Elisa is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Her formal education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Forensic Psychology from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City and a Master’s of Social Work from the University of Connecticut. Elisa has over ten years of postgraduate clinical experience, working with children, adolescents, adults and families in a variety of settings, including private practice. Throughout her career, Elisa has been particularly committed to promoting and collaborating on women’s issues in a way that reduces barriers and increases independence. Among her professional experience, Elisa founded and co-facilitated a women’s empowerment group in CT. Most recently, Elisa worked as a Social Worker at EPOCH of Brewster and at Cape Cod Hospital.
Elisa has navigated her own transition most recently with her relocation to Cape Cod from Connecticut in 2013 with her husband and two young children and “starting over.” From this experience, she has become aware of the struggles faced by other families on Cape Cod and in the struggles of women in “transition” from one phase of life to another.
