There's a New Doctor In Town: Dr. Elisa

For Immediate Release

New York, NY - August 12, 2010

Finally, there's a doctor in town that has pizzazz and spunk, and better yet, she's strong, black and female. Dr. Elisa has a wide variety of experience and expertise under her belt and she's ready to share it on the national level.  Followers like Rev Run and Brandy recognize her smart, to-the-point outlook on life, relationships, love, mental health and self-appreciation as something that this world needs more of. She breaks the mold of your classic, up-tight doctor and allows her patients to think outside the box when it comes to personal healing and mental awareness.


The New York native became a mother at the age of 18 and, after the brutal murder of her child's father; she had to raise her child alone. She was, in her own words, "a child trying to raise a child." Dr. Elisa decided to use her resiliency and experiences to help not only herself but other young women as well. She went on to earn a Master's degree in Social Work from Columbia University and a Ph.D in Clinical Social Work with a focus on research, policy and administration from Yeshiva University. Those accomplishments gave her the formal credentials to do what, in her heart, she already knew she was destined to do.
