Lotus Psychology Practice

The therapy practice is called Lotus Psychology Practice because we find ourselves inspired by the lotus flower. It grows beautifully out of the mud. Many get stuck in the mud and fail to see their inner strengths and beauty. 

At Lotus Psychology Practice we help you get out the mud and help you find your strength.

Dr. Elana Rimler

Practice Owner

As your therapist, I will help you share your story to better understand how it may be presenting problems for you in the present, because as Maya Angelou wrote, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”( I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings)

You may have patterns of handling relationships or experiences and want to get unstuck from your usual patterns. Sessions will feel collaborative, respectful and non-judgmental and will be focused on your treatment goals. You will find sessions to be practical, highlighting your/your child’s strengths. You will gain tools that you can apply to life’s many challenges.

Ena Redzematovic


As a therapist, I pride myself in empowering my clients to improve their quality of life, discover their strengths, and gain tools to help them navigate any challenges life might throw their way. I believe in creating a safe place for my clients to express their thoughts/feelings and reach their goals. 

My practice is collaborative, non-judgmental, and strengths-based. Just as each person is unique, I tailor each therapeutic approach to meet the individual needs of my clients. I utilize various modalities of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and play therapy. I have experience supporting children, adolescents, and adults navigate through a variety of social-emotional and mental health concerns. My areas of focus include anxiety, depression, stress management, self-esteem, life transitions, and emotion regulation.

Gabrielle Kirby

Psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapist

Welcome to the right place if you’re facing challenges with your children! Are behavior issues manifesting in school, at home, or both? Drawing on over twenty years of experience working with children and their families, I specialize in conducting functional behavioral analyses to identify the root causes of behavioral concerns. This enables me to create personalized and targeted behavioral intervention plans, addressing issues both at home and in the school setting.

Additionally, my expertise extends to cognitive testing, providing valuable insights into the cognitive functioning of individuals. This is particularly beneficial for those seeking a deeper understanding of their cognitive processes or for parents looking to assess cognitive abilities in children.

If you are in need of an Autism Testing, I employ comprehensive assessments to evaluate and diagnose autism spectrum disorders. This involves the use of the ADOS-2, the gold standard in diagnosing autism, as well as the ADI-R, an extensive interview detailing one’s developmental history.

Moreover, I am trained in Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral therapies, making these approaches integral to self-improvement and self-discovery.

Whether you’re navigating behavioral challenges, cognitive assessments, or exploring therapeutic avenues, I am committed to providing comprehensive support tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.

Andrea Keltos

Licensed social worker (LMSW)

My name is Andrea Keltos. I am a licensed social worker (LMSW). I specialize in working with children and adolescents (and their families), all the way up to young adulthood. I have experience supporting this population in and out of school-based settings. I strongly value the power of a positive social-emotional learning experience. I also work with adolescents during transitional periods to cope with change, loss, and conflict.

I utilize various dialectical behavioral techniques to foster emotional regulation skills, distress tolerance, mindfulness and interpersonal relationship building skills. I am client centered and strongly value a positive therapeutic connection.

As a result of the global pandemic, it has become apparent that our communities need more support. Coping with the aftermath, as well as the isolation and fear, can be impactful on our own mental state. If you or someone you know could use support during this difficult time, please reach out to schedule an appointment today!

Moreover, I am enthusiastic about facilitating group therapy sessions, further enriching the therapeutic experience I aim to offer.
