The Journey toward Health and Happiness
Life’s journey is guaranteed to be full of bumps, twists, turns and sometimes treacherous landscapes that can leave us feeling lost, discouraged, or confused. Approaching a fork in the road and being unable to decide which way to turn can feel overwhelming and scary. Or worse, a wrong turn or two can land us at a dead-end - stuck with no path or options in sight. Whatever your life journey has been, you have found this website and are likely ready for a new path.
If you are struggling, feeling lost or alone, or are facing a stressful situation, you deserve professional support. In fact, finding a good therapist to support you through life's challenges can be one of the best decisions you make for yourself and your future. It is a sign of strength, and good self-care, to ask for help when needed.
As a therapist, I strive to listen to you fully and to offer empathy, compassion, and direction. Using a wide array of tools and expertise, I help clients overcome their current challenges and get back on track to create the lives they desire. When clients come to my office, they are met with a welcoming, casual, laid-back, and nonjudgmental atmosphere.
I would be honored to assist you on your life journey.
Elena and her newest therapy dog "Maya"
Research shows that many people feel
more comfortable opening up to a counselor
in the presence of a support animal.
"Tank" (an 11 year old black lab newfie) and
"Maya" (a 1 year old mixed breed) love coming to the office and sharing their unique blends of welcoming, loving, silly, and calm therapeutic presence in sessions.
All of Elena's dogs are rescued/shelter dogs who have known strife -- and are eager to embrace healing in themselves and in others.
