Elyssa Helfer, M.A., Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
As a member of the Affordable Therapy Los Angeles team, I am privileged to have the opportunity to bring my unique experience and skills into practice. I firmly believe that we all experience challenges that can fell overwhelming and impossible to overcome. It is my hope that in our work together, we can bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.
I am kink friendly and work frequently with the LGBTQIQ and Kink population. In addition, I welcome both individuals and couples with alternative relationship configurations. I allow space to explore your gender identity(ies) and sexual orientation(s) and everything in between. When you begin our work, you will enter an environment free of judgment that will allow you to explore the depths of your identity.
The therapeutic journey that will take together is grounded in respect and understanding. You may be nervous, worried, or even scared to begin this process, and that is okay. Let me hold some of that fear so we can break through the wall of change together.
