Elie Carlile has worked as a primary therapist at Caron Renaissance since 2017. She grounds her therapeutic work in the Renaissance clinical philosophy and a family systems approach that enables clients and families to work through difficult issues. In fact, what she loves most about her job is that she gets to see the pride patients take in knowing they have accomplished a goal, done something difficult in their therapeutic work, or overcome an obstacle.
Her practice embodies the Caron Renaissance core tenet that “the family is the patient, and the patient is the family.” One of the most rewarding aspects of that work is to see patients and their families establish and maintain intimate relationships using tools they learned from her at Caron.
She joined Caron in 2013 as a counselor assistant, where she had the opportunity to provide daily support to clients, allowing her to better understand the treatment experience. During her time as a counselor assistant, she helped to co-facilitate family workshops.
Prior to joining Caron, Elie was a counseling intern at The Renfrew Center for Eating Disorders and other co-occurring disorders. She has a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Florida Atlantic University and is working toward post-graduate licensure.
