Elena Dobbs, PhD, LPC, LMHC, NCC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Warner Robins
At Encompass Counseling, we are a team of young, energetic and passionate behavioral counselors who work with children aged 4 up to teenagers who are dealing with a variety of behavioral or developmental issues. Autism is something that we deal with quite often and successfully through play therapy and behavioral therapy. We offer services both at our offices and in the privacy of your home.
Elena Dobbs offers therapy to teens, adults, couples and families, starting from the assumption that you are powerful, capable and worthy. Nothing is broken. There is only growth and change individually and within important relationships. We will achieve this collaboratively. I look forward to providing a safe and non-judgmental environment for you.
I blend several approaches and draw on a variety of styles and techniques to help you as a unique individual. I help you build on your strengths, so that you can achieve your goals in a positive manner. I am a widely experienced teacher of Mindfulness and Guided Meditation. I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist.
