About Me

My Name is Elie and am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in New York. I enjoy working with people and providing therapy and support that empowers my clients to see that change can create new opportunities for a happier life. My goal is to assist my clients in managing a variety of concerns, and help them transition through life’s challenges and help them be successful in their goals.

I have over 7 years of experience providing individual, group, and family counseling. I have worked within a multitude of settings, helping people manage challenges in their homes, schools, and healthcare facilities. I have a considerable amount of experience with clients with a broad range of concerns including, motivation, life balance, career challenges/transition, relationships, communication, anxiety, depression, and chronic / terminal health challenges (i.e. cancer, dialysis). I have worked with couples individually and together to help them overcome challenges in their relationships. Communication in a respectful manner is key to rebuilding and strengthening relationships and I would like to help you with your relationship challenges. Having considerable experience working with a culturally diverse client base allows me the ability to be more sensitive to cultural differences; I want to make you feel that you are being listened to.

It is important to me to establish a safe, nonjudgmental environment, and show respect to all clients. The methods that guide my practice are a combination of cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic, and motivational interviewing therapies. I am reflective and flexible in my style, to stay responsive to my clients. Each person has their own way of relating, and I do my best to create a plan with my clients that works for them.

I try to check my messages a least once a day and try to return all messages within 24hrs M-F unless I am on vacation or it is a holiday for me.

Exploring therapy was a huge step! Should you decide to move forward, I am here to assist you with overcoming obstacles standing in your way of success.

Would absolutely recommend Elie. He helped us get out of a rut and back on track. He helped us figure out how to listen more consciously to each other. 10/10
