Laura Elmore

Laura Elmore, a life coach with a nature-based approach to healing, has opened a new business in Westchester. Elmore, who has a graduate certificate in ecotherapy, facilitates workshops for groups wishing to tap into the wisdom of nature for connection and healing. She is also trained in Reiki I and II and mindfulness-based stress reduction. “My passion is to connect people with their authentic selves, with each other and with nature,” she says.

Elmore embarked on her own spiritual journey of healing in 2010, after losing her 13-year-old son to leukemia. “Every day I spent time in nature and felt a profound connection to my son and to all of life, which gave me hope and the strength to move forward,” she says. “My work focuses on helping others wanting to step forward in life after feeling stuck, so they can feel more fully present and alive.” After having spent most of her career “following other people’s idea of what success means,” she decided to listen to her intuition, becoming a certified life coach and pursuing her desire to help others through coaching and nature-based healing. The result is her new practice, Laura Elmore Life Coaching & Ecotherapy.

“I feel surrounded by love and completely at peace in nature,” she says. “And that is where you will find me in my spare time—hiking the Hudson Valley or at a national park with my teenage daughter.”
