Tangia Elieff, LCSW

Clinical Executive Director;

My name is Tangia Elieff, and I have been working in the mental health field for over 15 years. Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to work within the educational school system, residential treatment facilities, a child psychiatric hospital, child protection services, family preservation centers, nonprofit agencies, foster and adoptive organizations, and adult/children community mental health facilities. I work with clients from various backgrounds, a range of mental health concerns, and life challenges. I have a gift of empowering individuals to take the necessary steps towards eliminating current and past fears, traumas, childhood "hang ups", negative experiences, and unwanted mental health symptoms which frequently blocks you from receiving healing in your mind and in your life.
