My Approach to Helping
Hello, my name is Elias Ellis. I am a licensed clinical social worker with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. I received my Master of Social Work degree from California State University Dominguez Hills and my Bachelor of Social Work from Arkansas State University.
I've had the privilege of working with multiple heroic individuals who have been overwhelmed by life's stressors (trauma, grief, loss, end-of-life conditions, conflicted relationships, and loss of employment), forgotten who they really are, and are willing to cope with subsequent trauma responses.
My specialty lies in the fields of trauma, interpersonal conflicts, adolescent development, anxiety, and depression. I have been trained in the following modalities:
-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
No person is the same; therefore, I will draw upon the vast array of different psychotherapeutic modalities in order to assist each individual client with identifying the problem and recognizing how their thoughts and emotions impact their behavioral response.
