ink-to-insight-journaling-workshops-therapeutic-writing-psychotherapy-therapist-ashland-medford-oregon-elisaHello, I’m Elisa (she/her) and I have always been intrigued by the human capacity for resilience, self-discovery, and deep personal growth. It is an honor to guide people on their journeys of healing and transformation.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I facilitate psychotherapy sessions via telehealth for individuals residing throughout the states of Oregon and California.

I am also a therapeutic writing specialist, bringing insights from my lifelong journal writing practice and intensive training to both clinical settings and global community workshops. I find the blank page to be a magical place, and I think you will, too. It is a true pleasure to witness the joy and life-enhancing insights born from the relationship between workshop participants and their journals.

I teach journaling/expressive writing and specialized workshops globally via Zoom and delight in a diverse classroom/workshop experience. As a seasoned facilitator, I am especially skilled at cultivating sacred community space while inviting a relaxed sense of playfulness. You will likely discover that this unique balance of depth and levity will begin to mirror your journal writing experience, whether you are a forever-journal-writer or a curious novice.

And on a personal note… I am blessed to live in beautiful Southern Oregon with my wife and our objectively adorable rescue dog, Zakai. Along with my passion for the writing life (mostly nonfiction and poetry), I love sharing relaxed meals with friends, journaling, reading, and engaging with community. I meditate in nature every chance I get and marvel at the flow of gentle Oregon river streams and the unique gifts of each season. Play and laughter are essential to me. I am truly alive when I am both teaching and learning, and I am never, ever far from a cup of hot tea.
