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.

Great!

Written by H.O. on Mar 07, 2022 after therapy with Elaine for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

With just 3 sessions, Elaine has brought a new understanding to how I've been feeling which has been an eye opener for me. We're on the right track to discussing these issues and coming up with strategies to cope. It's a great start!

Written by L.A. on Jul 20, 2021 after therapy with Elaine for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Elaine has been extremely helpful while grieving and rebuilding after ending a long term relationship. She is attentive, actively listens, and asks challenging questions. I feel like I’ve grown so much in the few months we’ve been working together.

I really appreciate Elaine's attention. I feel that she asks great questions and provides great advice. Every time I finish a session with Elaine I feel more empowered, less anxious, and more centered. The worksheets she assigns have been very helpful!

I’ve tried 3 different therapists within the last 4 years and never felt like I found the right person. Since I joined BetterHelp and started working with Elaine I feel like this is finally it.

Work with me!
