Daily stress, sexism, and painful events from your past have a cumulative effect in your mind and body, causing you to loose sleep, constantly worry about your future, & have low self esteem. 

The truth is: You can live as the happiest version of yourself - but only if you Release the trauma that you don't even know is locked inside of you and overcome the inner barriers that keep you from Receiving the happiness & abundance you want.

Women Share Their Fantastic Results
from our Training Programs:

Before coming to The Happy Woman Academy, I was having a hard time navigating a troubled relationship, unsure about where to live, unhealthy, challenged by tough situations at work, and felt I was lacking. The support of the programs gave me the tools to respond to ups and downs in a way that solved those issues and allows me to live in a way that prevents many future issues! I’m now at a job I love, happily married, and we just bought a new house! ~ L.L. - Los Angeles, CA

I joined The Happy Woman Academy last year because I felt an overall yearning for a community of like-minded people. Back then, thinking about my finances really stressed me out, but within a month I no longer felt overwhelmed or stressed about money! Elizabeth is a truly gifted healer and in her strength, wisdom, compassion, and integrity, she helps you feel empowered. ~ R.M. - Los Angeles, CA

I joined a Happy Woman Academy Program a few months ago and I instantly started to feel more self-esteem and less willing to tolerate abuse from my partner. My chest even felt more lifted after the first circle! In the past two months my financial state has improved dramatically and my relationship with my daughter has also improved. Thank you for creating The Happy Woman Academy! ~ C.H. - Los Angeles, CA

My issues around romance and career were making me act unkind and I felt overwhelmed. Everything seemed too tough to deal with and I couldn't move forward. I just recently joined The Happy Woman Academy and the instant yet strong bond between the women is really special. After my first workshop I had a big break-through regarding trust and it has allowed me to feel more complete and be more patient, open, and honest in my relationships. My sister recommended I work with Elizabeth and I feel so great in her presence that I’ve continued to work with her privately. Elizabeth is awesome! ~ A.M. - Calabasas, CA

Before working with Elizabeth, I was experiencing a lack in my career, romantic life, and finances. I did not believe I was worthy to have what I truly desired nor did I know how it would be possible. After attending a workshop I felt less attached to my issues and I could separate my issues from my Being and approach it all with more joy and more smarts. The Happy Woman Academy has changed my life and I am so grateful for Elizabeth and the work she is doing. Now I am proud to be a woman - wise, sexy, and strong!
C.S. - Santa Monica, CA

  Within a month of my first workshop I noticed I have a more positive and serene attitude. Sharing with others with total openness and trust is so important, and you can really feel the support and energy of the other women in the circle. I needed the support, love, and great energy of this community. GO! You'll meet wonderful people and will feel the positive energy of the circle if you're willing to share, help, and get help. Elizabeth is a great healer and a very positive person. I'm so happy I found you! Thank you!
~ V.Z - Hollywood, CA

Before working with Elizabeth I was shielding my heart, blocking the sensations so I wouldn't get hurt. After the workshop I started to see changes as I was able to allow the emotions out of me and share them with my partner, finally experiencing the warmth I had been missing. I think the healing was so effective because Elizabeth creates a safe space to open up and be vulnerable in a circle of non-judgmental and supportive women. Go! Now! Worst case you will meet some lovely women. Best case you will leave changed and strengthened. ~ T.W. - Los Angeles, CA

  Before my first Happy Woman Academy workshop, I felt like I was on an endless treadmill with the same problems. My love life, home, career, emotions, and money issues were all impacting my life in a major way and no matter which way I turned, there they were. I figured out that I couldn’t do this alone anymore. I started seeing positive results after 1 workshop! Instead of staying stuck, I got unstuck. In less than I year I’ve opened myself to new positive possibilities and gained a soul freedom and strength that I never knew was in me. ~ S.T. - Venice, CA

    I used to be very private and closed about my feelings prior to The Happy Woman Academy. Afterwards I'm able to connect openly and honestly with friends and family. This took about 3-6 months of participating in a training program. I'm also able to identify issues with a broader perspective now and I communicate more effectively. I think the programs are so effective because of Elizabeth's calm but direct approach and a great group of supportive women. So my advice is JUST DO IT! Go to a workshop and engage in the programs. The HWA Rocks! ~ C.C. - Burbank, CA

   Before joining The Happy Woman Academy program I was struggling to allow closeness in my life and it was putting a strain on my relationships. Within a few days after the first workshop I saw closeness show up in my friendships in a way I had not expected, they were so super supportive and I was able to let myself lean on them in my time of need. Since then I have been getting stronger and becoming more clear on what I want and I feel more open to Being in my life. ~ M.D. - Bev Hills, CA

   I’ve been working with Elizabeth since before The Happy Woman Academy began. Unsatisfying dating partners and chronic pain were the two main issues in my life. My change tends to be slow and organic, yet I started seeing results in just a few days. Elizabeth is great at keeping things "clean", so women get to experience communication that is consistently and genuinely supportive. The other women in the circle are wise and can see things about yourself that you can't. Come to a workshop, that is the fastest, easiest way to find out if it is right for you. ~ E.L. - Los Angeles, CA

   Before coming to my first HWA workshop I was struggling with my partner, career, and emotions and I felt a lot of stress, anger, frustration, and depression. I signed up with the HWA program less than a year ago and immediately noticed changes. Like I feel more relaxed and I now know how to deal with stress and can respond calmly to triggers that used to upset me. Recently, I was able to make an important decision based on what I felt was best for me, instead of putting someone else’s desires before my own wellbeing. My advice to you wonderful women out there who may be interested is: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Get your beautiful self into the The Happy Woman Academy and watch your life transform. I am so grateful to have this healing program & 1-1 healings in my life and want to thank Elizabeth for her commitment to helping women in need. I love you E!!! ~ M.K. - West Hollywood, CA

Meet Elizabeth Menzel
A Mentor with Wholehearted Dedication
to Transforming Women's Lives 

Elizabeth, How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become such a successful Healer?

The short anwer: 25 years, over a decade of training, and I was motivated by pain.

Credentials include:

- Certified Brennan Healing Science Practitioner
- Certified Neuromuscular Therapist
- Certified Z-health Trainer (neurobiologically based pain relief)
- Certified Non-Linear Movement Method® Teacher (a powerful somatic technique that safely removes trauma from the cells)
- Certified Louise Hay Workshop Leader
- Certified in Feminine and Masculine Energy Awareness

My certifications include Conscious Manifestation Embodiment work, Brain Training, Mindfulness, & a whole lot of Compassion.

The full answer: it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and resulting “compelling story” that brought me to where I am today – mentoring good women like you on the exact steps you need to take so you can feel your power, get paid your worth, reclaim your confidence, and manifest what you want... even if you've suffered from trauma and post traumatic stress like I have.

That defining moment in my life happened in 1993. I met an elderly man that looked like Albert Einstein on a train from Budapest to Geneva who told me all about the secrets of how the Universe works. I couldn’t tell you word for word what he said, but from that experience, I started my personal and professional journey of healing. As this sage man was giving me this sacred information, I kept saying to myself “remember this moment, remember this moment.”

Have you ever had one of those magical life changing moments?

Just 2 weeks before meeting this wise man on the train, I was in horrible mental anguish and begging God to end my life. I was bartending in a live music club with a community of friends that I loved, but no one had a clue of how badly I felt. I kept smiling and having fun on the outside, while feeling devastated on the inside.

I’ve since learned that I suffered from PTSD, depression, & anxiety from an emotionally abusive and neglectful childhood and from the relentless daily stress of sexism/sexual harrassment. I felt so lost and directionless, but had no idea of how traumatized I was.

On an insightful friend’s invitation to “get my life together” I set off with about $100 in my pocket and took this trip through Europe that was fraught with adventure! Little did I know that journey would spark a lifetime journey of healing.

Since that and many subsequent adventures in self-discovery - including living in a Tibetan monastery, being initiated by Rainforest Tribal Shaman Elders, training with a Nasa physicist, medical doctors, a Qi Gong Master, and groundbreaking psychologists, getting certified in science based energy healing, learning how to see inside of bodies and energy fields, & traveling the globe for a decade teaching & healing - I’ve built a living as a successful healer.

In the first years of my healer's journey, there was this nagging issue though; in the healing room with my clients I felt so energized, optimistic, powerful, and my skills created phenomenal changes. But outside of the healing room I felt like a hot mess that was full of conflict and pain. I knew I was a good person, yet I was trapped in an abusive marriage for years - bouncing between anxiety and depression!!

My intention for feeling better was all consuming and I worked at it 24/7 to heal the divide between "professional healer Elizabeth" and "personal life Elizabeth." I was hoping to heal myself enough that my then husband would finally stop neglecting and abusing me – but nothing seemed to work.

I felt like I was in a never ending freefall.

And then one of my biggest healing adventures EVER happened in Brussels, Belgium in the Spring of 2003. I call it a “Glimpse of Enlightenment." I saw through the veil of separation and completely understood that everything is made of pure love energy – not the human love energy that we all know – but a love so complete, so pristine, so all encompassing, it is utterly indescribable.

Sure, that sounds awesome. Enlightenment is what every seeker wants - but it’s not all bliss and unicorns. In an instant, every spiritual concept that I thought was "right" - disappeared. I had worked so hard to build my life’s work around healing... but then everything I believed evaporated in a split moment. I was faced with oblivion. That awakening shook me to my core.

Now what was I supposed to do with my life?

Slowly, I came to a deep understanding that within the experience of being human, there are always going to be experiences of Oneness and Separateness. Only a total acceptance of both Light and of Darkness would bring me inner peace. The starkness of "seeing through the veil" softened and my inner battle calmed. I gained the strength to love myself enough to say NO to my then husband’s abuse and leave him. I said YES to my own well being in a whole new way.

This gave me the clarity to see that my job was to use my amazing healing skills to help women like me Release past pain & trauma and Receive what they thought they had lost: a sense of Power, Self Worth, and Confidence.

The divide between “professional healer Elizabeth” and “personal life Elizabeth” disappeared and I started living Oneness in my own unique way - and then started teaching women how they can do the same - and I watched their self-esteem, happiness, and prosperity SKY ROCKET too!

I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping women like you overcome inner barriers and show up as the powerful, happy, confident, secure, fun-loving woman you know you could be.

Women rely on me to help them manifest the big things in life, marriage, homes, careers, and social change projects that help heal the world.

Over the last 2 decades I’ve worked with countless private clients, spoken on stages, collaborated with other amazing healers, and given over 300 workshops around the world. I've been repeatedly featured in "In Style" magazine and my fabulous partner of 10 years and I have been voted "Power Couple of Los Angeles" by the LA Weekly!

Since allowing myself to heal at a deeper level I've lived my childhood dream of hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu & watching the Northern Lights in the Arctic Circle. I even overcame my distain for writing and became a 4 time best selling author.

I offer 2 award winning Science Backed advanced transformation systems:
The Happy Woman Formula
- The Release to Receive Method

I also mentor other Healers in:
- The Advanced Healer Mastery Apprenticeship Course

Who are your clients?

I don't know how it keeps happening, but my clientele includes some of the most influential people on the planet, including multiple billionaire industry moguls, Olympic athletes, international heads of state, and celebrity stars.

But mostly I
work with heart-centered women just like you, who have gone through some tough times and are now ready to live their best life possible and feel great doing it. They want to reach the next level in both their professional and personal life, yet they have never been taught exactly how to stay energized, avoid energy leaks, maintain their power, and learn how to open up their receiving channels so they can let more money, health, and love flow IN.

What makes you different from other healers and mentors?

Probably the biggest thing you will notice is my high technical skill level. I trained for over a decade and everything I teach is based in physics, neurobiology, and neuroscience. I rely on DATA and ACTUAL PHYSICAL WORLD RESULTS. Combine that with ancient unbroken lineage transmissions that have been passed on to me and I'm able to provide deep and lasting tranformations. I like to say I give you Inner World Systems for Outer World Success - that are proven to always work!

What that means to you is that you get a science geek-practical-mentor
– meets –
wise-sage-healer. I’m also very compassionate, empathetic, and transparent... but I’m no pushover! I can see inside your energy field so you can’t get anything past me. We’ll always get straight to the root of your issue without you getting re-traumatized. I create such a safe container that you’ll feel secure sharing your vulnerable feelings and coming home to the powerhouse of a woman you truly are.

I’m concerned with getting your receiving channels open IN THE FASTEST HEALTHIEST WAY POSSIBLE, yet I'm never pushy. If you go too fast, you run the risk of shutting down and closing tighter. Too slow and you stay stuck. I help you find your own healthy pace that will get you the best results without retraumatizing you so you can STOP wasting time and leaking your energy and your power where it doesn’t belong.

We'll get you focused on doing HAPPINESS generating activities right away. You can be sure I will always be honest and respectful about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to transform it so you can start getting results in record time - and I throw in a healthy dose of humor, which helps to shine light through your dark times!

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

The Happy Woman Academy Programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and totally serious to get out of their rut, break through resistance, feel more loved and energized,
attract more money, feel healthier, and end what I call “the cycle of self sabotage” – it means not running around all day long, beating yourself up by saying, “I should be doing WAY better than this by now!”

These programs were created for you to put systems in place quickly, which will lead you to gain more confidence, practical real life skills, and finally attract more money and manifest the lifestyle of your dreams. That’s what I call HAPPINESS.

Being so dedicated to my own healing path, I’m known to work best with women who are committed to their success, who are super-ready to get going, and just want to know exactly what steps to take to create the shifts they want. My clients often tell me, “Just show me what to do and I’ll do it!”

Consider what you’ll do with me to be a relaxed yet energized course on every inner world strategy you need to know to succeed. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking & being, and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: Feeling powerful, happy, relaxed, safe, confident, worthy & prosperous, consistently and in record time.

For what type of women are your programs NOT going to work?

Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to lovingly turn away people who aren’t an ideal match for my programs and therefor wouldn't get the results they seek. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)

The Happy Woman Academy programs are NOT for those who are so raw and traumatized that they need immediate psychiatric care. It’s been my experience that people in extreme mental crisis need to get triage first and gain some stability before they are prepared to do higher levels of healing work.

Also, people who spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check need to work on securing survival skills before shifting into thrive level skills. If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Please do yourself (3) favors:

1.    Get some money coming in with a full-time or a part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your healing training assignments and the BIG picture. Once you start seeing yourself shift from survive to thrive mentality, you know you are gaining momentum and heading in the right direction.

2.    Go here: http://thehappywomanacademy.com/moneyvibe to get a FREE copy of my best-selling workbook, "Supercharge Your Money Vibe!" Then apply yourself to every single exercise in that book. The powerful information will get you started towards your money goals until you’re ready to work with me in a group program or one-on-one.

3.    Make a point to enter The Happy Woman Academy below &
join our private FB group, "HAPPY WOMAN," to soak up the healing practices and wisdom. All of this is my free gift to you.

Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our deep level of healing work. When you’re ready, apply to call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.)

Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are women who are commited to staying stuck, who consistently make excuses for not doing their healing assignments, and who refuse to trust the organic unfoldment and pace of the healing process. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not apply to speak with me and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money.

If all of this resonates with you, please apply for a Heal for Real call. I promise you'll get clear on what you need to release so you can make room to receive the massive happiness that is trying to get through to you.

Go ahead and apply here. The call is free.

"Elizabeth and her work have entirely changed my perspective on life and most importantly changed how I treat myself. She has taught me how to give myself the kindness and compassion I need, and helped me discover what true self-care feels like. By breaking my cycles of self-sabotage and self-abuse, I am now able to receive healthy love and support in all areas of my life. I am in a wonderfully loving and joyful marriage, and by reminding myself to put her tools deeper into practice this year, my career is the stuff my dreams are made of. I am often wary of guru-mentality and people who sell a bunch of bs. What I love about Elizabeth's work is there's a tangible, practical value and she walks her talk. She has helped me learn how to ask for what I need and trust my own wisdom. I can think of nothing more empowering and valuable than that."

C. S.

"I was experiencing a lack in my career, romantic life, and finances. I did not believe I was worthy to have what I truly desired nor did I know how it would be possible. After working with Elizabeth, I felt less attached to my issues and within a couple of months I could separate my issues from my Being and approach it all with more joy and more smarts. Through trying times at work and with job changes, I learned how to remain feminine and loving. For me The Happy Woman Academy is a place to seek strength, wisdom, skills, and love. I feel so safe there that I can open to share whatever is on my mind and remain vulnerable. This openness allows me to learn from other women as well as offer my heart to them. It’s a very powerful space that I believe all women yearn for in their lives. Be ready for change and ready to learn!"

A. H. 

"I came to the HWA over a year ago because I knew I needed help with my career.  I was afraid of asking for help because I didn’t want to be seen as annoying, demanding, or selfish. When I met with Elizabeth, I could sense a woman tapped into rivers that ran deep with understanding, maybe even deeper than I was familiar within myself. I had been coming from the stance that I must DO everything and MAKE things happen in my life, then one night, I let go for a moment and came to the realization that some situations I just can't do anything about it no matter how hard I want to. That was painfully humbling and intensely freeing. Even if you’re not at a crisis point, get in here. I had my first real life crisis after a year of being in HWA programs and I found myself equipped to handle it because I had practiced in milder climate."

There is a shift happening in society. The value of feminine energy is becoming recognized.  There is a shift happening inside of you.  As you own the massive value of your joy, intuition, playfulness, nurturance, care, wisdom, body, and abundance - not only do you receive more
Love, Health, & Money - 

I'm looking forward to speaking with you soon because you are awesome and about to get awesomer.
With Love, Elizabeth
