       – by Dr Timothy Coetzee, from Everyday Health.com

For those of us with MS, the list of complications the disease can bring is all too familiar.  As a Health Coach specializing in supporting people with MS, I can help you work towards a healthier lifestyle.

And if you’re not living with chronic illness, addressing these topics will help you maintain your health.

I’m available via Skype or FaceTime, for those outside the NY area.

Elissa was very professional and made the whole presentation enjoyable.

Larry, New City, NY

Elissa was very professional and extremely helpful…[she] provided a safe and gentle approach…which allowed me to explore my emotional connection to foods…I would absolutely recommend Elissa to anyone and everyone who seeks help, advice and understanding of food.  This was a wonderful learning experience for me on many levels.

Lori, Peekskill, NY

Elissa helped me work toward my goals through positive reinforcement and encouragement at each session. She provided the guidance I needed to get in tune with my eating habits and recognize how these habits affect my overall well-being. In addition, she…assisted me in striving towards a balance, not perfection, with my whole being.

Melissa, Tarrytown, NY

Elissa helped me with my awareness of my eating habits and what I should eat vs what’s available…fake food vs real food. I would  highly recommend Elissa. She is a superb listener and will offer creative, flexible ways to incorporate healthy eating habits into your busy lifestyle.

I found Ms. Holzman’s presentation the most valuable part of the day.
