So many therapists to choose from! It's overwhelming, right? What should you look for in picking a therapist? Someone who is enough like you that you can connect, and yet different enough that you can grow. It's hard to tell that from profiles, but you'll make the right decision. It takes guts to be in psychotherapy, because psychotherapy is about really looking at yourself, and seeing what you do well and what needs to be changed. It's about gradually coming to trust the relationship we build together, and using that relationship for safety, support, and feedback.
I've been a psychologist for a long time, and I've seen the tremendous changes that people can make. By visiting this site, you've taken the first step. If you decide to call me, we'll talk about what you're looking for and how I might help.
What we talk about in psychotherapy is very serious, but respectful humor can be helpful too. Do you know the joke about how many therapists it takes to change a light bulb? Only one, but the light bulb has to really want to change!

Dr. Ellen Brackup's Groups

Don't Struggle Alone!

An older couple wakes up in the morning and one says to the other, "I'm dead." The second scoffs, "How can you be dead? You're talking to me." The first replies, "Nothing hurts; I must be dead!" Come to group. Share the inevitable pain of life, and the pleasure of learning about yourself and connecting with other real people (not just your therapist!). Bring your honesty and your compassion. This group, like the world, is as full of diversity as possible. If you and I agree that we're a good match, there's a place for you.

Don't Struggle Alone Details

I hope to offer the group listed above at some time in the future. It is intended to provide a coordinating experience for people who are continuing in individual therapy with me. The combination of group and individual therapy can be exponentially effective--and enjoyable too.
