted and frustrated by my own inability to move forward. With her help, within months I applied and was accepted to graduate school. Elisa helped me go from being overwhelmed by big, abstract ideas to a realistic plan of action. But most importantly, she knew how to help me get out of my own way. She taught me how to overcome fear, procrastination and a lack of confidence. Today, I am truly grateful for a new understanding of how to believe in myself, despite the obstacles.” Bridget F., Queens, NY
Here are some of the questions I get asked by potential clients:
What’s your coaching style?
My coaching style is to empower my clients into finding their answers within, and into getting clearer about where they want to go, and how to get there. My approach is to intuitively listen and to pay attention to hidden messages, and energy, which can provide the clues needed to help them move forward. I hold my clients accountable to transform their lives and pursue their fullest potential. I also heard clients say that I was tough in a kind way, when they didn’t complete something we talked about. In that case, there are usually additional barriers that need to be uncovered and revealed.
I combine my education and business experience (helping run my family’s business, coaching and training entrepreneurs, starting, running and closing WomenandBiz.com, writing and publishing my first book, and the MBA), with my own self-growth and self-love journey (working with career and business coaches, therapists, alternative healers, and taking courses on Spiritual Depth, Reiki Mastery, 12 Levels of Light Ascension and applying that knowledge in my life and teachings), and I customize my coaching according to where you are and where you want to go. Most importantly, I’m passionate about helping my clients transform themselves and their lives, connect with their hearts and true self, and pursue their business and life passions.
How can I know if coaching with you is right for me?
We can have the initial free call to determine if I am. I would also recommend that you spend some time reading my blog posts, to see if the messages I’m sharing resonate with you.
How do I know which package is right for me?
I can help you decide. Contact me to schedule a call and discuss it.
Do you have a system in place?
Absolutely! We will start from where you are, we will look at your current situation and what’s working and what’s not, and get clear on where you would like to go. I will assist you in redefining your goals, connecting with your feelings, while working to release your fears and blockages, and creating a step by step plan to get there, and holding you accountable to taking each step. It’s a combination of visualizations, connection to the feelings, adjustments, reassessments, releases, reality checks, an action plan, and the action.
How much work will be required of me?
It is all going to depend on where you are, where you want to go, how far you are from achieving it, and how committed you are to making it happen. It is also going to depend on everything that is happening in your life and the time you have available to commit to it between calls. We work with your own schedule, although most likely than not, you will be asked to move out of your comfort zone. No worries, whatever you walk into, it becomes the new comfort zone once you get there.
What techniques would you use?
Breathing exercises, guided meditations, Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), energy release work, writing exercises, connection to feelings, and the business side of goal setting, action planning, marketing and social media planning and action, budgeting, pricing and negotiation techniques.
What happens after the package is over?
We can reassess where you are, and discuss if continuing with coaching could take you further in pursuing and living your life purpose and passion.

Here is what Maya S. from Los Angeles, CA had to say after our 30-min. free call: “Thank you for the amazing coaching session and your email with the information! I haven’t been this inspired in nearly 4 years. I felt as if a blindfold had been removed.”
