About Me

My name is Marie Elanus and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Florida. I have many years of experience working with people of all age groups to overcome behavioral and emotional barriers. I provide individual, couples, family, and group counseling. My therapeutic approach is with compassion, care, and understanding. I love to serve my clients through diverse therapeutic techniques to gain insight into their behaviors. My goal as your therapist is to create a safe place where you feel open enough to be vulnerable and discuss your feelings, aspirations, and frustrations.

2020 has truly been a whirlwind for us all. Last year has magnified the everyday stressors. Stressors that may have manifested into anxiety or depression. Thank you for considering your mental health as a priority to seek support. I would love to work alongside you and empower you in accomplishing your goals.

Furthermore, I leave you with this quote, “What mental health needs are more sunlight, more candor, and more unashamed conversations.” – Glenn Close

Marie is an AMAZING therapist and I couldn't be more grateful for her. She helped me through a very rough time in my life and I don't know if I would've made it through without her. I can be a very negative thinker sometimes and she's truly aided me in viewing my life from a different perspective. This past year I was diagnosed with ADHD and she was able to provide me with extremely useful coping mechanisms. I'm so thankful for all she has done for me. Thank you so much Marie!

Marie and I worked together for over a year. We just had our last session today and honestly I cannot say enough great and nice things about her. Marie is by far one of the most attentive, thorough, and supportive therapists I have ever had. She really puts in a lot of time and effort into each session and takes detailed notes so that she can follow up to see how you are doing in each area. She is excellent at both holding you accountable and giving you the tools to do so yourself.

Our sessions were both challenging and encouraging, as Marie helped me own up to the hard truths we don't always want to hear, but she also helped me find my inner strength to embark on the path to self improvement. If you want a therapist that is all about dedication, positivity, accountability, self improvement, and teaching people to be self reliant, then Marie is the therapist you should choose. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

10/10 experience for me!
