Dr. Elaine Collins

(PhD, MFT, LPCC)

About Me

Are you searching for meaning and harmony in your marriage or relationships? Are you suffering from anxiety after betrayal or loss? Do you fear starting over after a breakup, serious illness or loss?

Do you look in the mirror and wonder what happened to the person looking back at you? Where once was a vibrant, passionate, optimistic person looking back now seems low on energy, apathetic and lost as to purpose and what direction to go? You are not alone. Everyone goes through challenges in their life when what once felt comfortable now seems like total emotional chaos.

Hello, I’m Dr. Elaine Collins and I hold a PhD in Counseling Psychology and a Marriage Family Therapist License in the state of California. My specialty is on relieving stress, anxiety and strong emotions to life events through focusing on wellness and a holistic approach to healing the mind, body and soul.

If you are experiencing any of the above, it may be time to take a step back and pull the pieces apart and explore what you really want and lay out a life plan based on a new set of intentions. Exploring and changing some old beliefs and habits and learning how to be in control of your thoughts and emotions can create a new reality that brings you control over your decisions and your life as well as feelings of happiness and purpose.

It would be an honor to walk with you on your journey to find answers and the healing you seek to get back the life you want to live. I look forward to hearing from you.

Dr. Collins has been such a big help for me. I was a little skeptical of her use of Emotional Freedom Technique at first but now I am a huge fan. I would highly recommend Dr. Collins!

In the few sessions I have had with Dr. Collins I must say it has been very helpful to be able to speak to somebody about things that are going on.
