My Approach to Helping

Hi I’m Elsa (shethey), a NYC clinical psychologist specializing in life transitions, identity, and spirituality. I’m also passionate about serving communities that have historically experienced barriers to whole-person care including LGBTQ+, BIPOC, Asian American, and neurodivergent (gifted, 2e, autistic, highly sensitive) teens, adults, partners, and families of all kinds.

My practice integrates cultural diversity, health psychology, and ecology in exploring meaning, skills enhancement, and values based living. I also believe that healing must be contextualized by systemic factors that impact each person’s unique struggles and strengths.

For research collaborations, consultation for therapists, and therapy services, let’s connect at contact@elsalau.com
