Hi there.  I am Elissa. I am a mature and caring therapist who is also a mom.

Summary

We are a group of therapists who are friendly, warm and very genuine though we are goal directed.  We work collaboratively with clients to set up and monitor progress on measurable objectives in therapy.  We take an ethical view that being real and authentic with our clients allows them to make the best choice, to feel safe and to grow. The clinic head has over 24 years of experience in therapy practice and supervision with a doctoral degree and we often work collaboratively to strengthen our practice.

We offer video sessions and some in person at 600 Sherbourne St and 489 College West.
