OFFICE & HOME-BASED COUNSELING IN RALEIGH & SURROUNDING TRIANGLE AREA

COUNSELING. YOGA. MEDITATION.

 

HI, I'M ELISE

& I believe in Mindful Living

There are times in life where we all feel exposed... vulnerable... and unsure.  Life can seem scary, frustrating, hopeless, and chaotic.  We forget who we are or admit we don't know where we are going.  Life experiences and our mindset can stop us from living.  

 

My job as a mental health counselor is to serve as a guide during these difficult times. The support of another could be the key in unlocking a door you once thought was closed forever.  

 

I hold a graduate degree in Counseling Psychology and I am licensed through the North Carolina Board of Professional Counselors.  I combine my personal interest in art, music, and yoga with counseling interventions to integrate all aspects of human experiences: mind, body, and spirit.

 

I offer counseling services using expressive, cognitive behavioral, multiculturally aware, and skill based interventions to create stability for things we can change and yielding with flexibility to things we can not.

 

Learn to let go.  Start to live the life you were born to live—a mindful one.   

 

SERVICES

Elise uses evidence-based techniques to reduce discomfort in life. She works with clients struggling with a wide range of challenges, including, but not limited to:

  • mood disorders

  • anxiety

  • complications from prior trauma/hurt.

 

Sessions frequency varies based on need.

Coaching is also provided in the form of "Wellness Coaching" to invest your time wisely.  A personal "reset button" is developed via a written plan to cover multiple areas of wellness.  Weekly meetings with mid-week personalized accountability emails will be provided. There is an option to add phone calls for an additional fee.
