Elise specializes in meeting with adolescents (ages 7 and older) and their families. She advocates an integrative holistic approach tailored to meet the individual mental, physical, and spiritual needs of her clients.
Elise believes that problems often stem from having an unmet core need and is passionate about working with people to evaluate the current techniques they are using to achieve their need and then helping them discover a more effective method.
Elise teaches communication skills, positive coping skills, relaxation techniques, and approaches for reframing negative thinking into positive thinking. She provides a safe and nonjudgmental environment but also holds her clients accountable, encouraging them to make changes outside the office.
