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 am passionate about providing support and guidance to individuals in various stages of life, particularly adolescents, young adults, and adults, as they navigate the complexities of life and transitions. My clinical focus encompasses a range of areas, including trauma, anxiety, OCD, body image, identity development, conflicts in peer and familial relationships, and perinatal mental health.
