Elaine Messarra

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Hello my name is Elaine and I am an L.P. C. in Texas.

I am currently accepting new clients for individual therapy only.

My online office hours are 7 am - 4 pm Monday- Friday CST. Texas Time.

I am Bible believing Christian. I am saved through Faith by the Grace of Jesus. I believe in the power of prayer and I offer prayer during my sessions. Faith is my source of strength, joy, and hope. Life can be stressful and uncertain. Sometimes we focus on the problems and forget about the Saviour. When the disciples were in the fishing boat during a bad storm, they became fearful. Jesus spoke over the angry sea, and it was calm again. When I focus on Jesus instead of my storms, I am comforted and encouraged. I would like to share that peace & faith with my clients.

Therapeutic dialogue, or talk therapy is a positive approach to processing thoughts & emotions.
My therapeutic approach & pace is customized to individual needs.

I have 20 years experience as a psychotherapist in private practice and in nursing home facilities.
I also have experience working with children, adolescents, teenagers, & special populations including special education, learning disabilities, gifted & talented. I worked as an educator and school counselor for many years. I look forward to meeting you !
