About Elayne S. Daniels, PhD
As an anti-diet, trauma informed clinical psychologist, I provide psychotherapy and consultation services to men and women, adolescents and adults. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher with specialized training and certification in yoga integrated psychotherapy for people with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and/or trauma.
I completed my predoctoral, postdoctoral, and advanced postdoctoral fellowships at the Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT.
Since 1999, I have been in private practice in Canton, MA. I have taught psychology courses at several colleges; presented at professional conferences on the topics of eating disorders, body image, and sexuality; and published in professional journals. I have been the featured guest on radio and television programs as well as on a variety of blogs. I am referenced in a documentary about the dieting industry and published a chapter in a college text book on the psychological effects of women’s pursuit of beauty. I have been a sought after speaker on a variety of topics.
In 1991, I began a personal yoga practice. In 2006, I became certified to teach yoga. I then went on to earn certifications in LifeForce yoga (for depression and anxiety), Trauma-Sensitive yoga, Color Me Yoga for children, and I have developed a body image yoga curriculum for use in my private practice. I have additional training by The Body Positive and am a licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator.
Another area of interest and specialization is working with people with the trait of High Sensitivity.
In my spare time, I love to beach comb, go for walks, discover new places, spend time with family, and immerse in the beauty of nature.
