If you are looking to
enhance your well being, trying to rebuild from a loss, coping with
grief and upset, recovering from any relationship, dealing with
challenging life changes - I am here to listen and support that process.
I have a genuine passion to work closely with you as you rebuild. It is
my goal to offer a collaborative experience, catered to each
individual's needs. I believe in the whole-person approach, which
includes your sense of self, your environment, your relationships, your
past, your present, and what you see for your future.
As a therapist, I see my role as creating the environment for change
to happen. I've come to believe that we are each our own best healer.
We have our own inner wisdom that knows what is needed to move
forward, however sometimes this knowing becomes blocked. When this
happens, we seek the external support of a qualified therapist.
My name is Elyssa Barbash and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, offering counseling services in Tallahassee, FL. I am also a Level I EMDR certified therapist, which means that I specialize in grief, trauma, and loss. I hope to make the person sitting across from me in my office realize that they are their most important resource for making life work. I believe that my clients hold the keys to their own healing and
understanding, and I work to be a guide and mirror as my clients embark
on their journeys of healing and growth. In addition to new
insights, I help guide clients to transform their new understandings of
themselves into practical changes and life adjustments.
Elyssa received her Bachelors degree in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication from the University of Central Florida.
