11 years of experience

Hello! My name is Elaine and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I I hold the strong belief that people are perfectly imperfect. They are capable of reaching their full potential, but can also become stuck, unhappy and unable to live a fulfilling life. That’s where I come in. I will work with you to help you heal from within. My specialties include: working with parents who have a child with special needs, LGBTQ+ issues, and grief. I know you are tired of not feeling like yourself. You deserve to start feeling good again.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Clients can expect to get a better understanding of themselves and the issues they are experiencing. Why is this important? The more we understand the underlying causes of what’s driving our symptoms, the better we can help manage and alleviate the issues that bring us to therapy. Clients can also expect to learn more effective ways of managing the issues that they face.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I tend to utilize a combination of psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques. I also have experience with behavior modification when working with parents who have a child with challenging behaviors.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strengths include meeting clients where they are, and creating a safe space for everyone who comes through my "virtual door". My priority is to make clients feel safe and comfortable. I take a more down to earth, nonjudgmental approach to help clients feel safe in sharing their experiences with me.
