Hello! My name is Ellen and I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in TX for over 30 years and a Substance Abuse Counselor for over 20 years. I have also been licensed in NM, UT, and WA. I love helping people sort out the issues that trouble them and learn how to feel better about themselves and their lives. I have worked with just about every issue there is, but have most often had clients who were stressed, depressed, anxious, perhaps dealing with addiction issues. and trauma of all kinds. I use standard treatment modalities such as CBT and DBT but also EFT and EMDR with clients who are interested in incorporating Energy Psychology and Mindfulness into their lives. I find these techniques provide much relief for many people. Since many of my clients had mentally ill parents or others in their families, we often work on self esteem and finding out what is true and what is not true about themselves. Family dynamics are often very stressful in those families so I teach alternate ways of relating to people who distress them. Relief usually comes quickly.

LPC #17931 (Expires: 2022-09-30)
She is very open-minded in a realistic and helpful way. She asks you how you want to approach counseling which provides a tailored approach. Very kind while also being honest.
Ellen has contempt for most patients and phones it in around the others.
She’s been super sweet and friendly! She has been extremely knowledgeable and responsive. She’s very down to earth and straight to the point. If you want someone who will help you progress and actually make you stick to a plan for you to feel better this is your person.
Ellen is a very open-minded person, she makes me feel very comfortable in being vulnerable and sharing my feelings & thoughts. She’s got a kind and caring heart & I’m grateful for the sessions we’ve had thus far.
She is literally such an amazing woman it blows my mind. So easy to talk to so kind, and she tells you things exactly how they are. I’m truly grateful for having Ellen in my life. It a perfect balance between tough love and pure kindness, thank you.
I've been worried to start counseling for years, as well as opening up to someone I didn't know. I have a hard time opening up to people due to fear of judgement. Ellen has helped me with all of these fears. I'm very thankful both to Ellen and Better Help for helping me realize that these fears are normal. I feel like a new person with all of the new, healthy strides I've been making.
Ellen is an exceptional counselor. Her approach is very unique in that she focuses on energy and really helps you see what’s going on!
Thank you Ellen!
Starting off, I was not sure what kind of takeaways I will learn. Ellen has definitely been on a fast track to help me understand myself mentally along with helping with my marriage. We are happy and I look forward to learning more from her.
Ellen is great. She gets to the point, and doesn't pull any punches. I appreciate the straight-forward style, as it leaves little room to wiggle out of or justify one's bad behavior.
I’ve been working with Ellen for a little over a month now and I really feel that it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I felt lost in my life and she’s been nothing short of a godsend
Ellen is a great counselor with insight on a lot of different topics and life experiences. I really like her communication style and her drive to keep me accountable to my worksheets and session prep.
I find that her approach is well rounded and inciteful
This is the first time that I am attending counselling, it may be a little early to tell but I feel that it was the right decision. It was simply luck that I was paired with a wonderful lady as Ellen.
Ellen is very helpful and has taught me a lot of different skills to cope with my situation
Ellen was incredibly helpful to me and I am very grateful I was paired with her. Not only does she have a great approach to counselling, but her personality shines through in the sessions which helped me feel comfortable. She was very encouraging and would offer advice that was realistic and easy to incorporate into my life. I have had nothing short of a positive experience with Ellen. I am so appreciative of the work she has done to get me to where I am today. :)
Ellen is fantastic, she listens to what I have to say and always has helpful suggestions that I can try to find what works best for me.
I love Ellen so much! I have only known her for about a month now, but she has already helped me so much. I highly recommend her!
Ellen has been really great in helping understand my emotions and find solutions to easing my anxiety. She keeps accountable for my mental health and offers a safe space to share what I am going through. I thoroughly enjoy my sessions with her. I’m already seeing an improvement in my mental health.
Ellen helped me to understand myself better and how people may perceive me. She also gave me a bit of a reality check. I’m really grateful for the time we worked together.
I have tried many counsellors in-person until I found BetterHelp and Ellen Fields. Lucky as I am, I got matched with Fields and she has been beyond helpful in guiding me towards better mental health and relationships. Fields is very open-minded and able to guide her patients with both skill and wisdom. She is attentive, compassionate, and challenging. Her depth and breadth of experience is integrated across many bodies of knownledge (scientific and spiritual) and is something I found inspiring. She truly cares about improving lives and has a treasure chest of tools to help anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Ms. Fields has been very helpful and encouraging me these few months that I have been talking to her. She has encouraged me to continue growing as an individual even when I become my own worse critic. I dont think I would be in such a more positive mindset if I hadn't made the choice to talk to someone like Ms. Fields several months ago.
I can’t express how grateful I am to have found Ellen Fields at Betterhelp. Ellen is a very professional counsellor who is always present in every session. I have had many counsellors over the years who rarely remember what I said a few weeks before, but with Ellen I feel she took note and remembered everything. I have had a range of issues, but with Ellens support and guidance I feel together we have got to the root cause of the problem. I can be very stubborn, so I liked the way Ellen challenged me with things I did’t necessarily want to see for myself. Ellen gave me lots of encouragement and praise for my achievements which makes a huge difference, as we can forget how challenging and brave the inner work can be.
I would highly recommend Ellen if you are looking for a counsellor!
So far, I feel comfortable and hopeful about my sessions with Ellen. I’m going through a hard time, so I’m a bit in my feelings, but I’m grateful to have Ellen to help me through some of my issues in my life.
It has been a pleasure working with Ellen. She helps me calm my fears and anxieties by guiding me with various skills. She shares many life wisdoms which help me understand things better and make me feel less anxious. She is great counselor and a wonderful person.
So far she has been supportive and helpful. Giving me new ideas for what I can do to help my trauma. Helping me to start my meditation breathing exercises again.
I'm really happy that I was able to talk to Ellen, she listened and helped me with some things that I needed . We did video chat which, I'm a bit shy but she made me feel comfortable. I liked that we can message whenever. I would highly recommended.
Ellen and her methods have, so far, complimented my needs. I've enjoyed my sessions with her and look forward to more.
Speaking to Ellen felt like I am talking to a friend who is gently counseling me and helping me see the bright side. She helped me understand how to forgive. Ellen has the ability to listen carefully and let you vent. I would highly recommend Ellen for people who have personal dilemma and need to work on self-esteem.
My sessions with Ellen have been some of the most helpful sessions I have ever had. I really look forward to our weekly sessions.
