Hey Truth Speaker,

Fact: The world needs to hear your voice! 

It's time to lead, with your truth!

This is where meaningful strategy meets the confidence to speak your truth!

Lead With Your Truth is an 18 page PDF workbook outlining the somatic and soulful approach to using your voice confidently in life and leadership. 


You are not bad at speaking up...

You're navigating a cultural narrative that suppresses authentic expression.

If you're like the folks on my coaching roster, you're ready to speak your truth in a way that feels soul-aligned; for yourself and the other people you speak to. 


And changing communication culture can be challenging:

  • your body might give you cues that say "this isn't safe", so you wisely resort to staying silent.
  • you may start to people please to avoid conflict and judgement. 
  • maybe your throat locks up and you can't even say a word when it's time to speak up. 
  • perhaps you worry about how you'll be perceived if you share your ideas and voice your boundaries.

This all makes SO.MUCH.SENSE.

It makes sense because our bodies are always working to keep us safe, especially living under the societal pressures and personal experiences we deal with on the daily, as women and marginalized folks that have so much to say. 

There is nothing wrong with you.
You are not "weak".

You are still very much cut out to be a truth speaking leader in your life and work.

You've likely found your way here because you're seeking support with the sometimes impossible hard conversations, and being vocal and visible in your life and  work.

I'm happy you've landed here!

It's time to speak from your heart!

Welcome to the Art and Soul of Speaking Up, My Friend!

I'm a Somatic Voice and Communication Coach for public speakers, creatives, entrepreneurs and folks in leadership that are ready to dive deep, do what their soul came here to do, and make big impact doing their life's work.

Over my 20+ year career, I've helped thousands of people like you connect with their truth, get clear on who they really are, and share that truth confidently with the world. 

My clients are done defining their lives by oppressive cultural narratives.

They're done sacrificing sacred boundaries to "stay in line", overthinking every move and giving away their power. 

They are done hiding. They're ready to embody ease and grace in life and work.

I see you, powerful soul.

If pushing through and "faking it till you make it" was a sustainable option, you wouldn't be here seeking support for your own personal and professional growth.

The direction you're moving needs you to flip the bird to the patriarchy and all of the other systems that suppress the power of speaking authentic truth, AND heal your nervous system so you can speak from your heart! 

Welcome, to a brave and shame free space where you can

I'm Elise (she-her)

Here are some kind words my fabulous clients have said about our work together:

“Fabulous! Empowering! Freeing!
I’ve discovered that this work is the path to more of everything, and that it’s less about mindset and more about training my body that it’s safe to express myself. Elise gets to the root fast by encouraging me to be present to the wisdom of my body.”

Becky Keen - Business and Mindset Coach

"Before working with Elise, something in my body or subconscious was holding me back - literally. My throat would often feel like it was closing in or blocked when I was talking. I had a call with Elise that was so transformational, it raised my awareness of my body wisdom and love for my whole self. Anyone on the fence about doing this work, DO IT! I have no doubt that Elise could lead anyone through their limiting beliefs towards full body expression. Who wouldn’t want that?"

Stephanie Peters- Barlett ~ Reconciliation Coach

It's truth time!

The number one reason we struggle with speaking up is rooted in nervous system science...

... and less to do with a mindset fix. There's actually nothing TO fix.  

Let's be real... the world is a challenging place to navigate right now, it's ok to acknowledge that challenge and how it takes a tole on your nervous system.

Your nervous system is designed to choose safety and belonging over authenticity and will do that for your EVERY TIME you need to speak up. (FYI This is a 500 million year old part of our DNA.)

The challenges you have with with hard conversations and speaking up are rooted in the signals your body is sending to your brain, to keep you safe. 

The real strategy in learning to speak up, be heard and have hard conversations with greater ease is to befriend the sensations and cues your body is wisely sending to you. 

Dignity Centred Communication and The Art and Soul of Speaking Up help to:

  • Heal Imposter Syndrome and Inner Critic.
