In Elissa's Words

"Finding a counselor can quickly begin to feel overwhelming, especially when you or your child are in the midst of a transition, struggling socially, or having difficulty with depression or anxiety. Having over 10 years of experience with adolescents and adults, I provide individualized services that will allow you the space to explore both your growth areas, as well as your strengths while feeling seen, heard, and validated. I offer both afternoon and weekend appointments, perfect for the busy schedule. 


Our experiences and difficulties in life often lead to anxiety, depression, anger, and behavioral issues. To identify thoughts, acknowledge feelings, address behaviors, and promote inner-peace, I utilize an integrated therapy model. This includes trauma-informed care, dialectical interventions, Narrative skills, and mindfulness strategies. Taking the first step toward support can feel difficult, but the rewards for you can be endless."
