He also has expertise in working with clients recovering from addiction and is currently in advanced training in addictions and compulsions at the William Alanson White Institute. 

Elliot’s encourages clients to reflect on their inner desires, impulses, and beliefs. He strives to help clients see habitual patterns of handling emotions or getting needs met, patterns that may have been adaptive earlier in life but no longer work well.

Message to clients

Our first meeting will last approximately 60-90 minutes and is free of charge; it gives us a chance to decide whether we want to work together. We will discuss the issues that have led to you seek assistance, your past history, current life status and treatment goals. By the end of this meeting, my goal is provide you with a sense of whether we work well together and how I may be able to help.

My work focuses on helping patients feel more at peace with their emotional experience and to figure out areas where they are blocked. I help people deal with life transitions, stress, depression, and anxiety, as well as helping them see habitual patterns of handling emotions, or getting needs met, that may have been adaptive earlier in life but no longer work well. In my practice, mapping one’s history is important, especially in the way it shines a light on your unique needs and challenges, helping us to identify the patterns that impede you reaching your goals.

Everyone has strengths and vulnerabilities that need to be understood for there to be realistic change. My process combines my training in psychoanalysis as well as cognitive behavioral therapies in order to help you figure out how to thrive in your life. I create a safe space for you to speak and think freely, encouraging a sense of agency and resilience.

If this sounds right for you, I look forward to your call. Thank you.
