Welcome It takes strength to seek out assistance with managing life's many challenges. It is great that you are here to take that first step! I have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2005, and have been privileged to work with clients of all ages, from 0-adult. My focus includes depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, pregnancy issues/pregnancy loss, spirituality, adjustment issues, and family issues/stress. Since every person is unique, I use a variety of techniques that are tailored to the needs of the individual. I believe that clients are an essential partner in the therapy process, and will help to make sure that you are comfortable with sharing sensitive information/topics. I am a warm, caring, supportive person, and will help you make progress with your goals while moving at a pace that is right for your needs. So what can you expect from me as an online therapist? I am a neutral person that you can vent and express your feelings to (and on your own time! No appointment needed to write messages.) I will give you support, encouragement, and feedback on the topics that you bring up. You can expect to hear back from me at least 1-2 times per day whenever you message me. Even if you don't write every day, I'll check in from time to time to see how things are going! I will also do all that I can to accommodate your busy schedule and respond in a timely manner! You are welcome to write messages whenever you have time, day or night, and I will read them. I generally reply either early afternoon or late evening (EST) Monday-Friday. Currently I'm staying at home with my son, so my hours may vary a bit depending on his schedule, but you can definitely expect a reply when you write! I will check in on weekends if needed/requested, especially during a trial period. I'm so glad you found 7 Cups, and I look forward to working with you!

I started therapy just a few data ago and I’ve already got a list of different strategies to deal with my issues and I’ve discovered the more I talk just how much I’ve actually been going through. It’s been a great experience so far and tremendously insightful, and I look forward to further conversations.
During the therapy she made me become aware to different ways of thinking about my problems, at the same time she was supportive and understanding.
Really easy to talk to. Inspirational and a calming person
Very Kind and understanding. Helped me better accept myself!
Very thorough responses and helpful.
she really cares and asks her patients how they been if they don't write as much, which creates a friendly environment, at least I was encouraged to communicate because I'm overwhelmed with my situation kind of.
Elaine has been very insightful and compassionate from our very first exchange. Her support has been so helpful to me during a very difficult time.
