Elise Clement

Elise Clement is a holistic psychotherapist, life coach and facilitator. She supports women's mental and emotional wellbeing through life transitions, both personal and professional: processing the identity shift that comes with motherhood, navigating the demands of work and mothering, or any other turning point that requires overcoming self-doubt and courageously drawing a different picture of success. She has a special interest in Matrescence and guiding women through self-discovery and self-empowerment at various stages of their mothering journeys: whether they’re trying to conceive, pregnant or actively mothering. Elise works with women one-on-one and facilitates group gatherings where she provides a gentle space for women to feel seen, heard and supported as they reclaim their unique gifts and power in this season of their life.
