"A HUGE WIN FOR ME"
I sought out Ellen because I desperately needed a creative coach - someone who could help me get started on an artistic project (songwriting) when I felt like I had no idea where or how to begin.
Ellen is supportive and nonjudgmental, and her wide-range of artistic skills and experience makes her an informed and tactical coach. I loved the flexibility of our work together, whether she was giving me prompts to get going, pushing me improve a lyric, or helping me figure out how to notate a rhythm. With Ellen's support and guidance, I was able to accomplish my goal of writing (and even recording!) three songs during the course of our work together - a huge win for me!
