A Note From Elia

My goal is to create a safe, affirming, and non-judgmental space where you can show
up exactly as you are. By building a strong and trusting client/therapist connection, we
will grow in this process together.

Why I am Becoming a Therapist

I am becoming a therapist because I believe in your journey toward self-discovery, understanding, and healing. From first-hand experience, I understand how powerful it can be to have someone supporting and encouraging you to achieve your goals in becoming your best and most authentic self. I am hopeful that I can be that someone for you.

What I am Passionate About


I have a committed interest in working with adolescents, college students, young adults,
and new parents as they navigate life's developmental challenges and transitions. Areas
of clinical interest include anxiety, social media pressures, body image, identity
development, peer and familial relationship conflict, and perinatal mental health.
