Hi all!

I’m glad you wandered over here to learn more about who I am and what I am striving to do.

Hi, I’m Ellyse (pronounced like El-lease), I started on a journey in January 2016 to start working on the bigger picture. I wanted to help people, but I had no idea how, to be honest.

-And to be brutally honest, I didn’t even know how to help myself.

So, with a goal in mind, I decided to enroll in a program to help me become a health coach, which also promised to help me learn more about myself too.

I bet you want to know what I learned right? Well, about helping people, I learned several coaching techniques, how to help people hold themselves accountable, and a bit about helping people make new healthy habits. Just to name a few things (seriously, I mean, I learned A TON of cool stuff).

As for what I learned about myself, I learned I am even more awkward than I initially thought, I have a really hard time articulating what I am trying to say, oh, and lets just talk about because of all the pressure and stress from wanting to fit in with the healthy crowd, my brain decided to start binge eating because I couldn’t handle it (hello chocolate anything).

Yep, that’s right. Going through a program that was supposed to help me stressed me out enough that it made me have new problems.

Hold on there though, this isn’t some big sob story (ok, there MAY be times when I am taking down donuts like lions take down zebras on the African Serengeti while I write posts here). This is a site/ story dedicated to honesty, embracing who we are, and honoring that person. The good, the bad, ALL OF IT.

Am I a health and wellness coach? Yes, and I love it! It is amazing helping people learn new things, try new things, and move their lives in new positive directions. Questions about what I actually do? No problem, send me an email!

Do I have everything in my life perfected? No effing way, not even close. You know what though? I think not having everything all together though helps me, help others more efficiently. I can relate.

Thank you for sticking with me through all those paragraphs. I am truly happy and honored to have you here.

What the heck IS a health coach?

I see you were curious. The term health coach is a bit misleading for let me break it down for you:

What I do: I help people change a lot of small habits in many areas of their lives so they can start to live the lives they really are craving. What that means is if you have a few extra pounds you want to wave goodbye to, I’ve got you covered. Lacking energy? I have your back. Cravings keeping you at their mercy? We can come up with a solution. By focusing on changing habits, it is easy for them to just become how you think, which means, you got it, you get changes that last.

Now for the caveat: You need to WANT to change. If you don’t want to put in the work, no amount of me helping you can get you want you are after (let’s be honest here.)

All I do is help people change their lives in huge ways by changing tiny habits.

Does changing tiny habits to make huge changes in your life sound like something you could really get into?Are you ready to take the leap to become the best you?! That’s awesome!

Let’s set up a discovery session via phone or skype first so we can find out the whys and hows of this awesome path you are about to start on!


*Health coaches are not: medical doctors, nutritionists, physical therapists, fitness trainers, psychiatrists, or psychologists. I can however happily help you find any of these professionals if you need help in that arena.
