Elite Cognition, LLC
Advocacy Fulfillment Wellness Recovery
An agency specializing in therapeutic recovery-focused mental health therapy and clinical counseling services for individuals and families in the Madison, Wisconsin area and Dane County community
Children, Adolescents, & Teens
“All children deserve the opportunity to grow and succeed.”
Mental disorders in children affect the way they learn, behave, handle emotions, socially interact and more. In some cases, they cause distress and challenges throughout the day. Trauma, early experiences, family history can play a role in these struggles, yet other times children and families do not know where the changes came from. Our clinicians have many tools and strategies to help kids learn to diffuse fear, worry, disruptive behaviors and other symptoms that interfere with relationships, home, school, and play.
(Children 5-9, Adolescence 10-13, Teens 13-18)
“Your illness does not define you;
your strength and courage do.”
Whether this is your first step or the hundredth on your mental health journey, our therapists and clinicians will partner with you in your path to recovery. We utilize an education, strengths-based approach, so you will create goals, learn skills, symptom management techniques and more. We look forward to creating a healing partnership with you.
Aging Adult Populations
“You are never too old to set another goal, dream a new dream or heal an old wound.”
All ages of people do well in therapy, counseling, and mental health skill building practices. For some, it is learning to manage lifelong symptoms of mental health challenges. Yet others experience the “slump you can’t seem to get out of,” retirement woes, depression or anxiety flareups, grief, insomnia, loneliness or isolation, to name a few. Our therapists are here to help you process, learn new skills, tools, mental exercises and more.
Psychotherapy may also be called therapy, talk therapy, or counseling. It is a general term for treating various problems/ disorders by talking with a licensed clinician. The key to helping change behaviors or overcome problems rests in the personal collaboration between clinician and client(s).
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services are skill building in nature and designed to help those with mental health struggles, diagnoses, or disabilities increase their functioning so that they can be successful and satisfied in their day to day environments (home, community, work, school, etc).
Diagnostic Evaluations involve front end data gathering, assessment, and often interviewing. This data supports preparation of a summary evaluation and/or plan to support a client whose mental illness, may require outside supports. This process finds strengths, weaknesses, evaluates knowledge and skills.
Advocacy, Training, Consultation
Advocacy Support for clients and families regarding diagnosis education, explanation or other with families and/or other supports and agencies. May also include support in working with school systems to understand a minor’s mental health needs, creating behavioral response plans, interventions and/or support to align current IEP goals with appropriate responses/goals based on the student’s mental health diagnoses.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has changed many things in this world, in a very short time. Elite Cognition wants you to know that we are here for you. We are currently accepting new clients.
We are OPEN and seeing clients in person and via virtual telehealth platforms. The delivery platform is decided between provider and client. Thus, allowing for the safety of all, while maintaining the best-informed decisions regarding your care and progress towards goals.
Keeping everyone as safe as possible from contracting the Coronavirus means that things look a little different around here. If you are being seen in person, you will be asked to follow CDC recommendation of wearing a mask and washing hands (or using hand sanitizer) when entering our office. As much as possible, seating areas have been spaced out and apart. Further, the staff at EC maintain high levels of sanitation of the office at all times.
We understand that this is a challenging time for many. Please reach out…we are here for you.
We are fully Telemental health Certified!
In March 2020, DCDHS (Dane County Department of Health Services) issued Guidance No. 2020-12, allowing Psychotherapy and other Mental Health services to be delivered via telehealth (videoconferencing); temporarily waiving certification and licensing requirements during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Elite Cognition made the conscious decision to learn all we could about how to safely continue providing high quality mental health care to our clients, both in person AND via a service called telemental health. Staff studied and learned to provide superior services remotely, via HIPAA compliant secure video/phone.
We are proud to say that ALL staff at Elite Cognition completed the 13-hour training requirement to be fully Certified Clinical Telemental Health Providers (CTMH). As a client you can be assured that any telemental health services you receive from our agency meet the strictest of HIPAA and WI licensure compliance standards, ethics and patient rights. You can also be assured that we can continue to provide telemental health services into the future, after the temporary waiver is lifted allowing for continuity of care.
