Eloise Schaerlaken (she/her), MSW, LCSWA

Outpatient Psychotherapist in West Raleigh

Works with ages 20+

Eloise (she/her) is an Outpatient Psychotherapist at Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness in West Raleigh. She received both her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Master of Social Work degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Eloise is passionate about working with couples, parents, and adult individuals (20+) with challenges related to: relationship issues, attachment, intimacy, negative conflict cycles, parenting/co-parenting dynamics, parent-child relationships, emotion regulation, communication, stress, and impacts of divorce and/or other life transitions.

Eloise understands that when painful emotional or relational patterns feel cyclical, it can leave people feeling stuck, overwhelmed, completely burnt out, and afraid to take risks again. She also understands that when a hurtful event or a rupture within a relationship occurs, it can leave us impacted by our new and confusing feelings or by the resurfacing of older wounds. She recognizes the effort it takes to seek support and aims to create an open and inviting space where clients can profoundly explore their inner world, present concerns, and feel accepted and understood in whatever they bring into the session.

In her therapy sessions, Eloise often explores how her clients' pasts impact them in the present and works with them as they make sense of their pain, how it moves through them, and the ways in which it comes out with others in their life. She is deeply committed to walking alongside her clients in their journey to learn and master new and sustainable ways of engaging in order to feel more connected, and experience a renewed sense of security, balance, healing, and profound change.

Eloise primarily draws her therapeutic techniques from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), as well as Psychodynamic Therapy (insight-oriented), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Satir Family Growth Model, and she is Level 2 Gottman Couples Therapy Certified.
