My Approach to Helping

As far as anyone knows, you’re an Achiever. You seemingly function so well that others forget that you’re human and have problems, too. You’ve checked off a lot of boxes of success, but you often wonder why you’re not truly satisfied. You experience guilt for wanting something more out of life and relationships. It’s frustrating to experience anxiety that constantly makes you feel like you have to work really hard to keep things together. Add in the uncertainties and stress of an ongoing pandemic along with ongoing racial injustices, and you wonder how to gain longer-term relief.

You want a healthier, more wholesome life. One, where being connected to others does not mean that you have to abandon yourself or your needs. You’re looking for effective tools to manage everyday anxieties and to be relieved of that harsh inner critic. You might also be looking to heal from wounds of unresolved traumas, impostor syndrome, and perfectionism. I get it.

Not only do I have years of clinical experience to assist you with this, but I personally know the support it takes to get past stuck places like your well-being depends on it. As your Therapist, you can expect me to be warmly engaging, attentive, and direct. I offer video and phone sessions to all CA - Residents and College Students. Just visit my website https:carmelleellisonpsychotherapy.com or call to schedule a free 20-minute phone consult today.

More Info About My Practice

Many new clients want to get past the stuck places in their personal lives, careers, and relationships. I help them arrive at a place of harmony and fulfillment by treading these challenging areas with them and helping them increase the skills and awareness needed to live more wholesome, integrated lives.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

For individuals who are looking to heal from wounds of complex trauma, such as, racial trauma or relational trauma (i.e. a history of childhood emotional neglect), I help them recognize how these experiences have been stored in their bodies and their nervous systems. This allows them to notice the present-day knotting effect on their lives and become familiar with trauma-informed work that heals.
