Thank you for taking the time to learn more about how I may be able to help you. Call me "Elana" please. Through experience, I have been able to help individuals overcome the overwhelm of "life" stressors, anxiety, depression, relationship patterns and move forward to a MUCH better "place" in life. My style is very natural, conversational, engaging, attentive, and warm (according to what past clients have said). I combine several techniques to create a very solution-based approach. Using my counseling style, and experience, I want to get you to the point of thriving (not just surviving).
I started working in the mental health field in 1997. Since that time, I have held various roles as a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, manager, and agency director. Decades in at this point, and I still love being a part of people changing their lives for the better.
Clients over the years have described me as "you keep it real," warm, honest, trustworthy, genuine, transparent, humorous, a teacher, and able to quickly move them forward. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. I look forward to working alongside you as you change and grow. I’ve learned that the real change happens in between each session, so I enjoy teaching skills and strategies for you to practice; building upon your successes to reach your goal.
As I work with individuals, each person is wonderfully unique and requires your own unique approach. So, I don’t box anyone into a specific approach. – you are unique Working from the frameworks of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Solution-Focused Therapy, I create a therapeutic approach that is right for YOU. I am person-centered.
I look forward to working with you.
