Elena is a very skilled and compassionate Christian counselor. I highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for help with stressful situations or to heal past hurts that you may not even realize are there. I was able to connect quickly with Elena and trust the gentle but firm direction she provided to help change some lifelong unhealthy behaviors into healthy behaviors for myself, my career, and my relationships. I leave from sessions with Elena with a renewed sense of peace and a better understanding of where I'm headed. Elena knows exactly how to combine her knowledge and intuition to provide a caring and nonjudgmental zone where real healing can and does take place!
