About

I believe that one of the main payoffs of effective therapy is that a person feels understood, and truly connected with and supported, sometimes for the first time in his or her life. While there is a commonality among all human beings, I treat each patient with sensitivity toward that person’s own individual personality and feelings. You’re the expert on you - I help you to understand more clearly who you are, what are the causes of feelings that may be interfering with your sense of well-being, and help you cope with life in a more skillful manner, and feel better.
I work with a lot of couples who are either wanting to rekindle the romance and connection they feel they've lost, or who just want to learn how to relate to each other in a more healthy, satisfying and less upsetting way. For individuals and for couples, my approach is one of intuition, gentleness, curiosity, and a willingness to aid you in your journey.
Most distressed couples respond well to the type of therapy I provide, but for those who have already separated or are going through a divorce, I facilitate groups to make that process easier. Whether you are an individual or a couple needing help - please give me a call. I'm happy to speak on the phone with you.

Ellen Butterfield's Groups

Divorce Group

A small gathering of people going through the difficult process of separation or divorce. Join with others in a safe, supportive group, to get comfort, share ideas, regain your balance and feel better. Those who are initially shy in a group setting often find themselves feeling more confident, and bonding with the other group members as time goes on.
