Hi, I’m Elisa.

I’m a Clinical Therapist at Health and Healing Therapy and I work with teens and adults 18 – 30 years old who are working through various wanted and unwanted transitions, changes, and challenges of life. I am grateful for the opportunity to help assist and support people as they are going through some of the most painful, unknown, and difficult times of their lives.

Therapy Approach

As a therapist, I aim to create a warm and inviting space where teens and adults alike can come as they are.

Through individual therapy, I help those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress and worry, grief and loss, figuring out who they are while embracing their identity, We can work to understand what thoughts, beliefs, feelings, responses, and reactions are helping you toward positive change that aligns with your values or if they move you farther away from your values which increases your distress and suffering.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in collaboration and authenticity. Together, we’ll work to uncover your strengths and develop personalized strategies to navigate life’s uncertainty.

I welcome you to step into this space where you will create the change you’ve been looking for and your healing can begin.

Beyond the therapy room, I find joy in new experiences with loved ones! Bowling, going to the movies, and attending concerts regularly, are my go-to activities.
