Elon has extensive experience counseling families who are either on the brink of divorce or who are currently separated.
To help couples restore their connection, Elon has specialized in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a treatment model that is proven to mend, heal, and enhance relationships. While other therapeutic modalities for couples have a 35% success rate, EFT has achieved outstanding results, earning this model the “gold standard” award for couples therapy. As such, approximately 86% of couples, worldwide, report that they are happier in their relationship, and a two-year follow-up study demonstrates lasting results (data obtained from: Johnson, S.M. (2008) Hold me tight: Seven conversations for a lifetime of love. New York, NY: Little, Brown and Company.).

To help children feel relief from, and liberation of, the symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Elon is certified in administering Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Children who have experienced physical, sexual, or psychological abuse or neglect, loss, or exposure to violence, either in the home or community, may be experiencing PTSD. However, trauma is multi-faceted, and can be defined or encountered in many ways. Children who are suffering from unresolved trauma may develop anxiety or depression, and may exhibit suicidal ideation, in addition to significant behavioral problems and substance abuse.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is proven to address and alleviate the symptoms described above, as well as the personal distress of the participating parent or caregiver, by enhancing parenting skills and increasing supportive interactions between the parent/caregiver and child. Treatment lasts from between six to twelve months. To find out more, check out <a href=”http://tfcbt.org/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>http://tfcbt.org</a>.
