Overview

Hi, I'm Elijah, but you can call me Eli! As a transgender man, I understand the importance of having a gender- affirming therapist. I provide an inclusive space for anyone in the LGBTQIA+ community who needs a safe and understanding place to be heard. I specialize in talk-based therapy and CBT to help with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, and the everyday struggles that come with being a part of the LGTBQIA+ community. My goal is to help individuals tap into their natural support systems and develop positive coping skills to thrive in their day-to-day activities.

With over 2 years of experience in the public-school systems, I have witnessed the challenges LGBTQIA+ teens face in navigating their identity while dealing with the typical struggles of adolescence. That's why I am happy to work with adolescents and teens aged 13+. Together, we can create a supportive environment for growth and self-discovery.
