About me

Hello, my name is Elaine and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Wisconsin.

I have over 25 years of experience working as a counselor and practicing psychotherapy. I have worked in Public and private hospitals and small agencies.
My work has always focused on mental health. Clients' have carried diagnoses of depression/anxiety, as well as Bi-polar disorders and Schizophrenias. In addition I have counseled the elderly and physically disabled. But, I don't see people as labels. We all experience challenges in our life, and learning or re-learning new coping skills is what I like to do.

I would love to work with you, and watch you take back your life. I am an open and non-judgmental person. Clients' tell me I have a calming effect on them.
I have studied a variety of therapies including but not limited to; Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Humanistic, and Brief Family Therapy. I have incorporated this learning into my practice, which I call eclectic.

At its best, therapy has to do with the relationship between the therapist and the client. It is an evolving relationship that develops trust, compassion, empathy,
honesty and respect. This creates a safe place where positive changes can happen.

Therapy does not have to be heavy. Sometimes I laugh with my clients. I will however, never laugh at you, but I will always laugh with you.

I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Elaine Antin. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Elaine has completely changed my view on the effectiveness of therapy. I avoided therapy for years after a bad experience but she has completely changed my life. She validated me in a way no one has been able to and she understands my mental health and gives tips and advice that help my life improve tremendously. If you struggle with anxiety and depression and OCD I highly recommend Elaine.

Experience of listening and understanding what I am trying to express, while I am learning more about myself. Elaine has helped me become more self aware.
