Elysa Fraginals, Psychological Assistant

Elysa is supervised by Dr. Jodi Abramowitz
Hi there, my name is Elysa! I’m excited for the opportunity to work alongside you or your child. I am currently in the process of earning my doctoral degree in clinical psychology, therefore I work under the supervision of Dr. Jodi. 
I am passionate about helping others heal and become the best versions of themselves. I aim to work collaboratively with clients to create a life that is filled with meaning, joy and authenticity. My approach to therapy is warm, supportive and often infused with humor! I also believe it’s important to challenge patterns of thinking and behaviors that may be preventing you from living a full and healthy life. By providing a safe, nonjudgmental and culturally-inclusive space, my hopes are that we can create a relationship where you feel free to be your most authentic self and work toward your goals feeling supported.
On a personal note, I love opportunities to speak about and include aspects of culture and spirituality that are uniquely important to you as an individual. As a second-generation American from Latin roots, I understand the importance of valuing multiple perspectives and learning how to maneuver through the world respectfully and mindfully of others’ differing experiences.
