I am passionate about supporting people to quickly move through psychological blocks that create stress and stop the flow of creative, productive energy. I focus on facilitating freedom from anxiety and depression created by past experiences, opening the mind to what is present and possible, instead of old and no longer useful. I work extensively with the therapeutic technique known as EMDR, which is clinically proven to be an effective treatment for Anxiety/Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am an EMDRIA approved Consultant and a Trainer for the Trauma Recovery Humanitarian Assistance Program. www.emdrhap.org

In particular, I specialize in working with: survivors of trauma , LGBTQI community, neurodivergent community, young adults, social justice activists, and artists.
I deeply believe in our innate capacity, as humans, to heal, and I hold great reverence for the creative wisdom and resilience of the people I accompany in this work. My clinical approach is rooted in relational psychodynamic and politicized somatic lineages. I work intuitively and collaboratively, bringing a holistic and compassionate approach to the unique nature of each therapeutic relationship, supporting clients in building upon their wise and adaptive capacities with greater self-knowledge, compassion and support. I attune to the ways each of us is dialectically shaped by, and shaping, the conditions of the world around us.

My specialties are racial identity development, trauma , depression and anxiety.
When you've decided to get help, seeking a psychologist you feel comfortable with is as important as their skill and training. If I'm so honored to have you as my client, you'll find I utilize an integrated approach; a mix of gentle yet direct communication, mindfulness, cultural dynamics including family systems, psychoeducation, skill building using cognitive behavioral techniques, and of course explorative questions that help to uncover the emotional obstacles to your healing and progression in life.

I specialize in working with adults dealing with loss, stress and trauma and with couples with communication and intimacy concerns.
My clients are most often dealing with communication concerns, issues of intimacy and complications related to life changes. When traumatic events impact their daily lives, they may seek assistance. Occasionally couples and families experiencing stress in their relationships may need an objective listener and guide to help them figure out how to reestablish balance. With the many demands of life and work, we work together to find pleasure in their families and for parents to reinstate parental authority within the family structure.

I am a survivor of depression, and the trauma of living in this world as a gay man.
Life has its ups and downs, ins and outs, mountains, plateaus, and valleys, and sometimes you just need someone to talk to. Is it a loss, feeling anxious, depressed, unaccepted, overwhelmed or fragile. Are some of these things holding you back? Together we can learn coping skills, healthy ways of living, and how to move forward in your life. I use a compassionate, non- judgmental, understanding, strength based approach by acknowledging and welcoming your whole person, body, mind, and spirit.

Do you find yourself on edge much of the day? Does it feel like you can never let your guard down? Many people become overwhelmed out in the world, or with life in general. They may begin to see things as hopeless. I work with people who have gotten to this point, and think it can’t get better. However, I believe everyone can find, and create, a life worth living. I help people struggling with anxiety, trauma , thoughts of suicide, and related challenges. No one deserves to live in fear, or with misery caused by the past. With the right support, you can turn the most difficult parts of your life into a future you can look forward to.

For individuals and couples alike, Elissa utilizes an attachment-focused, trauma -informed perspective to help clients improve their relationships with themselves, their intimate partners, and their families.
I have 35+ years of experience working with individuals and couples who seek therapy for a variety of reasons, ranging from long-standing issues that were never fully resolved to situational ones that require immediate attention. I tailor my approach to what is needed in each case but believe that a good working relationship is at the heart of a successful psychotherapy. Creating a space that allows for a better understanding of whatever causes pain, anxiety, doubt, self-defeating or destructive behaviors that get in the way of a fulfilling life is my aim and creates the foundation for change.
