I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in Florida with an specialty on Medical Family Therapy, I have been working for over 12 years of experience working as a counselor. I have worked with couples dealings with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, career challenges.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, narrative-language based, and solution focused counseling. Our work and dialog and treatment plan will be specific to meet your unique and needs.
It takes strength to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to walk this path with you and provide support and empower you.

My boyfriend was very skeptical about doing couples counseling. He said that he had a hard enough time sharing feelings with me after 4 years and couldn’t see himself doing counseling and talking to a stranger. After our first session with Elida his opinion changed! He found Elida easy to share with and even said he feels more comfortable talking to me with her because she helps him explain things better for me! We have only met with her a couple times and I already feel like it has helped! I would strongly recommend this counselor! She takes her time to get to know each of you!
