She served as a United States government contractor in Heidelberg, Germany where she implemented a teen substance abuse program.

In 2016, the Dallas office opened and Elizabeth Didlake joined the team.

Elizabeth Didlake, MA, CLC
Owner/Certified Life Coach/Mediator

Through her work in counseling agencies, schools, and now in her private coaching practice, Elizabeth has refined her life coaching, facilitation and mediation skills.

Her genuine concern for people is evidenced by the variety of support she offers. Elizabeth covers mindfulness and stress reduction, anger management, life transitions, mediation and conflict management, goal setting, and decision making and risk-reduction around drugs and alcohol. Elizabeth believes that when people learn healthy coping strategies, they may never turn to destructive behaviors to manage stress.
