"Elizabeth Ossip is a meticulous, dedicated, and compassionate Social Worker. She has an innate love for others and an empathetic personality.”
"Elizabeth Ossip, LCSW has proved that much time and great care can benefit a child's need and overall progress. I am grateful for all the help she provided for my son and me, and her contribution will always be much appreciated."
"Elizabeth is truly an angel and I feel so blessed to have her in my life. Without her wisdom, love, compassion, insight, and guidance, I cannot imagine how I would have processed the transitioning of my grandmother and have the relationships I do today. Through my journey with Elizabeth, I have released old energies, old patterns, and blockages and become more conscious, more aware, and ultimately more accepting of myself. My heart has opened and I have achieved a new sense of clarity. I recommend Elizabeth to anyone who is seeking enlightenment, clarity, spiritual guidance, and wishing to reach their fullest potential."
“I have been seeing Elizabeth Ossip for almost a year and it has been life-changing. Over my twenty-year marriage, I have seen two other therapists to help with communication issues in my marriage. Whereas those sessions were helpful, Elizabeth was able to help me better see the root of the issues, work on getting stronger together, and change some of my thought processes. My relationship with my husband is stronger than it has ever been. Overall I feel emotionally stronger. My thoughts are more positive through the work we did on positive thinking, redirecting thoughts, and materials she suggested reading. Elizabeth has so much knowledge and has introduced me to methods and techniques I would have never known existed without her. She is compassionate, smart, intuitive and genuinely cares about her patients."

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress. The EMDR technique uses eye movement, auditory, and tactile activation to produce bilateral brain stimulation. This facilitates the processing and desensitization of traumatic memory that has not been effectively processed. Because of the frequency of co-occurring PTSD, trauma, and high ACE scores in the addiction population, EMDR is a useful modality in the substance abuse treatment setting.
Integrative Breath-Work, sometimes referred to as Rebirthing Breath-work, is simply a breathing technique for the greater well-being of body, mind, and spirit. The technique was developed by Leonard Orr in the early to mid-1970s and later by Sondra Ray, but different forms of conscious breathing have been practiced in many cultures and disciplines throughout history as a means for purification and self-awareness. The name Rebirthing comes from the common effect of remembering and healing birth trauma. The birth experience is for all of us a profound change. Even under the most ideal circumstances, it is powerful, often painful, and possibly traumatic. A state of amnesia seems to be created, possibly by a hormonal response, but the event may remain in the subconscious. Our birth experience and first impressions of life outside the womb can create deeply ingrained patterns and responses to stimuli that may continue throughout our life. Our perceptions of ourselves, our relationship with others, and to life itself, can be greatly influenced by unconscious thoughts. Clearing, releasing, and changing these old thought patterns can have a positive effect on present-day life. During a breath-work session, you are guided to a fuller, freer, more energetic breath. This can increase energy, reduce stress, and cleanse, and purify. It also seems to often create a state that allows old thought patterns and memories to release, dissolve and heal trauma. Every session is unique, however, some common experiences are relaxation, a sense of energy, heightened awareness, emotional release, the release of birth and other significant trauma, and an overall feeling of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Breath-Work is not respiratory or physical therapy, psychotherapy, past life regression, hypnosis, yoga, meditation, hyperventilation, or religious practice. It is simply a breathing process, which holistically purifies and energizes, enabling us to be closer to our true selves. When practiced in a group or individually on a regular basis (a minimum of ten sessions is recommended) with a professional Breath Work coach, remarkable results are often experienced. Elizabeth Ossip, LCSW, has been a practicing Breath-Work Coach in South Florida since 1991. She began her training in 1986 and has trained extensively with Sondra Ray and other predominant professionals in the field. Elizabeth’s groups and individual sessions continue to influence many local Breath-Work practitioners and individuals throughout South Florida.
