Written by J.U. on Jun 17, 2022 after therapy with Elena for 1 year and 11 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coaching, and compassion fatigue

My life wouldn't be improved without communicating with Dr. Felipe. What is amazing about her is her style of coaching. She doesn't give me quick answers, instead, she is sure to guide me on how to explore and generate my own answers to approach life. I have been taking her session for over 2 years and I am simply amazed by realizing my improved relationships. I have more meaningful communication with my parents, friends, and colleagues. In my day-to-day life, I feel less lonely and more fulfilled to strive. Thank you Dr. Felipe for your dedication to help us!

I have worked with Dr. Elena Felipe for a year and a half! She has helped me tremendously in processing and healing from past trauma, including my current challenges with romantic relationships, parents, and friends. I immediately felt comfortable and at ease speaking with her. Sessions with Elena always left me feeling lighter, empowered, and heard. Words cannot express how impactful and life-changing our conversations have been!

Written by K.A. on Jan 04, 2022 after therapy with Elena for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, grief, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Elena has changed my life. I cannot say enough great things about her and the support she has provided me over the last 1.5 years. I’ve been navigating everything from friend/family/romantic relationships, to LGBTQ+ topics, breakups, self esteem and general life changes - new job, etc. She has been a steadfast rock through all of it; providing a platform without judgement, and resources to guide me deeper into my own self discovery and personal growth. Thank you Elena!

Dr. Felipe is amazing, she is so supportive, encouraging and straight to the point. She both listens and gives advice where needed and helps to prompt you to understand and discover things yourself too. She really cares about you and is a dedicated therapist. She genuinely believes in all of the resources she’s given me e.g. she has read the books she’s recommended to me multiple times. This allows me to fully trust in her as she is well informed and goes above and beyond in ensuring you have all the support and information you need.

A couple of months into my therapy and I feel that I've met an individual that sees me and sees the life I've lived and the life I want to live. In Dr. Elena, I have confidence in my abilities, that I'm not off my rocker, but that there is something magical about me and that I deserve the space I am in. Dr. Elena has truly helped shape my approach to who I am and how I address my trauma, how I address my family, and how I set boundaries. Its been a joy working with Dr. Elena, there is still a lot more to unpack and talk about, but I am glad I have Dr. Elena in my corner.
