Hi, I am Elyse Lanzner Gong (she/her). I am a licensed clinical social worker based in Berkeley providing video-based therapy in California. I support my clients to feel empowered in their daily decisions and overall well-being with transparency, humor, and compassion. I practice with an eclectic approach to therapy utilizing evidence-based modalities including Gottman Level III Couples Methodology, CBT, DBT, MI and IFS.
Research shows that couples wait on average six years after relationship issues arise to seek professional help. I utilize Gottman couples methodology to complete a thorough assessment of the relationship and integrate research-based interventions that are known to be effective in improving your relationship.
Whether your relationship is experiencing perpetual conflict, there has been a rupture of trust, or there is increasing emotional distance felt between partners, applying the tools learned in this couples therapy can truly change your relationship.
I am here to support each partner in the relationship throughout this process regardless of the relationship outcome. Some couples enter therapy with different goals for the outcome of therapy, and that is more than ok and in fact very common. I welcome any and all relationships in my practice. Please expect that my intentional description of couples therapy is referred to as relationship therapy to include all ways that relationships are identified by those in them.
