Elisa Zepeda’s Therapist Disclosure Statement <<< (Clickable)
You have greater power and control over your life than you think that you do. Whether you are feeling overwhelmed in your relationships, lonely, anxious, traumatized, or discouraged, healing can happen when we take back the power, we all inherently have and become the best version of ourselves. Your decision to seek out therapy is already a courageous recognition of your ability to grow and change for the better.
I work with couples, families, and individuals to help them take back control of their lives allowing them to regain trust, intimacy, and confidence. I strive to create an environment that works for you and your unique circumstances. I am trained in systemic models that focus on relationships and families as well as EMDR. I received my Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Abilene Christian University and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate.
