Elise’s previous experience includes school-based counseling as well as working with child and adolescent Emergency Mobile Psychiatric Services. Through this work, she is well-versed in high risk assessments including the threshold for higher levels of care, however, she is excited to resume the practice of longer-term support, and has experience with anxiety, depression, self-injurious behavior, grief, the spectrum of sexual and gender identities, and social and familial conflict.
