  • from Jenn McMurdo on 19 Nov 2015

    Elif is a joy and a strength to work with. Her coaching style is one of ease and caring. I felt like I was talking to a friend and with that style I was able to get clear very quickly. She has great balance in her ability to build trust and challenge thought processes when needed. In just a few sessions, I had complete clarity and clear direction.


  • from Annie O'Connor on 11 Jul 2015

    Elif is a great resource for anyone going through the divorce process, or recovering from it. Her book, "Mostly Happy" describes in detail what one can expect and plan for. It is a must read for anyone considering or in the process of divorce. I recommend the story line as well as the details.

    Elif has a thorough knowledge of mechanisms of pre- and post-divorce life management. I believe her training has provided her a foundation on which she has developed her own personal technique and that has been extremely helpful to her clients. I have benefited from our discussions in my personal life and would recommend her services to others for anyone who is looking to better themselves.
