" Ellena is a supportive, caring and experienced therapist. She is open-minded and willing to modify what she does to her client's needs. For example, she got training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), so she could work with me using this method, which I really wanted to try. I felt validated and empowered by her willingness to learn a new approach. IFS is compassionate and flexible, compared to other therapies I have experienced. Working with Ellena has helped me feel in control of my own process, rather than having therapy "done to me". In the past, I would not have dared to challenge a therapist, but I am learning to do this, because I know Ellena will respond in a way that is respectful, honest and kind. I am delighted to recommend her, especially to anyone struggling with issues related to developmental trauma (C-PTSD).
