Aside from her studies Elaine is passionate about working with individuals, couples, groups and organizations through solution-focused coaching and training.“For me solution-focused practice is like ‘coming home’. Elaine is the mother of three amazing children, the ‘human’ of one adorable puppy, the blessed friend of a few, a runner, a passionate learner, an adventurer and holds a deep appreciation for all things sacred.

 When I sat down with Brian I felt comfortable, there is always a good vibe that generates from him.
The questions Brian asked were relevant to my real life situation and from asking those questions; I have gone after my passion and making my dream come true with owning my own business.
Brian is a positive influence in this world and there should be more people like him as he makes a difference, he has helped me go after my dream and is an excellent life coach.
