Professional statement

Jeannie Elder is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in working with creative individuals, including actors, singers, authors and other artists, members of the LGBTQIA community, and individuals with an eating disorder, including bulimia, anorexia, and binge eating. She also has extensive experience in treating anxiety, depression, and sexual harassment and assault.

Jeannie takes an eclectic approach that utilizes elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness practices, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Relational Therapy. She is also a practitioner of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Jeannie believes in helping clients make behavioral changes while also exploring the root of these issues and where they stem from. She takes a collaborative approach, frequently working closely with nutritionists and psychiatrists, to ensure all of her clients’ needs are being met.

Jeannie provides a safe space where her clients can feel comfortable sharing their most intimate feelings and fears. She has received training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, including completing a two-year comprehensive eating disorder program and a program geared towards working with LGBTQIA clients.

Message to clients

It can be incredibly helpful to have someone in your life to whom you can say absolutely anything without fear of repercussion – being accepted exactly as you are will help you to embrace yourself. I believe that together, with the right tools, we can work through anything, and help you move towards a future in which you experience more confidence, ease and joy.
