So glad you stopped by...
I’m Elena Flores, a counselor in Tucson who is licensed to provide psychotherapy. I help clients get to the root of anxiety and depression by exploring whether these stem from current stressors or childhood wounds. I can help you learn how to cope with present circumstances, set healthy boundaries, or process past trauma or childhood wounds.
I love working with:
— Teens (and their families)
— Young Adults
— New Moms
— Multi-generational Households
Counseling for Teens
Is you teen depressed or withdrawn? Are they struggling in their relationships with peers? Have they had suicidal thoughts or self-harming behaviors? Maybe you just don’t know how to communicate with them and feel like your relationship is strained.
Are you a young adult in college or starting in a trade or career? Are you stuck trying to move forward and can’t seem to take the next step? Let’s work together to cope with changes to come with these things.
Are you struggling to figure out what’s wrong or why you’re feeling anxious or depressed? Maybe you have a known trigger and want to address this specifically. Sometimes it’s low self-esteem (or high self-hatred) is bubbling under the surface of depression. Maybe you learned somewhere along the way that emotions aren’t safe to express. Ruminating or overthinking is a common side-kick to anxiety. Childhood wounds effect us profoundly and sometimes hold us back from our full potential. Let’s take a look at what’s going on together and get you to a place of healing and growth.
Are you struggling to adjust to motherhood? Do you have postpartum depression? Are you struggling to bond and attach? Are you trying to balance motherhood and work outside the home? I know the struggles of being a new mom and I’ve love to support you through this with professional counseling and deep empathy.
Are you living in a home/family with multiple generations? Do you care of parents, grandparents, and/or grandchildren? Let me come alongside you and help you navigate the joys and complexities this can bring.

As a Christian with a Catholic background, I offer faith-based counseling if this is your preference. I am comfortable with the integration of faith and a Biblical worldview into counseling if you consider this important to you.
If faith is not part of your story or you would rather not bring this into therapy, no worries – I am experienced and comfortable working with clients from diverse faith and cultural backgrounds.
