Professional statement

Elise Hall is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Providence, RI who specializes in trauma, anxiety and panic disorders, college student’s mental health, and life transitions. 

When seeing clients for anxiety, Elise uses a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach, which incorporates breathing, relaxation, and other skills and strategies that can help individuals function in their daily lives and social situations. 

With her trauma work, Elise utilizes exposure therapy; she has advanced training in this evidence-based approach. She also uses Cognitive Processing Therapy. She welcomes those who have a history of sexual assault or traumatic history, to help process what happened and how it's shaped their view of the world, themselves, and their overall safety. 

Elise enjoys working with adults and young adults who are motivated to heal, and ready to engage in therapy. She looks forward to supporting you on this journey.

Message to clients

Have you been feeling frustrated with the direction of your life, unsatisfied in your personal relationships, or inexplicably angry? Do you feel like you put everyone else’s needs before your own and struggle to find time for yourself? You’ve tried all the usual things – talking to friends/family, exercising, maybe even therapy – but nothing seems to work. 

If this sounds like you, I’d love to talk. My passion is helping people recover from traumatic events, improve their moods and self-esteem, and develop lives they love. 

Many times I hear from clients that their experience in therapy was just checking in about their week, and it left them feeling like they weren't making a lot of progress. My approach is to help you identify your needs, apply research-backed treatments, and make sure to regularly assess whether we are on track and that you're meeting your goals. 

Adding another appointment to your schedule might sound overwhelming; however, my clients often tell me how much they get out of having one hour a week dedicated completely to them. 

If you feel like any of this applies to you, I do hope you reach out – I would love to work with you.
