About me

Hello and welcome!
My name is Ellen Minter and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been working in the helping profession for 17 years. Over the years, I have worked with various populations in various capacities. In addition to being a therapist, I have spent time as a teacher, sexual assault victim advocate, hospice social worker, and direct support professional for the developmentally disabled. I learned many things in these roles and it is those things, accompanied with my own personal life experiences that have most equipped me with the necessary skills and understanding to help you navigate the transitions of your life.

My therapeutic style is humorous, warm, and direct. While my role may be to help you feel better, I find that minimizing and appeasement are counterproductive to that goal. Always, I am honest and direct. I am very open-minded and I try to be respectful of all I work with. I have a bit of a multi-modal approach. I find that various techniques from different approaches, can work in conjunction in different situations.

Life is hard and unpredictable. I hope to help make things easier for you.

Ellen is the best. I have really enjoyed working with her and can already see improvements in my life, my relationships with family and friends and most importantly my relationship with myself. Ellen is thoughtful, kind, pushes me just enough but never rushes me or makes me feel unheard or misunderstood. I’ve bounced around to a lot of therapists over the years for different reasons but I’m here to stay! I highly recommend working with Ellen.
