Elaine's practice focuses on positive change. Her overarching philosophy is derived from Imago Relationship theory, which
weaves together leading psychological paradigms and facts from recent research in neuroscience in a way that helps clients
see themselves and their relationships with a different perspective.
Elaine's areas of clinical specialty include:

Michigan office. She offers a highly personalized treatment plan tailored to each of her clients' unique needs to help them attain

The Story of the Pomegranate
The artwork depicted on this Website is a stylized pomegranate branch. The pomegranate holds special meaning for Elaine.
Traditionally, pomegranates are a symbol of abundance and good fortune. Their copious seeds represent rebirth, growth and
connection. In art, the pomegranate is often a symbol of hope. A seasonal fruit, the appearance of pomegranates heralded
the arrival of summer, light and warmth.

Elaine believes that the clients she serves, like pomegranates, are precious and multi-faceted, full of hope and health that is
just waiting to be realized and expressed.
