Elissa Stifter, LPCC

As a practicing therapist and mindfulness practitioner for 15 years, I incorporate both traditional and innovative methods to help you overcome life’s challenges and embrace your potential. Through the process of healing, we address underlying issues and discover a sense of meaning and peace far greater than before these symptoms began to rule our lives. As a result, we can experience joy and strength beyond what we ever imagined.

All of my methods are Evidence-Based Practices; in other words, they have been proven by research. In working with individuals, I specialize in depression, anxiety, trauma, relationships, and emotional regulation. I also have extensive experience working with chemical dependency, substance abuse/dependence, and addictions of all kinds. Many clients also seek help for a stage of life transitions, often during young adulthood when social expectations are at their highest and roles begin to change or during middle-age regarding new demands in career, child-rearing and long-term relationships. I aid in helping clients to develop an optimal life experience in whatever stage of life or circumstance in which clients find themselves. I look forward to helping you or someone you love.

How I Work

Many clients also seek help for stage of life transitions, often during young adulthood when social expectations are at their highest and roles begin to change or during middle-age regarding new demands in career, child-rearing and long-term relationships. I aid in helping clients to develop an optimal life experience in whatever stage of life or circumstance in which clients find themselves.

In working with couples, I emphasize the dynamic influences that each member has on each other and how this creates patterns that may lead members to feel stuck. When each member takes responsibility for his or her contribution to the relationship, a transformation begins. In work with couples, we address breakdowns in communication and barriers that lead to misunderstanding and hurtI look forward to helping you or someone you love.
