Counseling is offered for individuals, couples and families, and each client may experience a combination of these to address different needs and dynamics they face as they go through the counseling process.
Strategies for Success’ founder, Elizabeth Rahamim, LCSW, SAP is a Work-family-life expert in Chandler, Arizona. Originally from Southern California, she had been in private practice there from 2002-2010 as a solo-practitioner. Passionate about this work, she focused on re-establishing Strategies for Success in Arizona following her relocation to the area in 2010. Due to significant lack of Counseling resources available in the South Chandler Area, she determined South Chandler would be an accessible location for Chandler residents, as well as for Queen Creek/San Tan Valley, Casa Grande and Maricopa. in 2012, Strategies for Success opened its doors, and has since expanded to adding multiple counselors with varying specialties, ethnic backgrounds and language offerings. Due to having difficulty coordinating psychiatric care for clients in a timely collaborative manner, the decision was made to expand services to include psychiatry care right here in South Chandler. Currently, Strategies for Success is proud to provide counseling and psychiatry care to over 800 clients per month, coming from all over the Phoenix Valley. Elizabeth is humbled and proud of the reception she has received from her Arizona neighbors.
