I also specialize in the prenatal and postpartum period, counseling women and their partners who are struggling with infertility, a physically or emotionally challenging pregnancy, a difficult postpartum transition, or loss of a baby.
I have always been attracted to both ends of life's spectrum, birth and death. My work centers around the grief we experience in life, whether over the death of someone we love, the loss of a relationship, or an ending in a chapter of our lives. Our work together is based on a mindful, cognitive behavioral approach, as we gently explore the connection between your emotions and the thoughts behind them. I help you process your grief the way you need to do it and guide you as you find your way back to yourself.

I'm a spunky woman with playful humor, someone who understands and who has a lot of compassion.
I love working with couples as well as individuals interested in hike or nature-based therapy. From our very first session you will take home practical tools for both communication and relaxation. In moments of stress, you will have less blaming ways to express what you need to keep things from escalating. For those times when you do lose your cool, you will know more about calming yourself down before saying something you regret. I'll help you learn to be kinder to yourself, to be aware of how you talk to yourself. For starters, don't believe everything you think!

After encountering my mental health challenges, I knew I wanted to help other women experiencing similar challenges.
It feels like everything is falling apart. Difficult feelings cloud your days, but you don't even know if you have the energy to do anything about it. You can't stop worrying, you can't slow down, & you are overwhelmed trying to manage everything making it hard to find the joy in your life. Sometimes you cry for no reason, & everything feels so heavy. Sometimes barely recognize yourself & wonder if things will ever return to normal. You're ready for some relief from this weight pulling you down, but you are not sure how it's possible or where to start. Sometimes you want to quit. I get it; I lived it. Hi, I'm Elisa & want to help.

For over 30 years I have had the honor of working with individuals, couples, and families. My ideal client are ages 18 years of age through late-adulthood. They are seeking a safe place to talk about current issues in their lives. Many are going through a life transition such as attending college, starting a new job, going thru a separation or divorce, loss through death, etc. My goal is to join you as a guest "on your path" as you discover your inner resources, set personal goals, develop coping and communication skills. I enjoy supporting women as they navigate life's currents and flourishing as they grow older!

I enjoy supporting women and couples through pregnancy, birth, and the parenting journey.
There are many reasons people seek therapy. Most likely, you're here because you're feeling out of balance in some aspect of your life. You may be looking for better ways to cope with depression or anxiety, change patterns that lead to unhealthy behaviors or relationships, or heal from a difficult or traumatic experience. Therapy can help you gain insight about yourself, increase your sense of confidence, or help you explore a new life path with courage and intention. My hope is to provide support, tools, and encouragement to help you find greater balance, authenticity, and overall well-being.

My focus- trauma, Highly Sensitive People, anxiety syndromes, Misophonia & mind-body syndromes also known as Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) - chronic pain, IBS, Fibromyalgia, fatigue, female pelvic pain such as Vulvodynia.
I understand what it's like to live life ruled by devastating chronic pain and illness, terrible anxiety, and being highly sensitive that you feel everything! I help people resolve chronic pain, anxiety, sadness, and trauma. Connecting the dots to understand how your childhood (upbringing, trauma, stressful events, family) may be contributing to your mental distress today can be extremely eye opening and transformative. Healing and becoming a secure capable human is the goal and completely attainable! I view therapy as a collaboration and as a Mind-Body Therapist I am an active participant and guide.

I work with PTSD in women , victims of crime and rape, loss and grief, the other silent life-robbing experiences that live on long after the trauma is over.
I believe our mind & body are completely intertwined. I believe there are limitless possibilities within every human being. You are not your symptoms. I do not believe in limits set by a diagnosis or label for you to identify yourself by, instead I help you find your true nature, your Self, & peace within in the midst of difficulty, change, loss, - life! I've been a psychologist for over 25 years, yet the way I help people today is entirely different than a decade ago. Today I help adults using brain-based talk therapy & mindfulness, using an integrated approach to emotional wellness by focusing on your whole self and life today.

Are you or a family member feeling anxious or depressed? COVID has changed many people's lives and change can increase anxiety or depression. I offer "telecare" where you may attend video conference sessions via Zoom on your smart phone or computer from the comfort of your home. Therapy with someone you trust is a powerful tool for creating and maintaining emotional health. It is possible to gain insight and learn new ways of finding happiness and relief. I am not judgmental and understand that we generally do the best we can, which sometimes is not as great as other times. Change is possible with the help of a caring therapist.

The decision to pursue counseling is an extremely important and personal one. And, finding the right therapist is a crucial part of the process. I have been practicing in the field over 25 years and have worked in a variety of settings with adults and adolescents. In addition to having extensive experience in helping those who have suffered grief and loss, I am particularly skilled at working with highly sensitive individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, interpersonal relationships, developmental issues, and identifying, understanding, and changing repetitive patterns that do not serve them.

What type of Ventura mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ventura?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
