Announcement icon Social distancing can worsen depression, anxiety and overall feeling of isolation, but I am here to help you through these uncertain times.
As your therapist, I will help you share your story to better understand how it may be presenting problems for you in the present, as "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”(Maya Angelou). You may have patterns of handling relationships/situations & want to get unstuck from your usual patterns. We will practice new ways of thinking & doing in a non-judgmental and safe atmosphere. Whatever you are facing, I am here to help you through it. I have flexible hours to help people via telehealth, particularly for overwhelmed parents. I work around you/your child's hectic schedules.
My niche is to work with people who have a hard time connecting, have lost hope, or are just feeling stuck. I enjoy working with children, adolescents & adults, particularly with life transitions, depression, anxiety, Tourette and trauma. I have specialized training in trauma, selective mutism & Tourette disorder.
My therapy practice is called Lotus Psychology Practice, b/c I am inspired by the lotus flower. It grows out of the mud. Some get stuck in the mud and don't know how to get out of it. That is where I come in. Many people read these profiles, send an email, but then don’t follow up. I encourage you to take this step. I will be there with you for the next one.

Elana Rimler's Groups

Depression Support Group

Struggling with depression, anxiety or trauma? There has been a lot interest in this group as of late and I plan to hold the group virtually until we can meet in person. Please email me about your interest/availability so that I can create a group time that meets your needs. More information can be found at: www.lotuspsychologypractice.com please note that once the group has 6 clients, I can offer to scholarships so that the fee can be reduced significantly for two people who otherwise could not access care. This is never shared with other group members.

Misadventures in Parenting

Parenting is probably the hardest thing you will ever have to do! I am not just a psychologist with an expertise in parent training, but also a mom to 4 children. The struggle is real! This group will help you focus on practical strategies to implement to help you get a better grip on how to approach your children. This group is geared toward parents of children ages 3- 8.

More about this group

Tween Scene

While social skills is associated with interaction with peers in a group setting, we are charged with the task of thinking more flexibly in our new normal. With that, I would like to offer a social skills group for middle school kids. Parents are certainly concerned about the loss of social skills garnered during the school year. It is my aim to meet the needs of so many children who do not have the opportunity to readily practice interacting with peers with the support of a trained doctoral level psychologist. Please check out my website: www.lotuspsychologypractice.com for information.
