Welcome, I’m Elaine a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), based in North Carolina, I’m also licensed to practice in Ohio. Counseling should be a conversation in a private, peaceful setting where you can explore issues that are impacting your life. In a private, peaceful, therapeutic environment I will listen to you without judgment, provide support, insight and feedback to help you address current or long standing issues that are impacting your life and possibly interfering with your emotional well-being. I have over 20 years experience working with individual and families to address mood instability, depression, anxiety, personal trauma, grief/loss, interpersonal problems, chronic illness and substance abuse. I specialize in working with adults from a holistic perspective providing individual counseling using diverse therapeutic modalities. I believe that therapy works best when there is a commitment to attend regular scheduled therapy session. I believe that individuals are resilient and have the capacity to heal from within. I believe in creating pathways for positive change. I believe “ life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learn to dance in the rain”.

I have been supporting individuals just like you for over 12 years. I am committed to helping people learn how to live their BEST LIVES! My practice focuses on targeting ANYTHING that stands in your way of functioning as your BEST self. I believe in taking a holistic and collaborative approach. This means we work together, as a team to improve your whole life-not just your mental or emotional health. I am a seeker, so I am ALWAYS looking for new ways through research, evidence-based practices, and new educational opportunities to be of service to those looking for support. The face of someone who looks for support... looks like mine. Sometimes it's struggling with anxiety or depression. Or maybe diabetes and the toll the management of the disease takes on your life. It could also look like a teen looking for direction at school or navigating the world into young adulthood. Or a couple on the brink of calling it quits because of financial stress. It could look like someone who has lost their job or home and turned to Alcohol or something else to ease the pain. Or someone who just can't shake things they may or may not label as TRAUMA in their lives. More important than any of these situations, is the question: HOW DO WE REGAIN CONTROL OVER OUR HAPPINESS AND OUR LIVES? This is precisely what our goal is- find a plan to answer this question. There are multiple ways we can go about finding this answer, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EFT (TAPPING) EMDR, Mindfulness-based modalities, Motivational Interviewing and, more. If you are interested in discovering which method will be effective for us to use, please schedule an appointment and we will get started laying the path together!

Greetings! I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) and have worked with offenders, anger management clients, couples, teens and adults struggling with ADHD, anxiety and depression. Through a strengths based approach, my clients learn more about themselves thus improving self-confidence, communication, mood and overall outlook on life. I love serving my teen and couples clients via the Gallup strengths test. This test helps individuals understand where their energy is highest and what they value most. It's not about "strengths", but values. I believe one of the best things we can do for ourselves is take the time to truly understand ourselves as this helps us learn to communicate effectively, be productive, overcome procrastination and more. This is one tool of many I enjoy using to help my clients.

In 2001, Dr. Trauth began working in substance abuse dependency counseling in inner city Lexington, KY, while working on his MSW at the University of Kentucky. He completed his Doctorate in Counseling at the University of Cincinnati in 2016. Dr. Trauth traveled to El Salvador and to Nicaragua to help build water filtration systems and malaria-proofing latrines while also being introduced to permaculture techniques for third-world country applications. Dr. Trauth worked three years at the Clermont Recovery Center in Batavia, Ohio, with adolescents incorporating therapy through gardening. He then brought the ideas learned in horticulture therapy to clients and families at Lighthouse Youth Services where he worked as a social worker and clinical supervisor. Last year he completed his 72 hour permaculture certification. More recently at St. Leo the Great parish, Dr. Trauth began working with the Burundian refugee population. These refugees requested his help in obtaining land for farming so they could grow their own food. Observable outcomes that have had a significant impact on these refugees include community integration, self-efficacy, self-sufficiency, increase in business knowledge, opportunities for physical exercise for all ages, and a collaboration with different organizations focused on the creation and sustainability of a refugee garden.

Graduating in 2012, I have met with many hundreds of individuals, couples and families using a myriad of different methodologies. What I have learned is that the best way to help a client is to let go of anything you ever learned and connect with the person individual in front of you, not as a client but as a person. In addition, I take a highly biased and slanted bent towards your strengths and qualities with an unhidden agenda of manifesting your individual core beauty. In other words, this is a highly individual journey and the key to enjoying it is through highly colored lenses of your inexhaustible array of qualities. All methodology and techniques fall to the wayside.

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) who obtained my master's degree in social work (MSW) from the University of Connecticut in 2013. I started my career in child welfare and animal assisted therapy, and now work with adults ranging from college age to geriatric. The main focus of my practice is in ADHD, as an ADHDer myself, I have a great deal of lived experience as well as training and knowledge on the most recent research. We are learning more and more that ADHD Is not a disorder, but rather another type of brain, and while functioning can be affected (and often is), there is so much potential to be found, and with the right information and guidance, your ADHD brain can thrive! I can be a space for you to process what it means to be ADHD, how it has affected your life, (for good and for bad), and how you can move forward coming from a place of strength and and knowledge.

At our sessions I take notes that I give to you at the end of our sessions, so you have have something tangible to take with you, as well as links to resources such as podcasts, books, take home exercises (never mandatory though!) to help you progress in between sessions to make our time together more valuable. I used to be in direct service many years ago and then moved into training EAP providers and offering trainings for Mental Health providers to maintain their licenses, but during the, "Great Hiatus," I saw that people needed help. So I came back to be in the trenches. You are in good hands! I am also a student of positive psychology, but I have the ability to empathize deeply and really be right there with you.
