Hi my name is Elyza Bertuzzi MS, CAGS, LMHC (She, Her, Hers). I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts and Rhode Island; and Licensed Telehealth provider in Florida and Vermont. I specialize in working with Teens and Adults to address trauma, anxiety, body image, and self esteem using Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed EMDR.

I am passionate about working with other women of color, therapists struggling with their own mental health and burnout, helping teens and college age adults find value within themselves when it necessarily hasn't been something they have connected with before.

I strive to support each individual in determining their own goals and helping them find success and hope in meeting their goals. 

My approach is filled with collaboration, being strength based, understanding, accepting, and honest. I utilize an eclectic mix of client centered, EMDR, IFS, DBT, and mindfulness with those I work with.  I provide insight and support to individuals help them find their path towards accomplishment because change is hard!
