I am a psychologist and psychotherapist, psychodramatist, trained in the Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy, Seven Principles in marriage counseling, pain management and addiction therapist. Being a mother and wife, I decided to work on improving the lives of families in order to raise strong, fearless and happy adults.
When I first reached out to Dr. Elena Predescu for help, I felt I was crazy. I knew I wasn’t, but it sure felt that way. Too many things had happened in a short time span: my mother’s health evaluation revealed she had an inoperable brain cavernous hemangioma, I was struggling financially, my girlfriend at the time had left me without an explanation, my job became a continuous battle field with my employer. I was having persistent negative thoughts, I couldn’t think rationally anymore and I just couldn’t find myself. Basically, I was on the edge of a mental breakdown. It felt like I was carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders, and I felt completely alone. In all that noise that had become the background music of my life, I found comfort in Dr. Elena’s kind voice and approach towards me. She made me feel at ease, I could share thoughts and emotions that would sound stupid or irrational to my friends, but she would listen to me, and we would find a way for me to aquire skills that’d help me manage these thoughts and emotions. The techniques Dr. Elena used in order to help me cope with my situation made me feel I was not alone anymore, we became a team. She taught me how to compartmentalize and how to develop coping skills I could use outside the session limits. She helped me understand that I cannot control the things that happen to me or to my loved ones, but I can control the way I react to it, which came in handy when my dad had a stroke. She basically helped me create my personalized first aid mental kit and I would just take out whatever I needed, depending on the context I’d find myself in. Dr. Elena Predescu changed my life in more ways than one. She helped me better myself and she made me fall in love with this profession, as I am now studying to become a psychologist. Reaching for help to Dr. Elena Predescu was the best decision I ever made for my mental health.
At first, I think it's perfectly normal to be skeptical about seeing a therapist. I know I sure was. And to be honest, Elena was the second person I went to for therapy sessions. I don't know where to start. I'm not sure if it's her calmness of character or her friendly smile, but I am sure of one thing. That I don't see myself struggling through life without my weekly meetings with her. She helped me overcome some of my biggest insecurities, and she continuously helps me find ways to handle my nasty past experiences. I could not have found a better therapist to soothe my needs and character, and I recommended her dearly for whomever is taking therapy into consideration!
Ever since I have met Elena Predescu I felt that she is the person I can finally open up to. I was in a very difficult time in my life and she helped me get thru it. I felt connection with myself and others, things that I could not think I could ever do. It’s hard to describe. This person made me discover and understand many things. She is truly dedicated an passionate about her work.
Elena is not my first therapist and I was skeptical about working with her, but I felt something special, a fondness that is hard to find. I went to her in the most difficult time of my life, when I lost my father and broke up with the love of my life. I could see in her eyes that she is not judging anything she is hearing. She really listens. Together we were able to find the best version of myself, to discover, accept and heal myself.
I feel lucky I started therapy and found someone extremely dedicated who helped me get my power back.Thank you so much!
