In just 6 months, I got the promotion
during one of the hardest years of my life...

I made a lateral move but was ready to get to the next level (and the money to match)
Elena helped me transform the way I communicated.
Everyone noticed (from the senior manager at work who witnessed me owning my space on a project to my family and friends who saw the change, too).
From the moment I said “YES” to Elena, everything just started happening. In just 6 months from now you could be in a totally different place, too... Do it!

"Windows blew open for me…
remarkable professional expansion
(even significant help with parenting!)
and somehow making it lighter to be me!”

 “Elena is a truly remarkable coach---humorous, warm, strong, empathetic, and super clear. She listens at multiple levels and responds on even more of them. I found her combination of discussions, insightful questions, specific exercises, and weekly practices incredibly helpful.”

... a unique mix of badass, compassionate listener, and go-getter in one person."
The thing I love most about Elena is her ability to be gentle with you while moving action forward in a real, sometimes unexpected, way. She picked up on patterns of mine and implemented a variety of ways to get me more aware and then tiny steps to create change. And every step mattered - whether it be giving my best self in an audition I had prepared for or making time to catch up and get coffee with a friend - both were crucial to my well-being. She never made me feel like something wasn't possible - there was always some way to go after the things I had been sitting around "dreaming" about. She gave me concrete ways to go after them - all while being compassionate with myself. She has a unique mix of bad ass, compassionate listener, and go-getter in one person.

"...leaves you feeling courageous and empowered..."
From the instant we met Elena's warmth, wit and sharp intuition created a level of comfort and connection as she pushed me to have conversations I had never had at loud before. She has an incredible gift for helping others connect with their internal thoughts, and she's incredibly talented when it comes to providing thoughtful support and guidance from the moment you meet her. She stimulates your mind and leaves you feeling courageous, empowered and ready to rock! After 60 minutes with Elena I felt more organized and energized than I could have imagined, and she leaves an impression that can't be forgotten.

"It’s real, raw, soul-stimulating work."
This work is life changing. It’s real, raw, soul-stimulating work. When I first started working with Elena, there were a few parts of my life where I was seeking positive change - most notably, my relationship with myself. I have always prided myself on being self-aware, but I had no idea how much I had to learn about myself until I embarked on this journey with Elena. I discovered how much I let fear hold me back from being the person I wanted to be and allowed it to drive nearly every decision in my life. Elena is nothing short of inspirational. She approaches this work with passion and love, and allows her beautiful spirit to shine through every single session. She challenged me to take a step back from the life I was living and ask myself, “What do I want? Who do I want to be?”, then she dared me to be THAT person- to show up every single day and live the life I always wanted to live. She held me accountable for my progress and awakened me to my own strength, beauty, and passion. Most importantly, she empowered me to be the creator of my own life. The lessons and tools I learned from Elena have helped me to continue to make progress on my own. I see the world differently now. Even on the hard days, the emotional days, the frustrating days, I view every single day as a new opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and be the person I want to be.

“Her uncanny ability to address the root cause rather than try "fix" something, means long term shifts in old habits.”
I started working with Elena at a difficult time in my career - I wasn't really open to trusting in anyone, let alone a complete stranger! Also, did I really "need" a coach?"
Elena is trained as a professional coach, but what makes her truly unique is that she sees her clients holistically, understanding inherently how so much interconnects, and journeys with her clients to uncover it all. Her uncanny ability to address the root cause rather than try "fix" something, means long term shifts in old habits.
It is through working with her, I have started to bet on myself more, and where i would typically withdraw because of discomfort/unease, I 'invite" dialogue. She empowers with firmness, but also grace and gentleness; there is never any judgement, but rather joy and celebration.
I am so grateful for having worked with her, and hope to again in the future.

" excellent partner in your life journey..."
Prior to coaching with Elena, I felt a consistent external pressure to “succeed” and “accomplish”. It was an exhausting way to live and I never felt as though I was accomplishing what I truly wanted. She helped me to determine what I really wanted in my life and helped me to find the courage within myself to focus all of my attention on fulfilling my dreams without numerous and time consuming contingency plans. Once out of my own way, I was able to take small and significant steps each day that have amounted to a substantial accomplishment over the last few months. Elena is intuitive to your needs and honest with her words. She can compassionately praise your hard work and bring you back to task if you begin to stray. She is an excellent partner in your life journey and is clearly someone who practices what she teaches. Unafraid of the tough questions, she will be able to shepherd you through your process as you step into your own truth and happiness.

…I feel empowered and have found my voice …
I have grown (up!) so much both personally and professionally as a result of my coaching sessions with Elena. Elena has helped me to find my confidence and be my authentic self. Elena’s wisdom, emotional intelligence, tough-love and practical approach make her a truly wonderful guru/mentor/coach. I feel empowered and have found my voice thanks to Elena and can see and feel the results in both my career and personal life. I think this is something everyone could greatly benefit from! It’s honestly improved my outlook and whole life in such a positive way!

"Elena opened my eyes to another way of being…"
The day I started working with Elena was as transformative to my life as the day I fell in love with my soulmate. Elena opened my eyes to another way of being that not only helped me get clear on what I wanted in life and the "how's" of creating it; but more importantly, to choosing that life through a lens of joy and fulfillment instead of "never enough." My relationships, professional success, spiritual connection, and physical well-being have thrived exponentially since starting my work with Elena. Her combination of powerful questions and nurturing support brought me life-changing breakthroughs, and I am in awe of her compassion, grace, and power as a coach.

“Elena really has a gift. She is exceptional at reading between the lines… hearing what you’re not saying...and distilling it down.”
Before working with Elena, I wasn’t even clear what I wanted for this new career role. She helped me step into fully declaring what I wanted. Because of Elena, I was able to express to my company how much I wanted to travel, the companies I wanted to invest in, and exactly what I wanted my leadership role to look like. Elena got me out of indecision paralysis and finally able to trust myself. Rather than being the follower of direction...I became the leader.

“Elena's a rare gem in the coaching world, because she equally understands how to manage professional and personal satisfaction.”
Elena Armijo is an excellent exec coach and mentor. I came to her with a few really ambitious goals and she helped me to more than achieve them. Her style is holistic - she looks at you as the whole person, and works with you on a plan of action that helps you both achieve your professional goals AND helps you to actualize to a higher level of who you really are. In my six months working with her, I got coaching on how to achieve my two stated professional goals, and I hit those goals, ahead of schedule. The unexpected, hugely positive surprise, is that Elena also taught me through numerous exercises how to fully understand, be aware of, and embrace who I am, leading to new levels of satisfaction. Elena's a rare gem in the coaching world, because she equally understands how to manage professional and personal satisfaction. Those who are thinking about coaching, or choosing between coaching options, should really consider getting to know her better!
