About this pro

If you're ready to make a change in your life, you’ve come to the right place. Meeting your ambition means finding the strategies that work for you and allow you to move forward. On your own, that process can take a long time and be filled with emotional pitfalls that will only serve to impede your progress. That’s where I come in. Together, we define what the future looks like and discover the shortest paths to reach it.

Helping others grow. Nothing can compare with helping someone overcoming an obstacle in their life and finding a new path forward. From an early age, people sought me out for advice. As I got older, the concerns became more specific - relationships, careers, personal struggles - and that's when I decided to become a counselor and life coach. Though I've mentored dozens and dozens over the course of my career, I'm still just as passionate about helping others grow as when I began.

    Eli was outstanding. He got straight to the point and dig into the issues that I had. He did not waste time dancing around topics or dragging out sessions. Eli really wants to help people and that came across from the first consultation, which is why I chose him and canceled my other appointments. If you want help Eli, in my opinion is the one to book.

    Eli is thoughtful and thorough- unlike many counselors I've had he clearly thinks about our sessions and what is best for me outside our time together. Further, he has the patience of a saint- I'm quite resistant in therapeutic settings and his dedication to my understanding was absolute. I've worked with therapists, doctors and MA-level counselors and I've never had this quality of analysis and intervention. He tied a lot of my present issues- quite neatly- to instances of child trauma and connected that past issue with present issues via patterns which he saw both quickly and accurately. More importantly, in doing so Eli was able to relate these things to me a in a meaningful way which I was able to hear and understand. Again, I can't recommend Eli enough and can readily say that he has changed my life for the better.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Our first conversation is a free, 30-minute initial consultation. If you feel I'm the right counselor for you, we will then schedule a full, hour-long session, which are $60.

How did you get started in this business?

I had a long career in television and digital media, doing a little bit of everything: on-air appearances, marketing and advertising, writing and investigating stories, leading teams, and even building and growing a local news startup. But through those experiences, I came to understand that my true passion was for helping others discover their path to success. So I changed careers! Now an experienced counselor and life coach, I work to build a relationship with my clients that will lead them to fulfill their own ambitions.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Remember that this is a service. At the end of your first appointment, before committing to further sessions, ask yourself if this new relationship feels like a good fit for you. Your success will be based partly on the strength of the connection you feel with the counselor who is offering to help you reach your goals. If that isn't me, that's okay! It's much more important that you find the right person. It's why I offer  a free, initial 30-minute consultation so you can get to know me. The relationship you form with your counselor will foster positive change in your life, whether it be in building better relationships, improving self-esteem, meeting personal health and self-care goals, or reaching your career objectives.
