About

The clients I work with have oftentimes felt disenfranchised and misunderstood. They put forth amazing effort, but continue to struggle in finding a path out of cycles of survival, trauma, and scarcity. They are interested in their own growth and change across a variety of realms - relationships, family, identity, and purpose. They are open to self-reflection, even though it can be scary. Goals include: learning to be interdependent instead of people pleasing, finding a sense of self after a life of trauma, slowing cycles of self-harm & suicidal ideation, moving from self-loathing to peace, and navigating systemic violence.
I offer support through an attachment-based and trauma-informed lens. I have crafted specialties around LGBTQIA+ issues, particularly trans and gender-expansive client needs, as well as folks navigating complex trauma. I can offer an intentional relationship for my clients to explore the terrain you believe is important, and facilitate change you choose.
Finding the right clinician can be really difficult! My deepest hope is that clients find the person who is right for them at this moment. I offer a 30 minute phone consultation so we can decide together if what I offer fits what you seek. If my profile and website intrigue you, I hope to hear from you soon!

Elliot Townley's Groups

Creative Writing for Therapeutic Growth

Join us for a weekly group therapy experience using creative writing to practice self-expression, building insight, and challenging isolation. This group is for clients who are learning about or practicing vulnerability, clients who use metaphors to communicate their feelings, clients wanting to approach difficult topics creatively, and clients who want a regular creative practice but need structure to maintain it. This is a great way for isolated folks to get creative and build connection.
