Elena Vassallo Crossman, M.Div, LCPC

Director of Intake

Elena has been working with clients for over 30 years and, even more importantly, matching clients with therapists since IPA opened its doors in 2010.  She utilizes her keen sense of empathy and asks the right questions to help clarify your concerns and match you with a therapist that best fits your needs.  She’ll also answer any questions you have about payment or the use of insurance and make sure to put you in touch with a therapist who has availability at a time that works for you. Getting help at IPA starts with your first conversation with an owner of the practice who knows our therapists well.
