About Elena Covo, LMFT

Seeking therapy, or asking for help is never an easy step. And yet, if you are here, it is probably because you are looking for some answers, guidance, and a trustful environment where you can talk about whatever difficult situation you are going through. By making the first step, you are showing courage and together we can help you feel empowered and learn to embrace your individual strengths to better cope with life hardships. In a warm, safe, and empathetic environment, I help people feel more in control of their own lives and get a better understanding of what they want for themselves.

I work with individuals dealing with body image issues, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and trauma. My work is grounded in psychodynamic theory, but I also draw upon CBT and mindfulness. I use EFT to help couples create a safe and secure attachment style while becoming more empathetic with each other to better grow together.

I am an interactive and dynamic therapist who believes that my clients are experts of themselves who might need a little assistance, compassion, and warmth to embrace their personal strengths and insights to better cope with everyday life struggles.
