My Approach to Helping

Hi I’m Elsa (shethey), a NYC clinical psychologist specializing in the psychology of spirituality (meaning, purpose, and connection). I work with individuals and couples going through life transitions and identity exploration. LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and Asian Americans who seek an affirmative and intersectional approach to mental wellness are especially welcome.

My approach is integrative and culturally-sensitive in working with meaning, skills enhancement, and values-based living. When helpful, I bring perspectives from transpersonal, ecological, and health psychology. I also believe that healing must be contextualized by the very real systemic problems and structures we exist in, and have internalized. Everyone deserves spaciousness for their diverse selves to be seen, held, and celebrated as a dynamic whole.

I also provide consultation and training for therapists, and welcome research collaborations. Let's connect: contact@elsalau.com 917-267-8306
