You can bring whatever you’d like help with into a session. It’s possible to experience a remarkable shift regarding whatever is ‘up’ for you — whether that be past or present triggers or traumas you want to overcome; energetic or emotional blocks you’ve been anxious to clear; old habits you’ve had difficulty changing; positive strengths you want to enhance; spiritual longings you yearn to bring to fruition; performance skills you’d love to develop, etc.
I work intuitively and bring clear seeing and a deep knowing to our sessions.
During the session, I will help you to get to the heart, or root, of the challenge you’re dealing with and to make the lasting changes you’re longing for. After the session, there’s often a feeling of relief, lightness and renewed confidence and energy, as old patterns dissolve and as exciting, new possibilities open up. It can be surprising for people to see how naturally and spontaneously they move towards healing.
What enables all this to happen? In part, it is the cutting edge therapeutic tools that I am highly trained in, which help us to quickly and effectively access the core of an issue and release it. But, equally important, is the depth of insight, clarity and intuitive resonance that I bring to my relationships with my clients. These skills have come from my over thirty years of experience as a therapist, as well as through my own life challenges, personal healing work and ongoing spiritual quest.
My style is heartful, compassionate , down to earth and perceptive – - sprinkled with a little humor. When sitting with a client, I see ‘myself’ in them, and can feel what it’s like to be in your shoes. I’m then able to clearly sense exactly what is the most effective way to support you, in each moment, in the healing and changes you’re longing for.
What clients say…
“Not a day goes by that I don’t notice and appreciate my increasing sense of confidence and well-being; and feel deeply grateful to you for helping me stabilize and heal. Working with you has made an enormous impact on me; and I feel the positive changes and carry the benefits of it with me each day. Words can’t adequately express my heartfelt gratitude to you for all you’ve given… guiding and teaching and supporting me.”

I have been in a lot of psychotherapy in my lifetime and am a retired therapist myself, so I’m pretty picky about whom I select to work with. Elly is the most nonjudgmental therapist I have ever worked with. Her dedication to a non-dual meditative practice in her own life infuses her approach, freeing and empowering me as a client to explore myself unencumbered by such traditional obstacles as transference or projections onto the therapist. Elly is well-versed, skillful, and intuitive; she employs methods that go beyond the chit-chat level of counseling, enabling me to do the depth work that I find to be truly healing. Her group classes also encourage growth, insight, and opening to new ways of being…. I would like to go to a Spacious Presence meeting for the rest of my life!

~ Simon G. certified Nutritionist and Wellness Educator
“I was amazed to feel my emotions dissipate and change. I always walk away from each session feeling closer to true inner peace…My arguments with my husband have ended and I fell more relaxed within myself, more able to communicate what I need and not pulled in by emotions from my past.”
~ Sharon O. Physical Therapist
“I have had some major physical issues over the years. Through working with Elly, I became more and more clear about how my emotions were affecting so much of my physical body. As a result of my work in therapy, my physical symptoms have greatly minimized. Elly is a very warm, kind and nurturing person wand truly understands what is needed in the healing process.”
~ Joy S. administrator
“Therapy with Elinor is incredible. To say that it got things moving in my life, is an understatement. After sessions, surges of deep knowing came over me. And I have found a great measure of peace.”
~ Justin D. High School teacher
“Elinor is a gem! The techniques she used led to resolution of my old issues, so that now I am ‘free’ of them… I feel I can trust Elinor completely. Like passing clouds, I’m learning that the difficult feelings come and go, and that I’m actually much larger than my passing emotions. My anxiety is eased and I can now make different choices. I would underscore that Elinor cares deeply about her clients. That more than anything, she created a safe, nurturing environment where I could learn how to care deeply about myself.”
~ Carole G. University Professor
“Elinor is a truly caring person. I could go wherever I needed to with her and feel totally safe. EMDR was terrific….Finding that trauma held in my body that I didn’t even know existed and being able to release it. I now am “free” of old issues and am not carrying them into present interactions. I can experience people without attaching old “roles’ to them that were based on other people from my past unresolved issues. I feel much more free and am generally happier and more confident.”
~ Joyce J.
“With Elly’s skillful help, I not only worked through the most difficult period of my life but came out with the tools and perspective necessary to effectively approach any challenge I may face going forward. Elly has an amazing ability to reflect what you’re feeling and to help you discover your own truth.”

“I came to see Elly because I’m a professional public speaker and began having intense panic attacks while speaking, which was potentially significantly damaging to my career. After several sessions of working with Elly, I am back in the flow of my public speaking, with nary a panic attack on the horizon. I deeply appreciate her help with this.”
~ Chris S. Executive Editor
“The last session that you did with me, has done the trick, and I am now able to lose weight without the old fears. I have lost 14 pounds and feel that I can now lose many more. You helped me resolve a life-long fear that was ultimately ruining my health. I am deeply grateful.”
~ Elaine N.
“Our session was just so deeply helpful for me. I was able to lead a faculty meeting last night – very rejuvenated and from a much more open, relaxed space. And I just feel so grateful. I feel re-inspired both personally and professionally and it means a lot.”
~ Christine, M. University Faculty Department Chair
“I have been amazed with how vastly improved my golf stroke has been after the session we had on improving my performance. I was excited to see how my fluid and strong my stroke was and how well I performed – just like the visualization in the EMDR session that we did!”
