At Elite, our counselors have master’s degrees and are licensed through the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners. Our lead counselor is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and is also registered as a clinical supervisor through the BBHE to supervise other counselors still working towards independent licensure. 

Our counselors are Certified Clinical Trauma Specialists (CCTSI), trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Play Therapy.

Clients are provided with a confidential, safe, compassionate, and judgment-free environment for individuals and families to explore areas of their life they would like to improve. We believe that change is possible and that therapy can be a positive, healing, and rewarding experience for anyone.
