About Elissa Gross

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents , adults and families. I am very passionate about the work that I do, and always go above and beyond ( e.g., calls, texts and emails between sessions ). I have a vast range of experience, including adolescent development , parent coaching, helping clients with stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders , self injury , low self esteem and relationship problems. I work with each of my clients to create an individualized threatment plan, which we review and alter as needed.
