I have learned so much from my nutritionist Elena. Our one-on-one sessions have taught me such discipline that I have rearranged the way I look at food forever. I have learned about moderation and better choices, and now I am excited to share every recipe and food fact with anyone who wants to learn. I have cut out foods that I thought I would never be able to live without!
Because of these lifestyle changes, and Elena's gentle approach, I have become a better version of myself and feel healthy from the inside out.

After just two sessions, I witnessed results that kept me coming back for more. Elena is truly an emerging leader in the health coaching arena and I would recommend family and friends with no hesitation.
One of the most important things to me is to see someone live what they teach, and I could see examples of Elena’s own habits to stay healthy day in and day out. I could also see the constant work ethic she put into each client she deals with.
Also the one-on-one aspect is really warm: I felt very comfortable sharing information with her that normally I would be nervous to talk about. She really helped me to let myself be free and focus on how to get on track with my health and wellness.
I’m excited about the energy level and physical strength I have developed by following Elena’s guidance. She truly has helped me become fit and happy.

I am a mother of two very active boys who tries to be good to herself while juggling all the needs of the family. With Elena, I realized that I have to allocate some time that is only my time in order to feel balanced and accomplished.
With Elena supportively guiding me, I have started a new morning ritual: getting up earlier and doing some yoga and meditation which clears my mind and helps me to set a good tone for the day. And I find her posts about nutritious snacks, dishes, and drinks very inspiring, easy to make, and extremely yummy! Her nutritious food combinations fulfill and energize me and make me feel loved.
I found myself looking forward to our bi-weekly meetings like an outlet of “me” time. Elena lets you find your own solution that is tailored just for you.

I had developed the bad habit of eating certain highly processed foods (like sandwiches and chips for lunch on the go) that I knew weren't ideal but couldn’t stop. Elena guided me to consistently eating healthy, wholesome foods instead for more sustained energy. She also coached me about how to shop to make tasty meals and snacks for the week.
We worked together to identify “creative proteins,” which for me are important, and she gently dispelled my illusions about some foods I thought were healthy. And at the end of working together, she guided me through my nutritional needs for a nine-mile open water swim, which I completed—and lack of energy for this six-hour feat was never an issue.
I really enjoyed working with Elena because she never was pushy and didn’t judge my unhealthy eating habits—she just guided me through them. Working with Elena was easy and fun, and I highly recommend her.

I have a very busy work schedule and had become a snacker with no way out. Working with Elena helped me turn the page to cooking and eating proper food again which has deeply affected the way I feel emotionally and how I function. Her work is personalized, sensitive, informed, and productive.
My entire way of eating and cooking has changed. I feel much more grounded and calm. My energy level has increased dramatically. Elena provides an endless supply of simple, nourishing, and delicious recipes. It was fun, productive and life-changing to work with her. I cannot recommend her enough.

From our first meeting, I was very impressed by how well Elena listened to me and how up to date she was on a variety of nutrition research; then I was impressed by how thoughtfully she put together a wellness plan for me to try out.
I know Elena's not a doctor, but I have to say she paid more attention to me than my GP does, and she made a connection between two different minor ailments I had that my regular doctor had failed to see. I now consider her counsel a cornerstone of my commitment to healthy living.

Elena’s coaching is an excellent option if you want to feel healthy and eat better. Her approach is pragmatic and flexible. I saw immediate results: sleeping better, a lot more energy, and I feel much healthier overall. Elena helped me to be the healthiest I’ve ever been, and that is no small feat living in a place like New York.

Effective health coaching is the future of healthcare. It’s not just about good nutrition, it’s also about the other aspects in your life that affect your approach to food.
After seeing Elena, I feel more positive… about everything. I gained an appreciation for a wider variety of foods; learned that cooking can be quick, easy, and healthy; and most importantly, I have more energy. Good nutrition definitely helps organize other parts of your life!
Now that my attitude toward food has changed, I’d like to work on my approach to exercise. And I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned with others who might be struggling. Everyone should try out a health coach!

Elena is my go to resource for everything food. Working with her I learned to stay present while I eat and actually enjoy the process, that nourishing food can also be tasty, and to pay close attention to reading the labels. Elena is incredibly passionate about helping others, sharing her knowledge about food and living in a healthy way by taking care not only of her body but her mind and soul, too. She walks her talk and I admire that. Elena has a true gift and just her presence inspires me to be the best version of myself! She has a special place in my heart.
