Elaine received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from York University. It was there that she discovered the significance of counselling for students struggling with mental health. Her passion for counselling and psychology developed throughout her undergrad.

She wanted to advance her knowledge and experience by approaching mental health from a variety of viewpoints and worked as a volunteer research assistant on a study at CAMH assessing various therapeutic techniques with individuals struggling with Schizophrenia and cognitive impairments. Elaine also gained experience working as an intake worker for a corporation focusing on employee and family assistance connecting people with mental health services.

Elaine worked on personal development by travelling to Europe, South America, and the Middle East and achieved her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. She then worked as a counsellor for the students at McMaster University where she learned the importance of building strong relationships with clients for therapeutic success. She believes in a client-centred approach and working with the client to establish their needs and how to achieve their goals collectively, through a genuine, non-judgmental, and trusting relationship.
