With over 15 years of experience, Elida has assisted many clients in overcoming a variety of challenges and achieving greater emotional wellness.
One of Elida's areas of expertise is Medical Family Therapy, which involves helping clients and families manage the effects of illness on their lives. She understands that illness can be a significant source of stress and anxiety, not just for the person experiencing it, but also for their loved ones. That's why Elida offers specialized care to help clients and families cope with the emotional and practical challenges of health issues. She provides a safe and supportive environment where clients can explore their feelings, fears, and hopes for the future.
In her practice, Elida utilizes Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, two evidence-based approaches that help clients make positive changes in their lives. Narrative Therapy allows clients to explore and understand the unique stories and experiences that have shaped their lives, empowering them to reclaim their sense of agency and purpose. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps clients identify and modify negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be holding them back from achieving their goals.
Elida's approach to therapy is highly personalized, and she tailors her techniques to each client's unique needs and preferences.
