Elliot (he/him/his) is a doctoral intern at CAPS. He received his B.A. in psychology/sociology from Butler University, his M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Ball State University, and is currently a Ph.D. doctoral candidate at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He has worked in a variety of clinical settings and deeply values co-creating a welcoming therapeutic relationship. Elliot thoroughly enjoys working with college students and the unique time of self-exploration, identity development, and self-expression that comes with secondary education. He approaches therapy from a person-centered perspective informed by emotion-focused, attachment-based, ACT, and feminist principles and grounded in the client’s unique sociocultural background. His research interests lie in how structural forces impact mental health and mental health care in a push towards a more socially just and equitable society, especially for marginalized populations. During his free time, he enjoys finding ways to engage the Great Outdoors, spending quality time with friends, cooking, listening to music, and exercising.
