Dr. Elise Gibbs


Licensed Psychologist

Board Certified in Clinical Psychology


I’m a licensed psychologist who specializes in evidence-based therapy for adults with anxiety, OCD, and eating disorders. 

Clients have described me as an active therapist who is warm, supportive, practical, and focused on behavior change. The fit between a therapist and client is the most important element of therapy, and my approach prioritizes collaboration, feedback, and a genuine investment in your goals and well-being.

Before opening my practice, I was a Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford Psychiatry. In this role, I delivered treatment, supervised psychology and psychiatry trainees, conducted diagnostic and pre-surgical assessments, and led psychotherapy groups.
