Elise is passionate about working with couples in marriage and relationships, trauma, and attachment issues between parents and child (including reactive attachment disorder). Self-esteem and body image concerns, particularly with women, mindfulness and mind/body interventions for wellness are also important in her work. She is skilled at working with eating concerns, sexual identity and orientation, grief, anxiety, and depression. Her approach and interventions are tailored to each client’s individual needs and treatment goals, utilizing mindfulness and holistic integrative care, combined with various forms of cognitive therapy.
Elise has a registered Therapy Dog, Nox, who serves as her co-therapist in sessions when appropriate. Therapy animals have been shown to reduce anxiety and facilitate expression of emotion in many clients, both child and adult. Nox is only present when the client feels comfortable with the idea.
