One of the highlights of my career has been getting to work one-on-one with hundreds of clients. There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping guide someone on their path to health and happiness. I have had the honor of watching numerous clients take monumental strides in terms of their physical, mental, and emotional health. I have always wanted to share some of their inspirational stories with you, so my team recently helped me interview one of my amazing clients, Eileen K. Check out her full interview below for an idea of what it is like to work one-on-one with me!
Q: When did you first start working with Elissa and in what capacity (ex. S.O.U.P. Cleanse, one-on-one sessions, etc.)?
A: I first reached out to Elissa in November 2020 for a 1:1 online consultation.
Q: What was the original reason you decided to work with Elissa?
A: I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired! I was 51 and had lost my dad to cancer, my best friend from college to cancer and lost another very dear friend too all in the course of 18 months. I used food to comfort me through the sadness. And then, the pandemic and menopause…it was the perfect storm! I wanted a fresh start onto a path of health and wellness…not just weight loss but the whole package. Mind AND body wellness.
Q: What were the goals you hoped to achieve from working with Elissa?
A: I wanted to lose weight and wanted to learn how to make good food choices and the importance of supplements. Based on what I had read on her website, she seemed to have tremendous knowledge and her life story inspired me to want to make a change. I really wanted to start eating better and give my body the fuel it needs to be energetic and strong again.
Q: How many times have you worked with Elissa since your first visit and in what ways?
A: I’ve had 3-4 follow-up virtual consults since November 2020.
Q: If you have completed a one-on-one session with Elissa, please discuss what that experience was like.
A: Elissa is wonderful! She is kind and sweet, and incredibly easy to talk to. She listens intently to my concerns and frustrations and helps me to dream big and set goals. She reminded me to love myself – which in turn, was instrumental in my journey to wellness. She helped to restore my belief in myself and what I could accomplish!! She also is an absolute genius when it comes to supplements. I could never take vitamins or supplements…. I always felt nauseous. Every recommendation she made, I adopted into my daily regiment, and not once did I feel nauseous!!! I don’t use anything today that I haven’t run by Elissa. She’s so generous with her time; my follow-up emails are always answered quickly.
Q: Have you made any progress towards those goals?
A: I’ve lost 25lbs! I sleep great, and I have more energy. I stumbled a little during the summertime but with Elissa’s help … I was back on track. She’s real … she knows that perfection is not something that we can aim for because it doesn’t exist. She reminds me that we all need to have our treats sometimes, and that’s OK. That’s part of living; we can’t deprive ourselves forever.
Q: What has been the most significant benefit of working with Elissa?
A: The most significant benefit has been my weight loss and my understanding of what my body needs in terms of fiber and protein, and other nutrients. I feel so well informed now more than ever before.
Q: What stands out about working with Elissa that you may not have experienced with other health support?
A: By far, she is the most knowledgeable person I have engaged with in terms of health. I’ve tried multiple nutritionists over the years, and I never received the personal attention or gained as much knowledge as I did during my sessions with Elissa. And perhaps most important – she has motivated and inspired me to not only begin the wellness journey but to seek out peace in all aspects of life! She is my go-to resource now for all things health and wellness of mind and body!
Q: Would you recommend Elissa to a friend, and, if so, why?
A: Absolutely!! Everyone should have an Elissa in their lives!
