I have been a counselor for 18 years. I believe that counseling needs to be eclectic in order to best serve and support. I'm honored to have had rich clinical experience in Domestic Violence, Childhood Neglect and Dependence, Adoptions, Youth and Adult Developmental Disabilities, Additictions, Adolescent Conduct Disorder, Mental Health Disorders, and Veteran's Concerns.
Counseling must be tailored to the consumer and the counseling model must follow suit. I find that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) works well with most;however, I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Therapy for Depression (ITP-D), Mindfulness, and Narrative Therapy.
I am here to help my clients through current situational stressors or past trauma that impacts how they experience the world. Let's work together at your pace in order to create a meaningful today and joyful tomorrow!

Due to my experience with Elyse, I recommend BH all the time! She is one of the most important people in my life. I wish everyone could have an Elyse. She truly cares about me and shows it constantly. Her advice is always very on point. She came along at a time when I really needed someone like her, and I believe I will always benefit from our relationship.

Elyse has been a wonderful therapist, and has been very understanding. She made my transition to her as my new therapist very easy and comfortable. If I have any major issues I know I can message her and get a fairly quick response. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for help especially if they have a similar background to me.
