More about me

Licensing: PhD, ATR-BC, LPC
Years in Practice: 20
State: DC

Hello. I am Dr. Elva Anderson. Thank you for taking the time to review my profile, as well as seeking out to getting "better help."

Your emotional and mental health is important. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), wellness educator, and a Certified Mindfulness Meditation teacher located in the DMV area.

My therapeutic mission is to assist in empowering people from the inside, out -providing attentive listening, assisting in finding ways to better enhance one's mental health and lifestyle. My therapeutic approach is an eclectic approach. For I believe there is not a “one-size fits all” approach to self-care. As you may know, the human healing journey is a personal one and no two people can navigate the same situation the same.

I have a treatment style that blends psychotherapy, Positive Psychology, and DBT.

I am here to listen, create a holding space, and to provide clinical input when requested.

If you have struggled in the past with getting therapy and now giving it another try, I will strive to suggest and provide ways for self-healing in a safe holding environment.

I am here to assist and support you as you travel on the life's journey of self-exploration and authentic self-care.

I look forward to meeting you, assisting you with your therapeutic needs and achieving your goals.

Until then, do take care.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Anderson was incredibly kind and helpful in just the first session. I felt like I could be vulnerable with her (I can’t believe I cried in front of a stranger so quickly) and she gave me practical next steps without minimizing my experience or coming across like practical /simple things would fix me. I highly recommend her.
