Raise your hand if you've had challenges with understanding yourself (like REALLY understanding yourself) along your journey... and then, raise your hand again if you were taught you need to work harder, fix yourself or apply mindset strategies and goal setting to help you rise above those challenges...
If you're like me, you likely raised your hand twice.
Here's thing, "finding your voice" and understanding why you communicate and show up the way you do has a little to do with mindset and goals and a lot to do with allowing your body to feel safe to express yourself in any given moment.
I'm in the trenches with you, doing this work on the daily.
This is where our work together takes centre stage!
I started my life as a painfully shy child (I used to hide behind my mom's bell bottoms).
I knew I had so much to say, but the words wouldn't move past my lips.
I became a perfectionist and wouldn't say "boo" unless it was at the right time, to avoid feeling humiliated.
I also had a BIG passion for singing. So, imagine that conundrum!
I've also lived in a large body most of my life and spent a good number of years waffling back and forth between shrinking myself so I could be more conventionally acceptable, and staying silent in my larger body so as not to draw attention to myself, I didn't know it before, but this was WISE AF on my nervous system's part.
Weather we're working together in a VIP 1:1 Coaching Package, A Group Workshop or Retreat OR you hire me to be a Keynote Speaker at your event, here's what the work is all about.

"I was struggling with celebrating myself and believing my voice was worth sharing. It was empowering to open up and share my truth and struggles. Since this opening, I’m empowered to speak up and trust my voice."
“Elise has helped me uncover areas of my life and work where I was ready to express myself more authentically. As an entrepreneur this has been life changing! It has allowed me to refine my skills in listening and speaking from a place of personal truth, power and authenticity”
“This work makes me feel so empowered. I've been encouraged to trust my voice despite my inner critic. I've gone from staying silent or responding in fight mode to expressing myself from a more regulated state. In this work, I've felt safe to build my confidence and ability to speak my truth. ”
“Working with Elise, I was able to let go of some of my fears around perfection or looking silly, and sink into what it meant to identify myself, my desires, and my goals. Elise helped shift my perspective from being a passive character in my own life, to a much more active one. I highly recommend working with Elise if you struggle with communicating not only with others, but also with yourself.”

I am a white, cis gender fat woman with financial privilege and I frame my coaching from that point of view. I have also purposely created this work to celebrate diversity with intention and to create an affirming culture of bravery and belonging, where every participant can be their fullest selves and speak their authentic truth.
I live and work on the sacred land of Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People, and I acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land.
