Get to Know Us
Elizabeth Brink is a somatic coach for neurodivergent adults. Her approach integrates somatic trauma healing modalities with neurodivergent-affirming life coaching.
Elizabeth became passionate about embodied self-partnership as she noticed her clients shared similar painful patterns of rejection, cruel inner critics, and lifelong anxiety and depression. It became clear that strategies for better life management alone would not lead to lasting transformation and radical self-love.
Her integrated approach is focused on self-acceptance and body-based awareness. Elizabeth empowers clients to embrace their uniquely beautiful way of moving through the world.
As a coach, Elizabeth was trained and mentored by some of the ADHD coaching greats, Nancy Ratey, Linda Roggli, and Denslow Brown. In her somatic work, Elizabeth is trained by the incredible experts at The Embody Lab and by Somatic Experiencing (SEI) teacher Mahshid Hager.
Elizabeth focuses on chronic stress, trauma, body-based/somatic practices, and self-partnership within the framework of neurodivergent coaching. She works with clients individually, in groups within her online community The Enclave, and at her in-person retreat, Respite Together, cohosted with her two sisters.
Before coaching, Elizabeth enjoyed a career in project management, corporate communications, and employee engagement in big tech, non-profits, and for a boutique strategy consulting firm. She understands what it's like for neurodivergent people navigating the job market and workplace, and enjoys supporting clients with their professional paths.
Elizabeth grew up in Plano, TX, spent 12 years in Boston, MA, and in 2017 relocated to Kansas City, MO with her husband and two young children. She spends her down time refereeing preschooler brawls, researching hobbies, baking, doing jigsaw puzzles, and listening to podcasts.

I am a white cis-gendered woman, a parent, a married person, a home owner in Otoe-Missouria, and an entrepreneur.
I am a survivor of generational and childhood trauma, including the death of my infant brother, my parents' divorce, my mother's 15-year battle with cancer. I am the child of an alcoholic who is the child of an alcoholic.
I am the beneficiary of generational wealth and status that I did nothing to earn or deserve. I am a college degree holder and have traveled internationally.
I acknowledge the privileges I carry in my person and the impact they have on my thoughts, views, and business practices. I am committed to unlearning oppressive beliefs rooted in white supremacy and working to make reparations and peace in my community. I welcome feedback and correction.
