“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Mark Twain
The quote was shared with years ago and to date, I can confidently say, that I do what I do because it’s not “work”, it’s a pleasure and an honor that I can hold space and provide a safe non-judgmental environment ear for you. I love what I do and I am motivated seeing my clients empowered to do what they thought they couldn’t. I am thrilled when couples leave sessions with a bounce in their steps and hope to continue their marital journey.
I have been a therapist for the past 20 years, married for 29 years to the love of my life, Elvis; and together we own and run Elpizo Counselling Services Elpizo Training & Consultancy and Elpizo Community Connect (a non-profit). I am trained and qualified in various modalities and interventions including but not limited to Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), Imagery Rescripting and Reprocessing Therapy (IRRT) Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Mindfulness, Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), Multi-Modal Therapy (MMT), Well Formed Outcome, Prepare Enrich.
As a Trauma Specialist I work with individuals that have experienced childhood trauma, emotional deprivation, abuse, PTSD, simple and complex traumas. As a registered psychotherapist, I cherish the opportunity to assist anyone through providing genuine, empathetic and caring support whilst gently challenging clients to having a new way of thinking that will be to their best advantage. When not working, I love to travel and exploring new adventures, spending time with my family and friends, or curled up in bed watching Hallmark or reading a good book.
