Who We Are
We are a life, academic and career coaching company that specializes in serving young folk: high school through college students, recent graduates, and young professionals.
We are the only company of our kind: our programs are a unique blend of life coaching, executive skills training, and academic/career consulting you won't find anywhere else. They take into account the whole person while remaining practical, which makes sense to us.
At Elan, we are more than mentors, we are certified professional coaches who have jointly logged thousands of hours helping clients be the best they can be.

What We Do
Coaches work with clients in 1-on-1, hourly sessions, most often on a weekly or biweekly basis.
In coaching sessions, we ask you simple, curious questions to help you address stumbling blocks and identify goals. Stress, low motivation or grades, relationships with others or yourself--we can cover anything that affects your life, not just part of it.
In academic/career consulting sessions, we teach concrete skills that are most useful to your stage in life, whether they be how to apply to college, or how to write a resume and search for jobs, all the while taking into account your life journey and story.
Why It Works
At Elan, we use life as a convenient vehicle to teach concrete life skills, empowerment, resourcefulness, and emotional literacy and resilience.
We have found that major life transitions present the best opportunities to reevaluate what works in your life and what doesn't.
If you're about to go from high school to college, or college to the working world, and you feel lost or find yourself procrastinating or struggling to prioritize tasks, let's talk!
We've been there and get what you're going through.
