Looking for counselor who I liked took forever it seemed but once I met the counselors here I knew I was in the right place. They are very caring but easy to get along with. I was looking for anxiety therapy and depression therapy and they help me overcome these issues. I have been going for about 6 months now and I have couldn’t imagine what my life would be if I didn’t get the help I needed. Once we met a few times in the office I decided to do therapy online. It was quick and painless to set up and since we met in person it’s like we never missed a beat. I would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for quality counseling by real people. They have changed my life for the better. No hesitation to recommend them, the best therapy in Fort, Myers.

My daughter has been seeing Elena for two years after suffering from emotional and physical trauma. My daughter has made great strides in her self-worth, critical thinking, confidence and emotional processing throughout this time. Elena and her EMDR treatments are a complete game-changer and I will forever be grateful to her for helping get my daughter on a path for true healing. Elena is an absolute professional! We’ve had parental sessions with me and also accommodated mother/daughter sessions with us that have given us the gift of in-depth understanding for positive changes in our relationship. If you’re on the fence of treatment or are looking for someone with a better connection, your future will thank you for seeking Elena’s services today. I’ll be forever grateful to her for her help.
