Accepting Clients

Hey there! I'm Elena, a queer, sex-positive therapist specializing in working with LGBTQIA+ and non-monogamous clients.

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in Denver, CO

About My Clients

At Arcana Counseling, I welcome adolescent and adult individuals and relationship configurations of all kinds. Whether you're facing mental health or relationship issues, moving through a difficult life transition, seeking coping or communication skills, or continuing on your journey of self-discovery, you don't have to do it alone. Wherever you are on your path, I will meet you there and support you every step of the way as we work collaboratively toward your goals.

My Approach to Helping

My approach is holistic and based in narrative and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I believe in the power of genuine interpersonal connection to facilitate change, and aim to create a safe container where emotions, beliefs, and identities can be explored and expressed in session. I strive to honor my clients' stories and acknowledge the impacts of institutions and systems on our lives and well-being.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe that therapy is inherently political and I am committed to opposing oppression in all its forms. My practice is rooted in anti-capitalism, anti-racism, sex positivity, and intersectional feminism, and is affirming of LGBTQIA+ identities, sex workers, polyamory/non-monogamy, kink, neurodiversity, and disability. I am not a blank slate! I bring authenticity, curiosity, and humor to my practice as a therapist, and I firmly believe that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors in determining the success of our work together. That's why I offer free consultations, so we can chat first to find out if we're a good fit. :)
