My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with anxiety, depression or difficulty in relationships? Have you tried therapy, but not gotten the results you desire? The cause could be unresolved trauma that is blocking your ability to move forward. Our past can contaminate the present, which causes our future to replicate our past, leaving one stuck. Do you and your partner struggle discussing issues, feel disconnected, or are drifting apart? The failure to communicate is the greatest cause of marital problems. Using Gottman Couples Therapy, I will help you learn effective skills to manage conflict and find new meaning in your relationships.
I offer a safe space to explore and address difficult issues; work productively towards your goals; and find peace and closure. Treatment modalities I use are EMDR, IFS, Gottman Couples Therapy, and Equine Assisted Therapy.
I have worked with hundreds of clients and have seen each individual, couple or family grow and heal in the security of a therapeutic relationship. “Ellen is amazing to work with. She is truly caring and supportive. She helped me so much with what I am going through." Together, we can explore and address the hard things in your life.
