Elyse Goldstein, PhD

I use an eclectic approach, culling from some classical and many contemporary techniques. More than technique, however, is the comfort and rapport that is essential for good therapy to take place. I’m told that I am a good listener, kind, funny and perceptive. I like to create an easy but profound environment for our work together. I am an active listener and I give feedback.
