Ellie's skillful storytelling engages you and you come to believe in yourself and your own power to create change. While change takes effort, she makes it fun. Seeing results adds to the momentum. The biggest obstacles we face in achieving what we want are ourselves. True there are outside circumstances that may seem daunting, however, once we learn to nurture ourselves, those obstacles are surmountable.
Ellie knows how it feels to be broken by life's challenges. When she was 23 years old, she was divorced and raising three children on my own while making $80 a week as "Ellie from the deli." Overwhelmed with loss and lack, unhealthy habits, addictions and her most devastating enemies of fear, anger and self pity, she discovered that by retraining her mind and body, she could learn how to enjoy life.
