Written by S.H. on Jul 07, 2020 after counseling with Ellen for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

With just 4 sessions of working with Ellen I have benefitted a lot. I like that we could come up with small exercises with tangible results. She understood my situations very well and was very encouraging.

I have worked with Ellen for about two months and on a weekly basis we would go through and discuss various issues that I’ve struggled with. Ellen would dissect the information and offer supportive advice and helpful exercises to practice and I feel much better than when I first started seeking counsel.

Ellen is great! She is very comforting without being patronizing. I've only had one session so far but it helped me immensely.
