About me

I am a social worker by trade (LCSW) and have 10 years of work experience in the field. I worked in hospice and transitioned into therapy over the last few years. I have worked with a variety of issues including low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, motivation, symptoms of ADHD, parenting challenges, anticipatory grief, and bereavement.

I like to get to know you as a person so I can have a thorough understanding of you and any problems you are trying to figure out. I will make an authentic, genuine connection with you. We will be a team collaborating to create a treatment plan that suits your lifestyle and personality. I create an environment where you will feel comfortable, relaxed, connected, heard, and validated. I spend time getting to know you so I can understand the issues you have been facing. I will move at a pace that you are comfortable with. The therapy styles I enjoy using are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy.

I want therapy to be something you look forward to!

Ellie has been quick to respond to messages. She has listened to what my goals are for therapy and has been helpful in giving techniques to obtain them. I have enjoyed building a strong rapport and I’m looking forward to continuing our work together.
