My Approach to Therapy 

Elena has extensive knowledge of conducting individual and couples counseling
She has done some foundational coursework and training in evidenced based Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT), CBT/DBT, Attachment Based Therapy and Systems Theory.

“I Offer a non-pathologizing approach to assist my clients in developing understanding and self-compassion towards maladaptive coping strategies and emotional pain.

I am committed in standing by your side on this most likely bumpy, but fulfilling journey to gain a better understanding of yourself and the people around you. I’ll help you relate to your inner experiences from a calm, mindful place where you become more accepting of the aspects of yourself with which you’ve been struggling.

I employ an integrative model and utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches in working with adult individuals, couples and families.”
