Britt I. Elsing, LMHC, MHP

I am the founder and sole provider at Optimal Behavioral Health PLLC.  I blend evidenced based practices and assessment with my strong belief that every client has within themselves the ability to make the most of their given situation.  Recovery oriented therapy includes acceptance of my clients as they are and working with them to accomplish the goals they want to achieve. My approach is based on highlighting and helping clients to rebuild their ability to rely on their own inherent resilience through dialectical behavior therapy and integrating cognitive behavioral techniques to help strengthen positive coping skills and reduce negative thought processes.
