About Me

I am a professional clinically limited licensed social worker with experience working with a wide range of Diagnoses. I have a Master of Social Work degree with a Concentration in Psychodynamic Theory, which I obtained from Wayne State University. In addition to Psychodynamic Theory, I often utilize a Cognitive Behavioral approach, as well as incorporating Mindfulness into sessions. I have been working through an agency that provides Mental Health services to inmates in county jails since August of 2018 where a primary part of my job is to meet one-on-one with individuals having difficulty coping with their incarceration.

I also have experience working in Outpatient settings, doing one-on-one therapy, where I worked primarily with Substance Abuse. I have worked predominantly with adults, but am more than eager to also work with families, couples, and adolescents. I strive to use empathy to relate to my clients as well as building rapport. My experience working in a Criminal Justice setting has allowed me to show my client’s acceptance, reflective listening, motivational interviewing, and assisting client’s in forgiveness for themselves and others. My experience with Substance Abuse has allowed me to teach and reflect with the client on the five stages of change.

I individualize your treatment based on your necessities. My goal for my clients is to collaborate to create and maintain treatment goals that will allow for growth and healing. I aim to give my clients a safe place to work through trauma, mental distress, hopelessness, etc.

"I’m enjoying conducting my therapy online. It’s convenient and safe. My therapist is nice and on point with guiding me through my journey. I like that you can work at your own pace and when it’s convenient during your day or night. This is a good program and I’d recommend it."

"I am very pleased with the service Online-Therapy.com has provided me so far. The videos and worksheets help me to be organized with my thoughts and help me see where I am at, and my therapist, Elaina Gardner, is responding daily to my questions/comments which is nice. I am looking forward to my first video call with Elaina next week! I only wish I could have had a video call a little earlier.... but Elaina was already booked up all this week."

"I've been doing this for a few months and I feel like it's helping me recognize my emotions as well as learn healthy ways of coping. My therapist is wonderful. I am so glad I'm going through this to help become a more stable woman/mother."

"I started out with the no-cost option (just the online material) and was impressed. The online material is very well structured. Going through the worksheets provides really helpful guidance. I was impressed enough that I added the counselor feedback and chat options, and I am glad that I did. Regular communication with a counselor is a really beneficial addition! I was feeling terribly stressed and overwhelmed, and this program has definitely helped me to sort things out."

"The plan that I have, seems to be more for self realization. Being honest in the worksheets, helps you see and acknowledge your problems with a fresh perspective. My therapist answers back daily, if not, every other day. Ive only been using these services for a few weeks, but I am more aware of my issues, and working towards a change for the better."
