About Me

Hi, I’m Ellen. 

I’d have to say the thing I’m most fascinated with is the human mind. I get curious about how it works and why. I know a lot of people out there have a mind that they aren’t very good friends with. I’ve been there before too. that's why I’ve spent the last decade exploring the art and science of how to become friends with it.

 

I’m a certified hypnotherapist, Vedic meditation teacher, and experienced yoga instructor. I've studied neuroscience, the subconscious mind, done a lot of “shadow work”, and applied these modalities in my own life on a daily basis. It might seem complicated but when you break it down, these are all just different ways of learning how to look at the mind and understand its stories.

We all have a story (many of them actually) that explain exactly how and why we got to be the way that we are. Many of our stories originate in early childhood and can be hard to remember but believe it or not, they are all stored in our bodies and in our subconscious minds. Taking the time to learn about and understand our stories - and examine them with compassion - is the best thing we can do for ourselves and others. When we do this, we’re able to find more empathy for ourselves and others. We’re able to create change, grow, and live rich, fulfilling lives that we feel proud of. 

 

Some of us know our stories quite well and others haven’t yet explored them too much. That’s okay. Life is busy and sometimes we just don’t know where to begin or how to access it. The mind can be a scary place, after all. 

 

The thing that fills me up most is helping others to look at their stories and to do so with great skill and care. It’s the most important work we can do. Because when we make peace with ourselves and our own minds, we become more caring, compassionate, people. And I think the world needs as many of those as it can get. 

 

This is my “why” and it’s the reason why I left my safe and successful corporate career to become a full time hypnotherapist, meditation coach, and yoga instructor. These practices have left their mark on my life in the most healing, profound way and I know that in guiding others with these modalities, they too can heal from the past, become friends with their mind, and live joyful lives. 

 

To think that you’re broken or need to be fixed is the biggest lie there is. You’re already whole, just as you are. You always were and you always will be. You just have some hurt inside that hasn’t fully healed (we all do). 

 

Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, are lacking self confidence, have a health issue, or relationship challenges, I’d love to help guide you along that healing journey. 

 

It is both a privilege and an honor to serve your highest and greatest good in this way. If you choose to work with me, I promise I will handle your emotions with great care.
