Welcome. Are you considering therapy in Charlotte for yourself, a loved one or your relationship but not sure where to start?
You are in the right place! Through therapy you can discover your true potential for change, happiness and fulfillment. Therapy provides a safe and warm space where you can feel heard, understood, accepted just as you are and guided to living a life of authenticity, fulfillment, connection and health.
Dr. Elvita Kondili founded the Good Therapy in Charlotte, NC in 2010. Since then, she has been helping countless individuals and couples learn the tools and practice the skills to greater happiness, harmony, mental health and fulfillment.
Dr. Kondili specializes in mindset training and emotion regulation through the use of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) & Mindfulness Meditation. A fundamental premise of REBT is humans do not get emotionally disturbed by unfortunate circumstances, but by how they construct their views of these circumstances through their language, evaluative beliefs, meanings and philosophies about the world, themselves and others.
Dr. Kondili believes a complete transformation and lasting happiness is possible through training on the “inside out” method: instead of changing the outside things that seem to be causing problems she first helps you work with the mind to develop more positive, rational and constructive ways of viewing yourself, relationships and your purpose in the world. This way any external change you wish to make will be easier and more sustainable.
Dr. Kondili is particularly skilled in helping individuals enhance their motivation to change, learn the tools to make the changes they want in life and maintain them long-term.
Areas of specialty include: depression, anxiety, borderline traits, substance use disorders, behavior addictions (sex, food, etc), disordered eating, relationship difficulties, work and career, life purpose and satisfaction.
What Is It Like To Work With Elvita
“When I look back at the process of personal transformation that I have undertaken over the past year, I consider therapy with Elvita one of the most crucial and integral aspects. I regularly comment to friends that Elvita has helped me piece my life back together one session at a time! When I first came to her, I was completely lost. I had few to no healthy coping mechanisms and had not been emotionally capable of addressing and processing a lifetime of family dysfunction and codependence and the resulting unhealthy behavioral patterns that had developed as a result. With patience, kindness, and understanding, Elvita has helped empower and equip me with coping skills and healthy boundaries in my life. From our very first session, I felt that she understood what I was experiencing and was a strong advocate in my recovery. I feel absolutely certain I would not be where I am at today without her support and encouragement.”
“Elvita brings a fresh perspective to whatever topic we discuss in our sessions. She has a talent for helping me to articulate my feelings but also helping me to put them in their proper place in order to grow. The sessions I attended with my fiance (now husband) inevitably resulted in a deeper, more meaningful understanding between us as a couple about difficult personal history and family relationships. I love her method of eliciting “the evidence” that I/we have for a particular troubling thought or belief-and challenging that belief. I am so grateful that Elvita works in Charlotte and that I have her to talk to!”
“I have been with Elvita Kondili for over a year and I can’t imagine switching therapists. I have worked with a number of therapists over the years and have to rate her at the top. Her method and approach is quite open and warm. However, she does an excellent job at challenging my flawed thinking. I appreciate that I can get feedback from her when I request it, but she is also very good at helping me to work through things on my own. I find value in every session and the themes stressed in sessions have had a lasting impact on me. I can recommend her for personal therapy. She has helped me deal with the end of a marriage, battle addiction, and other issues related poor self-image.”
