Joseph Pollaro is the founder of ELC. He is a health and wellness coach specializing in relationships and mind, body, soul integration. His methodology is rooted in the concept that there is nothing wrong with you that can’t be fixed with what’s right with you. He believes there is rarely a situation that is an irrefutable dilemma. There are always creative choices and resources. He’ll help you uncover those, choose one, and take action.

Joseph seamlessly combines his life experience with overcoming adversity, personal transformations, self-education, and professional training in the art of Strategic Intervention to design a system customized to your individual needs.

Joseph received his coaching education from Robbins-Madanes Training (RMT). Anthony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark and Magali Peysha founded and created Strategic Intervention Coaching.

What is Strategic Intervention?

Strategic Intervention (also known as SI) is a project dedicated to extracting the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Human Needs Psychology, Ericksonian therapy, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, and others. SI encompasses goal setting, habit establishing, communication skill-building, relationship work, high performance, mindset, meaning/purpose discovery, and uses creative modalities to help clients put their dreams into action.

    Joseph and I have been working together for about five years and I will be a lifelong client. His story of personal transformation is a tremendous inspiration to me and continues to be a source of positive energy in my life. His real-life experience makes him very relatable and allows me to feel comfortable with being vulnerable and communicating freely. He has helped me gain clarity and reach acceptance around my Adderall addiction and how it was negatively impacting my health, spiritual life, business, and personal relationships. With his support, I was able to overcome my addiction which has vastly improved my life. He has an innate ability to break complex things down into small actionable steps while remaining pliable to ensure my needs are being met. The habits, rituals, and routines he helped me implement make up the foundation for my daily living and serves me well in all areas of my life. I’m grateful to have him in my corner.

    I want to start by saying how thankful I am to have met Joseph. He has been an amazing coach & teacher for me. I have tried coaching a couple of times before and couldn’t find anyone that seemed to listen, understand me, and want to help. Joseph has exceeded all my expectations with coaching and has been a tremendous support during a very hard time. He has listened and taught me things that have helped me get back on the right track again. He is so down to earth and easy to talk to and most importantly he cares about his clients and is deeply invested in their success. He formulated a plan that helped fit my goals, lifestyle, and personality. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a terrific coach, you will not be disappointed.

    Joe was instrumental in shaping my new life after a sudden turn of events forced me to reinvent not only myself but my career. Joe’s honest, straightforward approach regarding daily habits and mindset was not only simple to follow but produced immediate and profound results. The life lessons I learned have become a part of my daily living ever since I first started working with Joe over seven years ago. If you are truly serious about wanting to make a positive change in your day to day life, I highly recommend Joe Pollaro.
