Reclaim your life.
Restore your joy.

Find your inner peace with therapy tailored to you

I’m here to guide you to a better place

Hi, I’m Elyse, the owner of A Better You, LCSW, PLLC.  

I know that seeking help can feel scary. It’s a big deal to be vulnerable, open, and honest about what you’ve been going through! 

But guess what? You don’t have to face your hardships by yourself, because I’ll be with you every step of the way. 

Combining my extensive training as a licensed clinical social worker with my own life experiences, I provide a uniquely empathetic approach to therapy; I care about who you are, and more importantly, who you wish to be.

On the other side of your fears is the person you’ve dreamed about becoming.

A better you is right around the corner.

Here's How It Works

After you get in touch with me, you’ll schedule an initial, free 15-minute consultation to discuss your mental health history and determine what kind of therapy may be right for you. 

In the first full session, we’ll develop a course of action with goals and objectives that accommodate your specific needs.

All sessions after that will be about reaching your milestones and getting you on track for the life you deserve.

Treatment will involve cognitive behavioral therapy, empowering you to embrace a positive mindset and practice healthy, effective coping. 

Welcome to a better you.
