It is such a joy, gift, and honor to get to work as a child and adolescent counselor.
Hi there! My name is Amberly Ellis and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist. I approach counseling from an integrative, attachment-based, and interpersonal neurobiology lens, recognizing the link between behavior, the nervous system, and interpersonal connection. I believe the behaviors children and teens display are merely their way of communicating a need - a need to connect, a need to be known, a need to be heard, and a need for felt safety. It is my goal to not just help my clients “fix the problem,” but to help build understanding, connection, and a victorious mind.

Therapy is a judgement free zone where you can be free to express and explore yourself. Knowledge allows us to grow from within. You are the expert of YOU! I want to help you feel more content with who you are and be prepared to tackle all of the obstacles life has in store for you. I believe in the power of listening and understanding things from different points of view. I also believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is vital to the success of healing and the overall treatment plan. I believe in open and continuous communication. I am a cheerleader, a mentor, a coach and an educator.

As high achieving women and girls you have worked hard to achieve your education and career goals, and now struggle with feeling stressed, the imposter syndrome, or being one of the only ones in your work or education place. Others believe you have it all; on the outside you look independent, accomplished and “together”, but on the inside you feel anxious, depressed, and overwhelmed. You struggle to maintain your professional position while managing the rest of your life. Your personal life and self-care suffers. You feel exhausted by it all and have no idea how to get out of the cycle, but realize it is time for change.

I have a heart for people who are overwhelmed with life's experiences and struggling to cope and move forward to a healthier place. I feel people need to know there is someone in their corner, willing to listen, and help them find a place of feeling stronger, more in control and capable of managing life's difficulties. In my experience I have found that, in most situations, by the time someone reaches out to a counselor, they have already tried to self-heal and are in a place where they can only see one thing: the problem. I find great value in helping people learn ways to cope, regain their perspective, and feel worthy again.

Sarah believes that each client is the author of his or her own life experiences, and has the capability of maneuvering and pushing forward through circumstances in life. She recognizes it can be difficult and scary learning and implementing the tools needed to accomplish fears and worries. "It's like exercising a new muscle. It may hurt and get sore by working-out, but the muscle grows stronger the more effort you put into working on it." She has extensively researched the concept of empathy to help clients work through their trauma to develop secure attachment styles as well as understanding perspectives and co-dependency actions.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
