About Me.

Elena.

MSW BScPsy AASW registered.

I feel a great therapist is considerate, warm and patient who listens to the needs of her clients. As a Social Worker in Private Practice with the foundation of a Psychology Degree, I use a holistic approach that is tailored to each persons unique and individual situation.

Using evidence-based psychological theories to normalise your current situation, and realistic achievable strategies to make a positive difference when you leave each session. All  parties are heard equally and have the space to express their perspective, ultimately building stronger empathetic connections.

I started my practice, to make a positive difference – to have a voice for the voiceless. I am someone who inspires positive change in people’s lives. I support you in exploring your current concerns & investigating your history to uncover patterns that you may not even be aware of. I motivate you to feel strong & confident, to evolve into a better version of yourself and be happy in your relationships.

As well as running my Private Practice, I am the Brisbane Mothers’ Mental Health Network Coordinator, Publishes monthly articles in several outlets, and customises Training & Education for my clients on her YouTube channel. These are examples of a holistic approach to my clients needs for education, empowerment and normalising how we all can struggle at maintaining our unique and healthy relationships.

SOCIAL WORKER?

The reason you choose a Social Worker is we understand you are not a problem who needs to be fixed, we believe you are internally reacting from your environment & the people in it. This means your environment (work, relationships, friends, children) and you past experiences (trauma, upbringing, childhood, status) and current conflicts that you need to space to sit down and understand why you are feeling this way or sometimes reacting this way.

Think of it as a holistic approach to your Mental & Emotional wellbeing.

You are the expert in your own life, I am here to help you make sense of it

“I genuinely get excited to see my clients, they have graciously invited me to participate in their deeply personal journeys, so I enjoy seeing everyone grow, admire the positive changes and encourage when it all seems too much. The thing about therapy is sometimes it feels like it gets worse before it gets better (because you are digging up things that you have purposely buried) but those with the strength to continue and believe in their process to build a better life, I will support and empower in whatever ways are individual and unique to them.”
