Dr. Elizabeth King is the CEO and founder of Suits, Stilettos and Lipstick, Inc and International Holistic Center and her 501c3, non-profit organization, the Women’s International Holistic Council. Although all three companies have distinct missions, they all work hand and hand to deliver the same message of good health, wellbeing, empowerment and hope. Dr. King, better known as "The Holistic Psychotherapist” is an internationally recognized wellness expert, hypnotherapist, radio-TV personality, motivational speaker, coach and author. She also serves as an adjunct professor at Nova Southeastern University. She is regarded by her peers as a leader and a visionary. Dr. King comes to holistic health and psychotherapy from a place of knowledge, understanding and compassion and brings these critical qualifications to her life’s work. She contracted polio in the Dominican Republic, her native country, at the age of 3 and since that young age has undergone 36 surgeries and many extensive periods of recovery. Despite these potential setbacks, she has never let anything stop her from achieving her professional or personal goals or from slowing her down in her mission to empower and educate others. Dr. King launched Suits, Stilettos and Lipstick® (SSL) because in her clinical private she saw a need for women to find balance, meaning and a sense of belonging. What started off as a women’s conference in 2012 has rapidly become a women’s movement with a database over 4,000 women. This year SSL launched its national expansion and recently opened up in W. Palm Beach, Miami and Chicago. SSL is slated to open up a SASSY Community in every major city within the next 5 years. Her book, “Dr. King’s Simple Guide to Holistic Health: Lessons Learned from My Personal Journey” is the book that she wished she would have had 8 years ago when she was bedridden for 2 years. She wrote the book to give people options and hope. International author and medical expert, Dr. Bernie Siegel writes “I credit Dr. King for being able to explain a complex topic in simple terms”. Her book can be found in English and Spanish in many bookstores and on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles Online. Dr. King hosted her own show for over 5 years “The Dr. Elizabeth King Show” (formerly known as The Dr. King’s Health Fusion Hour). The show has received global recognition because of the caliber of guests and information that she shared with her audience. Due to the expansion of SSL and her very busy speaking schedule, her show has temporarily been put on hold. Stay tuned for a big announcement in the near future. Dr. King holds a doctorate in Educational Leadership and a Master of Social Work degree. She has completed hundreds of hours of post graduate courses in the area of leadership and mental health. Dr. King loves God, family, making a difference, lipstick and the color red.
