Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Ellie is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who finds a passion for working with teenagers and their parents. Specifically to bridge the gap between the youth’s emotional whirlwind and the parents’ need for structure. She has experience working with teenagers who are at high risk for runaway, homelessness, and salvaging the relationship between youth and parents.
Ellie has received certification for Affirmative Therapy with LGBT Clients and has a dedication to working with this population and its allies. Additionally, she enjoys working with individuals experiencing the loss of a relationship whether it be a death loss or something more ambiguous such as physical separation (such as divorce) or emotional loss (family members of addicts, etc). Ellie also appreciates working with young adults to come into adulthood successfully, general life transitions, pre-marital counseling, and couple’s communication issues.
Along her own journey of growing up in Iowa, developing boundaries, and personal self-work, Ellie found herself practicing therapy in Wichita. Through her life experiences, Ellie has learned that each story deserves a safe place to be told so that healthy relationships can be formed or repaired, whether it is with others or with yourself. Ellie hopes to come alongside her clients in what may be a big, tangled mess in life to help them find a path to who and where they want to be. Ellie offers therapy for ages pre-teen through elderly adults.
Ellie’s general demeanor is light-hearted and humorous and she will spend as much time as needed to build a comfortable relationship with the client. At the same time, Ellie is also assertive and direct when it is needed in order to advocate for the needs of her clients, making sure everyone is heard and accounted for.
