Most people experience stress and anxiety from time to time. Stress is any demand placed on your brain or physical body. You may feel stressed when multiple competing demands are placed on you, or when you are feeling frustrated or nervous. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, worry, or unease. It can be a reaction to stress or can occur even when you aren't able to identify significant stressors in your life.
If stress and anxiety are interfering with your daily life, let's work together! During your individualized counseling or coaching sessions, I will support you and teach you how to build the skills you need - including yoga, mindfulness, meditation, movement, creativity, grounding techniques - to discover more moments of peace & calm in your life. Accessible, e therapy and virtual yoga options are now available.
Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect all people. If you find that you are preoccupied with your body, food, weight loss, dieting, control of food, restriction or binging, it is time to seek help. As with eating disorders, body image concerns can affect us all. A negative body image involves a distorted perception of your size & shape. Negative body image/body dissatisfaction involves feelings of shame, anxiety, and self-consciousness. You may feel your body is flawed in comparison to others, and struggle with feelings of depression, isolation, low self-esteem, and eating disorders.
If you are struggling with disordered eating and/or body image concerns, it would be an honor to guide you on your counseling journey toward making peace with food and your body. Online therapy is now available as a safe, accessible tool to enhance your treatment options.

“Elisa has been instrumental in my family’s health in every way: body, mind and soul. She is an expert in eating disorders. For the last several years Elisa has worked with my daughter, providing her with mind, body and soul work including yoga, reiki, meditation and counseling. I truly believe Elisa was instrumental in my daughter’s journey from living a life with a life-threatening eating disorder to one as a happy, well-adjusted, thriving young woman. Elisa is a blessed gift to our family.”
“I sometimes eat when not hungry, and occasionally continue long after I am full. Several months ago, I would really beat myself up for it. Negative voices would fill my head leading to periods of depression, more overeating, and excruciating self-loathing. Each week when I have my counseling session with Elisa, I am able to speak with her openly and honestly about my week’s issues—food and un-food related. Elisa helps me find my way to the deepest root of the issue and provides mindfulness, meditation, yoga, cognitive solutions, as well as helping me to develop my very own kind, supportive voice in my head.”
