About me

I am Gianna Elms, LCSW, a mental health and expert consultant. I am endorsed by Robert D. Enright, Ph.D. as "the best Forgiveness Therapy clinician in the country" for my work in treating trauma, as well as by the International Forgiveness Insitute. I am also an experienced expert in a number of other areas.

I help adults with tele-therapy and on-site services to experience peace and joy in their lives. Additionally, I train, supervise and consult with professionals and others on clinical matters, issues specific to domestic violence, disability rights and benefits, and more.

I have an MSW in Social Work and have a valid license to practice as a Clinical Social Worker in Arizona and Missouri. I am also a registered clinical supervisor in Arizona. Previous to my MSW, I earned an M.Ed. in Educational and Counseling Psychology and a B.S. in Disability Studies and have a valid certification to practice as and supervise as a Rehabilitation Counselor nationwide. After receiving my MSW, I completed a post-graduate Fellowship in Psychoanalytic Thought and an ADA Coordinator Certification. Most recently, I have also earned the designations of Clinically Certified Domestic Violence Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level 2, and Certified Forensic Social Worker. I have also been officially endorsed as "the best Forgiveness Therapy clinician in the country" as of November 11, 2022, by "the Father of Forgiveness Therapy" and who Time magazine named "the forgiveness trailblazer", Robert Enright, Ph.D., which was followed by official endorsements on November 25, 2022, by Dennis Blang, Director of the International Forgiveness Institute with similar sentiments on behalf of the International Forgiveness Institute. In addition to being an expert in Forgiveness Therapy, which is recognized as being central to healing trauma, I also have specialized training.

My clinical experience includes crisis intervention, hostage negotiation, domestic violence, treatment of past abuse, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES), evaluation and treatment of anger, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, alcohol and substance use disorders, migraine and chronic pain, career counseling, case management, advocacy, military and veterans, accommodations of people who experience disabilities, blindness (blind), visual impairments (low vision), and deaf-blindness (deaf-blind). I also have experience training clinicians and others, and forensic expert witnessing and consulting.

And finally, the subconscious is the mechanism through which thought impulses which are repeated regularly with feeling and emotion are quickened, charged and changed into their physical equivalent. You may voluntarily plant in your subconscious mind any plan, thought or purpose which you desire.
