Are you seeking a more direct therapist who won't "beat around the bush"? Look no further!

I bring authenticity into my work.  I am a therapist known to take a direct but warm and collaborative approach with my clients.  Often bringing humor into my sessions, I take the time to get to know each individual and couple on a deeper level.  Each session is specifically tailored to my clients and their needs, using a collaborative approach; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Complex Trauma, Shame-informed care, Gottman and Imago. 

At Therapy By Ellisa, I prioritize your emotional well-being while providing tailored treatment plans to fit each individual's personal needs. With my fashion-forward style, I aim to provide a unique and refreshing approach to traditional therapy.

Over 14 years of experience in the field of community mental health has given me the tools to properly assist both individuals and couples.  I use a "whole person" approach, offering coping strategies, conflict resolution and reflective listening skills to better diffuse emotional distress in both individual and couples work. 

The foundation of my work includes Reflective Listening Skills, Trauma & Shame-informed care as well as goal-oriented sessions. I want to make sure my clients understand why they entered into therapy and have goals they are clearly working toward. I assign homework so clients can practice at home what we're working on in our sessions. I want my clients to get their money's worth. 

I am down to earth, animated and creative in my sessions. I use props, role play, activities and creative means to help clarify theory and help you reach your goals. I strongly believe "just listening" or "talk therapy" is not enough. I consider myself a skills based therapist, not a traditional "Talk Therapist". 


Change is possible and with the right amount of support and

guidance, you can take the necessary steps to have a healthier life.
