Elyse Vesser is a mental health professional in the community based crisis stabilization program at St. Louis Center for Family Development (STLCFD). She graduated with her Master of Social Work degree from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. Elyse provides in-home crisis stabilization services to children, adolescents and families. The goal of the program is to teach individuals and families the skills that prevent out-of home placement and stabilize families. Elyse uses a variety of modes of therapy and treatment. This can range skill development, parent education, to collaboration with other community providers, referral and advocacy for additional resources. She has received training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Relational-Cultural Therapy. Elyse’s experience involves working with families involved in the child welfare system, parents struggling with substance use disorders, and survivors of commercial sex exploitation. In addition to her focus on trauma-informed treatment with individuals and families, Elyse is interested in bringing an anti-oppression lens to working with adolescents and families and understanding how relational and cultural experiences shape their lives. In her spare time, Elyse enjoys reading and going on hikes with her dog Shiloh.
