Dr. Ellen is an answer to a long-term prayer. I have struggled with body image/acceptance issues for 35 years and in a matter of a few short months, she has broken through the chains that have bound me for so very long. I am so very grateful for her expertise, guidance, and professionalism She is AMAZING and has a true gift of healing the physical and emotional ties that bind us women to unrealistic and unhealthy standards.

I would like to thank you for enlightening me, empowering me with tools to see my life in a much more positive way. I was extremely pleased in how you were able to shift the way I view myself and those around me. Most impressive is your straight, down to earth understanding of my situation and encouraging me to answer my own questions. Your generosity allowed me to have this session with you at no cost. I too will pay something forward with a smile on my face and a space in my heart for you. Thank you once again.
—Luanne J, North Carolina
I recently had a Skype session with Dr. Ellen and she’s simply amazing. She got to the heart of my question very quickly, she’s kind, welcoming and genuine. I would highly recommend her services and look forward to working with her more in the future.
—Sue Walsh, United Kingdom
Dieting never worked for me. As soon as I would start depriving myself, I would eat twice as much the following meal or the following week, and ended up gaining weight. Dr. Albertson helped me set goals to reach a lifestyle that I can maintain while feeling happy and good about myself. She puts you on a different path and improves your health and well-being for good.
—Nathalie Bohl, Ph.D., Professor University of Vermont
Ellen is a skilled Psychologist and Nutrition Expert who listens closely to her clients as she assists them in creating a healthy lifestyle that is appropriate for the individual, not a typical ‘one size fits all’ way of thinking about women’s wellness.
—Barbara Elfman, M.S., Harvard Graduate School of Design
It’s great to give up the scale and drop the idea of dieting. Being mindful of what I am eating and noticing how my body reacts to that food is making me have a better relationship with food. I want to thank Dr. Ellen for helping me with my emotional eating. It may not be cured, but every day I feel stronger and better able to deal with it. Dr. Ellen is very good to talk with, I encourage anyone reading this to sign up for a session with her.
—Janet Mackinnon, Ontario, Canada
I worked with Dr. Ellen several years back and have reached out to her over the years when I need an extra ‘push’. Health is not just a profession for her; it is a lifestyle, and something she wants to share with all her clients. She genuinely cares about her clients. She doesn’t just spew facts; she takes the time to listen. She never gives up improving her skills – she’s a true gem!
—Miriam Speert Crowley, Partners Healthcare
A mind and body harmonizing mechanic with a flair for compassion (She is a Dr.!) Helping you to find wholeness and well being!
—Johnney G. Scott
I just wanted to thank you for our session the other day. I really feel that the answers were already inside me, but you helped bring them to the surface. Thanks for taking the time to help me explore my true self! You truly have a gift.
—Lori Beaudin, Alberta, Canada
My experience with Dr. Ellen was my first time working with a life coach. One of the first things I noticed was how well she listened. She was able to assess my struggle from a third-party perspective with no other motive than my own best interest at heart. She used my own words, as well as observations of my body language and tone of voice, to relay back to me truths about my situation that were buried under chaos. Dr. Ellen coached me through a time-constrained, difficult decision that I had previously felt unable to make. I left our call with a sense of certainty and peace.
I highly recommend Dr. Ellen to any woman struggling to see above the waves and gain clarity and perspective for her path.
—Rachel Adams, MS, RD, Texas
Before my session with Dr. Ellen, I knew I was stuck but I wasn’t sure exactly why. Dr. Ellen’s questioning during our talk lead me to my answer. She is able to pull the answer out of you even though you couldn’t yourself. She is very supportive, intuitive and caring. After my session with Dr. Ellen, I am more confident and trusting of my own knowing. She even took notes and sent them to me as well as homework after the call which has helped me focus. I’m thankful for the session with Dr. Ellen as I now know how to get myself unstuck.
—Lisa Meisels, RD, Founder Femmana, California
I call you Rock Star because you gave me this gift (passion) for myself and it has made a beautiful difference in my life. No words can express my gratitude to you except, Thank you from my heart.
—Janine Singh, Trinadad & Tobago
Our time together has resulted in fulfilling my goals of daily peace, joy and happiness. I said it after our first session and it rings true today-you truly have a gift of creating a safe space for your clients to open up to the possibility of changing long held beliefs and patterns that no longer serve them.
A few weeks back, I was listening to an interaction between Abraham Hicks and Dr. Wayne Dyer. During the two hour recording, Abraham shared some thing to the effect of “If someone can help soften your resistance so that you can be receptive to loving/healing energy” it is a good thing. That sentiment immediately reminded me of you. As a client, I found your approach to our coaching sessions to be grounded in authenticity, expertise of subject matter and pure joy!
The amount of personal growth achieved in our work together has led to fulfillment beyond my original expectations. If you are looking to transform your life, Dr. Ellen can guide you through the gauntlet. I cannot thank you enough for assisting me on my journey and I am filled with exuberance as to where the lessons and guidance you provide take me next. You have an amazing way of connecting with your clients so that they can uncover their authenticity.
—April Smidl, Chicago, IL
I discovered Dr. Ellen after reading some of her articles. After having one session with her, I was impressed by her intuition and caring approach. She seemed to understand my struggles and how to help me. Dr. Ellen was well-organized and prepared for our sessions. I really appreciated getting session notes with topics and goals.
One of the issues I was struggling with was my hesitation at marketing my new business. This was not only causing slower growth and but also frustration. Dr. Ellen knew what questions to ask allowing me to uncover the source of the issues and how to remove these barriers. Now I’m enjoying growing my business again.
Dr. Ellen also helped me make my life richer outside of work.
Working with her, I was able to make changes that I had been struggling with for years without results.[
—Carol Trimmer, Dallas, TX
Dr. Ellen worked with me by making fresh observations with empathy and objectivity. I’m grateful that much of what she helped me find wasn’t buried too deeply, but after years of parenting, putting myself second and third —all while worrying over finding the one “real job”—she was able to speed up my process of remembering to do the things I already do well and that make me happy and keep me healthy, and reminded me I must stop wasting time trying to fit myself into a neat label. In other words, to make the most of creating my unique contributions to the world. Dr. Ellen helped me to come to my own credo—that my heart is the boss and my mind is the employee
—Bridgett Kerr, Vermont
I absolutely loved working with Dr. Ellen! She helped me break through barriers in the way I was thinking about weight so I felt re-energized and motivated to achieve my health goals. I’m a work in progress, but I believe in myself again, and know that I can get there. She also helped me recover from a difficult career transition and see things in a new and positive light. I highly recommend her coaching!!
