Hello! My name is Elise and I have a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Brandeis and a Master’s in Social Work from Yeshiva’s Wurzweiler School. I’ve been an independently licensed social worker for over 25 years.
During this time I’ve helped many people seeking support for all sorts of reasons. Maybe you are a single parent or your family lives far away. Or you are facing midlife challenges and want the chance to get more from your life. I also work with young adults striving to deepen their connection with friends and family and looking to choose meaningful work and partners. Some struggle to balance their own needs with their children, home and work lives.
Some of my clients struggle with anxiety, depression, disabilities or difficult life circumstances. Regardless of your age and circumstances I use a person centered approach to care, where I listen and ask you questions to help you find words for your circumstances. I have psychodynamic and family systems frameworks that I draw from as well as practical tools to offer you in our work.
You will find my approach warm, insightful as well as practical gleaned from my own 17 years as a parent and 27 years as a social worker. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Elise Jacobson. 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.
Elise is excellent at staying on point and recalling everything we have spoken about to bring points home.
My first time ever meeting with someone to open up. I couldn't recommend Elise more! She has made me feel so comfortable and supported so quickly. She is so warm and initiative and truly is the best listener. I can't thank her enough for just what a few weeks has already done for me.
Elise really takes the time to talk through all of your concerns and look at them from different angles. She responds really quickly to any communication. Elise has been easy to open up to and so supportive in working through different obstacles.
I am so glad that I have found Elise! I have never connected to a therapist the way I have with Elise. She makes herself available through the chat if I need to reach out. I would highly recommend her!
Working with Elise has been the best thing I've done for myself in a long time. She is exceptionally skilled. A great listener, helps me to look at things from different perspectives and I'm just grateful for her.
Elise has been wonderful, caring, understanding and helpful in my therapy journey so far!
I’ve only been working with Elise for a short time but she has made me feel so comfortable to open up and always gives me great/insightful feedback. She’s already started challenging me to think about my experiences in different ways/perspectives.
Elise is the best therapist I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. She provides me with the support I need in a kind and thoughtful way. I feel very lucky to have been connected with her!
Elise has been amazing and like an angel coming into my life and helped me feel like myself again. After even just one session I already felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. She sent questions to fill out ahead of time which helped shape our first session. She was well prepared she is thoughtful in her comments and guidance. I would highly recommend Elise.
Elise just keeps on getting better and better. Every week I gain a new perspective on my anxiety and life, which has helped me tremendously. I love her style and expertise of therapy and I think that’s what has helped create such a strong relationship.
Elise, you are wonderful. You met me where I needed to be met and guided me thru a difficult time with my anger issues. I am grateful to have your insight and knowledge, and am thrilled with the strides I am making under your guidance. Thank you!
Elise was an amazing counselor to work with. The discussions and exercises that we completed helped to shine light on the things that weren't working and those that did. It's still a journey, but I feel more validated as an individual.
I have not had many sessions with Elise however in the time I’ve spent talking to her I definitely feel like she is an intelligent, kind and patient counselor and I’m very excited to have her help and advice as I move on from a very difficult time in my life.
Elise has been such a blessing. I went through several counselors to find her and I'm so glad I didn't give up on my search. She has a very warm, friendly, honest approach that resonates with me, and she truly cares. Having her support has helped me in many ways and gives me a stability I needed. She is a brilliant counselor, listener, supporter. She always wants to understand things fully and at the same time is very willing to pivot topics as they arise in life. I would recommend her to anyone and am grateful for her work.
Elise is amazing. Listens and gets it. She compassionate and doesn’t take long to pick
Up on behaviors that need to be looked at. She literally has changed my life.
Elise is kind, thoughtful, wise and professional. We have a general plan of what we are working towards, though Elise is flexible as crises have come up and willing to redirect our work to deal with whatever is causing my stress at the moment. She follows up our weekly conversations with messages during the week to check in and see how I’m doing.
I’ve enjoyed building a supportive relationship with Elise and strongly rely on her as one of the foundations in maintaining my mental health and well being.
Elise is very easy to talk with.
She greatly helped me to better understand myself and my situation and helped me move forward through my life. I am eternally grateful.
Elise does a really great job of listening to my concerns and validating them. She truly understands what I'm trying to say. Also, she gives me things to think about that I hadn't thought about. She's very understanding and responds to me in a very timely manner!
