Chloe Elyse believes that the core of successful therapy is in the bond between client and therapist. As such, Chloe Elyse always meets the client where they are and works to build a strong relationship through fostering a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic environment where the client can feel safe to share themselves.
During her graduate career, Chloe Elyse gained clinical experience working at Boston Medical Center. She worked with Refugees and Asylum Seekers in her first placement and in a general adult outpatient in her second. What was most important to her throughout the therapeutic process was to ensure she took measures to understand each client’s whole situation, including background, environment, identity, relationships and socioeconomic status, and how they have, and currently, affect the client. She also worked hard to provide adequate and equitable care for each client, tailoring treatment and auxiliary services to their specific needs.
