Do you ever wish you could change your brain? Do you find yourself struggling with the same patterns in relationships that leave you feeling disconnected, anxious, and depressed? Elle uses a gentle and sometimes humorous approach with her knowledge of the brain and implicit memory to target root issues to promote lasting healing. This approach is called Interpersonal Neurobiology. You can learn more by visiting:
Elle is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Masters Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor and currently pursuing a specialization in Interpersonal Neurobiology. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from University of Central Florida and a Master’s Degree in Counseling-Psychology from Palm Beach Atlantic University. Elle is also certified by the Gottman Institute as a Gottman Leader and runs workshops based on ‘The Seven Principles to Make Marriage Work’ and ‘Bringing Baby Home’.

Take The Next Step
Anxiety can often look like inability to concentrate, social isolation, disordered eating, self-harm, substance abuse and even anger. Elle gets to the root of the emotions driving these behaviors, and helps adults 18+ find healthy ways of identifying and expressing emotions.
Are you struggling to feel close in your relationships? Do you wonder if your relationships are healthy? Elle can help clients find balance and fulfillment as individuals, while learning how to connect in the relationships that are most important to them.
Often times we start using a coping skill during times of high stress, and it works really well. Until it doesn't. These "coping skills" can turn into full-blown addictive behaviors that get away from us, and we need help finding balance again. Elle is an MLADC and enjoys helping clients get their lives back in balance
Childhood Emotional Neglect
A popular belief is “I should have had a traumatic childhood to need therapy.” They don’t understand their chronic feelings of emptiness, feeling “walled-off”, pervasive guilt and shame, and like like they don’t matter. Childhood emotional neglect is about what didn’t happen growing up-having their emotional needs tended to, often by well meaning and loving parents that simply didn’t know how.
