Elena's Mission

Who is Elena?
Elena is a justice-seeking, educated romantic, who seeks to help bring couples together and help them maintain a loving relationship. 

What is her purpose?
Elena’s purpose is to help people in the area of love relationships. Demographics: The people who generally seek out Elena’s books, services and /or advice are between 27- 75 years of age. People from all walks of life, and all socio-economic groups and cultures feel they benefit from Elena.  

The Connection.
Elena is a romance and love junkie! However, she is also practical and experienced in life and academically. She knows that love relationships frequently do not bring people their desired results, and as such she is here to help.

Who does she work with typically?
Elena helps people looking for love make better decisions in their search and eventual selection. She assists those that are in various stages of dating. She provides guidance to people contemplating leaving or in the process of leaving a committed relationship. She helps those who are suffering the loss of love. She assists those who have been in committed relationships and now find themselves in the dating world again. Elena helps people go through the full love-relationship cycle. Elena does not act as a therapist but rather as an educator and encourager of relationships and love.  Elena teaches workshops to groups of people that want to improve the quality of love in their lives!

Why people want to improve the quality of their love lives?
Making mistakes in love is costly on many levels. If you are (or have been) in a relationship that is not supportive and loving over time, this will be reflected in your physical, emotional, spiritual and/or intellectual health. Your work, career, and finances will all be adversely effected. Your overall enjoyment and quality of life will be diminished. Selecting a dating partner is important but not as dramatic as selecting the right life partner. Most people apply the same decision-making skills and use the same self-knowledge in choosing a life partner as they used for an inappropriate dating partner. After a commitment has been made and children are brought into the picture, the plot and cycle thickens and continues. Children, as well as other family members, are adversely affected by the decisions and choices one makes in love. Society pays a dear price for children of broken homes and broken relationships. It is part of the human condition to want to find a partner to share one's heart and body. However, practical methods can be employed to meet the human condition/preference in bonding, thereby, bringing about a better and more loving result. And too, there are even global implications for bad decisions in love. The question can be asked, "If we can’t have peace and love in our homes, how we can ever hope to accomplish world wide peace, let alone love?" So then, where can we/you start? ….In reading Elena’s books and/or sponsoring Elena love workshops/seminars you may not only improve the quality of your love life, you may see dramatic changes in the overall satisfaction and joy you have in your life!  And perhaps, in improving love in your life, you can contribute, to the overall theme of the long awaited need for global acceptance, cooperation and love.

Why is Elena qualified to help you?
While Elena has many impressive academic achievements and college/university degrees, what best recommends her for this field of work and has earned her expert relationship status, is her extensive life experience! She has had many unsuccessful and painful relationships. She often knows first hand where you are coming from. She doesn’t sit high from an Ivory Tower and tout pearls of romantic and love wisdom. She has compassion for your situation as well as enough professional and academic training to be able to take in your heart challenges and offer practical solutions. Elena has always been a very observant person and has the ability to convey her love and life observations in a concrete and useful manner. This makes her an invaluable resource. You may not always agree with Elena’s love approaches, however, rest assured she will predictably take the high road. She does not teach men or women how to cheat, deceive or manipulate one another to gain relationship favor. She genuinely wants you to honestly and honorably receive, maintain and enjoy a high quality love relationship. Elena believes in love and wants you to have the best love relationship of your life!
