Relationship Work-Out with Elliott Kronenfeld, LICSW
Elliott Kronenfeld is known in many countries for his work with couples, fertility and sexuality. As a licensed psychotherapist, he has a Boston-based private practice specializing in working with couples and singles developing mature and healthy relationships and managing the transition into parenthood.
Elliott has a Master in Communication Management and a Master of Clinical Social Work. After spending time working in adoption/ intensive foster care and inpatient pediatrics, he worked internationally focused on gestational surrogacy and egg donation for gay men and women and heterosexual couples/singles facing barriers to having children. In addition to his private practice, Elliott is also an adjunct instructor in the Wheelock College graduate program for Social Work.
Elliott says: Finding just the right therapist can be a stressful process, but when you find one, it can be an exciting time for growth and change. I believe that therapy is a personal gift to yourself as you raise awareness and grow in meaningful ways. Whether you are seeking therapy because you are at a crossroads about your future, having relationship concerns, struggling with moods, or just trying to understand your past or present life, the therapy experience must bring you a sense of safety and comfort. I am deeply committed to offering a non-judging, accepting and safe experience.
Elliott has published several short stories and is a contributor to several publications on fertility/egg donation. He has been interviewed by press and media in several countries and has spoken at many national and international conferences.
Elliott and his partner have two children – one through international adoption and one through gestational surrogacy. Raising children as an openly gay man, certainly helps Elliott understand the rigors of maintaining a healthy relationship while guiding children through a complex world!
