As a Clinical Assistant at Evoke Entrada, Elinor assists the primary therapist in working with families and studentsto best support the needs of each. Her key responsibilities include assisting with in-the-field sessions, performing weekly parent phone calls, and facilitating scheduling needs. She works with students to determine their unique weekly therapeutic assignments and then collaborates with the Field Instructor team to implement and fulfill these goals.

In 2017 Elinor graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She is a licensed associate clinical mental health counselor, and her studies were CACREP accredited. In 2013, Elinor graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in both Psychology and English from Northern Arizona University, where she also was a varsity athlete on the Women’s Soccer team.

While studying for her master’s degree, Elinor spent a summer working as a field staff at Evoke Entrada. At this time she also accrued clinical hours working in a university college counseling center and spent two years working with NAU’s substance abuse program. Upon graduation she returned to the field full-time until the spring of 2019. For two years Elinor worked as a Senior Field Instructor at Evoke Entrada before coming back to the company as a Clinical Assistant.

Elinor grew up in Portland, Oregon and, after discovering that the sun shines daily elsewhere, has lived in the Southwest for the last eight years. Outside of work Elinor loves drinking coffee on the porch, sleeping under the Milky Way, experiencing moments of genuine connection, being perhaps more competitive than her friends enjoy when playing anything, and pursuing new experiences.
