Reconciling Within

Mental Health Therapy


Listening. Learning. Supporting. Growing.

Hello! I'm Cora McElwain (she/they). I'm a therapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).  I'm licensed in Missouri, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and Washington, which means I can provide virtual therapy services to folks in any of those states. I've been practicing therapy since 2018, mostly working as a trauma therapist in non-profits. I opened Reconciling Within, LLC, as a private practice in 2022, to increase access of affirming mental health services to the Queer Community.


My passion areas are working with anxiety, depression, trauma, chronic pain/illness, family conflict, and self-esteem issues. I have a particular joy and experience working with folks in the LGBTQ+ and poly/non-monogamous communities!

I use trauma-informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with an intersectional feminist lens in my practice. This means that I believe that identities, history, and strengths matter in how to work with you on your mental health. The therapy I provide is often described as compassionate, collaborative, and nonjudgmental.


As a therapist, I believe that we often have what we need within us to heal, but sometimes anxiety, depression, pain, trauma, or internal conflict can get in our way from using that knowledge to make the progress we want to feel. For example, maybe you want to wake up earlier but depression gets in your way, or maybe you want to complete projects without feeling worried about failure. My job is to help you talk through problems, explore emotions, set boundaries, or cope with symptoms to help uncover that knowledge and capacity heal, recover, and grow. Therapy can help you cope with the stressful things in your life, so that you can move forward in how you want to.

Whether you’re seeking therapy to reconcile your past, get to know yourself better, or cope with stress, I’m glad you've come. If you have any questions or additional information could be helpful, please email me at
