Elisa Peimer, Licensed Master Social Worker, 117578 is practicing under the supervision of Shomari Turner-Gallagher (New York, LCSW, 77587) at Resilience Lab.
Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.
On a personal level, it’s always been satisfying to help friends and colleagues through their issues. That segued into actually learning skills for guiding people through life’s challenges. Defining yourself and your self worth through your job can be challenging—particularly for people in creative industries. It may even feel impossible to untangle your personal and professional lives because your identity is being “creative.” It can be helpful to work with someone who sees you as a whole person who exists outside of a professional realm. I also see many mental health issues within the music business—like the constant financial pressure, impacts of being away from family, and exposure to alcohol and drugs. There’s been so much press about musicians and mental health challenges, but the industry really isn’t set up to support that. As a musician, this is an area where I feel pulled toward being of service.
A career you love is a source of joy. It also comes with unique pressures that can impact your sense of wellbeing. As a musician and former marketing executive, I get it. Work and identity are closely intertwined. The juxtaposition of "who you are" and "what you do" can deeply impact your relationships and sense of self. It’s normal to experience periods in your career where you feel stuck, uninspired, or burned out. During these times, therapy can help you see things in a new way, inspiring new passion for what you do. I create a safe, trusting environment for clients to work through the personal and professional challenges. In this space, clients have the opportunity to examine the experiences that have led them to where they are today. By making connections between themselves, their career, and their relationships, I help clients get clear on their patterns so they can change them for the better.
As a former executive with three decades of entertainment industry experience, I understand the unique challenges of the modern workplace—especially for artists and creatives. I'm supportive, empathetic, and provide a safe, trusting place for you to look honestly at your life. Expect me to ask clarifying questions. I come from a place of curiosity. Together, we’ll look at your thoughts, feelings, and experiences from a new angle. Part of my process also involves helping you take real, concrete steps toward achieving your goals.
