Elisa Dorrough-Ewing


About Me

I am a LCSW, licensed in the state of Florida with 20 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I graduated from the University of South Florida with my Master's in Clinical Social work in 2000. I have a wide range of experience, working in various practice settings including: inpatient, outpatient community mental health, private practice, and home health. I have worked with adults, children, couples, and families over the years. Couples face challenges throughout the life of a relationship. As we change and grow, often we need the relationship to shift to accommodate the changes. You can expect that I will treat you with compassion and non-judgment and be present with you as you work on your self-determined goals. I try to give equitable time to both individuals in couple's therapy and help them work on communicating needs, working through trust issues, and developing a plan to help foster the relationship. I look forward to working with you!

She is incredibly kind, patient, helpful, knowledgable, and accommodating. I felt supported by her from session 1! We are already seeing benefits from therapy and working with Elisa. We are very thankful for her.
