Hi, my name is Ellie and I am here for you. Perhaps you struggle with anxiety, depression, chronic illness, guilt, shame, loneliness, or any other feeling that is not serving you well. This last year and a half in particular has caused significant added stress for so many of us. Coping strategies we once had may no longer be effective and this may lead to hopelessness and increased stress. Together I believe that we can figure out what you need in order to live a fulfilling and authentic life.
