Life is difficult; there is no rule book. I am here to support you to help you learn new coping skills and strategies. I will partner with you so that you can move toward a life of enthusiasm, wholeness, and fulfillment. Have you ever felt like the “other?” I specialize in working with adults and adolescents who have felt like the “other.” Perhaps you may have experienced anxiety or depression, low self-esteem, are an artist or artistic type, are part of the LGBTQ community, are a person of color, or have felt rejected by your family or religious community.

I help people pleasers, perfectionists, and overachievers learn how to stop overfunctioning and set healthier boundaries. I also specialize in working with BIPOC and queer folks to heal from trauma in a world that continues to be traumatizing. Life can feel scary and uncertain. Fortunately, we do not have to go through it alone.

There is no universal reason to enter therapy. Everyone arrives in their own time, moves at their own pace, and seeks different outcomes. I approach therapy with the lens that every person deserves a space to heal with self-determination and empathy. Whether you are navigating emotions of overwhelm, grief, conflict, worry, or harm, I aim to address each feeling with care and thoughtfulness. I want to know what brings you here now and how you envision therapy as a tool for your personal growth.

Therapy should be a safe place where you can be yourself and get the support you need. Maybe you want to feel better about yourself, improve your relationships, or manage a difficult life change. Maybe you’ve experienced something upsetting and want help understanding it and moving forward. Maybe you’re just tired of anxiety running the show and know there must be a better way. I work with you to understand what is keeping you stuck and take steps to create the life you want. In the process, you will develop a strong ally who respects your courage and helps you identify and use your strengths.

It's a terrible feeling to be awake at 3 am because your mind is flooded with worries. Your worry may have started as small, but then it lead to another worry... Suddenly, your worries feel overwhelming. You feel shaky and unsettled. It's hard to concentrate on anything but your worry and that restless feeling in your body. You tell yourself, "Just stop worrying about it." You want to let go, but you just can't figure out how. It's hard to not beat yourself up.

Hello! I am Dr. Ellen Adelman, a licensed clinical psychologist. Effective treatment means looking at issues of the whole person: Mind, Body and Spirit. I often see people with their families or partners to help understand and resolve relationship issues and to improve communication skills. In individual sessions, a process of gentle exploration helps us address anxiety, depression, anger, and issues of self-esteem. We will determine the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of the problems you face. Together we can identify the areas where you need help and develop strategies to deal with them in a safe and healing environment.

Of the over 100,000 mental health professionals in the nation, only 4 % are black, and just a fraction of those are black males. There is a large segment of the population that is not being serviced or adequately serviced by the mental health industry. This conundrum has led to the creation of Triumph Counseling Group. Triumph was created to provide Black and African American people with culturally relevant counseling from competent, licensed, black professionals.

In my practice it has been key to identify what values and beliefs that guide an individual in their everyday decisions and actions. Then identify their goals for sufficiency for their ideal therapeutic path and journey. Collectively, the relationship is formed to clearly address from a coaching perspective utilizing interventions that are wholistic yet specific to the individual receiving therapeutic services. My clinical and therapeutic style has been effective in impacting children, adolescents, young adults, individual, woman concerns, and couples in their marital journey.

In life, it's easy to stay on autopilot. While there are times when being on autopilot works for us, there are other times when it doesn't. Through years of studying and practicing psychotherapy, I have become highly skilled at helping my patients to stop living on autopilot, and, instead, to start making CHOICES. Psychotherapy is a process of getting incrementally more honest with yourself. As therapy unfolds and you begin to know yourself more deeply, you can start to examine whether you are living the life you want, and if not, how you want it to change.

Many years ago I changed my life by pursuing a more fulfilling career. The concept that most inspired me was “Neuroplasticity”- The proven concept that we can change the way our mind works and in so doing experience greater well-being. Negative beliefs about ourselves are generally linked to negative things that we experienced in the past, or positive things that we needed to experience but unfortunately never did. By utilizing interventions that target "what happened" or "what needed to happen but didn't" we can increase of self-worth. Since thinking certain thoughts is habitual, we can learn to dismiss "unuseful thoughts".

Are your partner, parents or children driving you crazy? Our counselors can show you how to enjoy the best of your family while learning to let go of the parts that interfere with your happiness. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, or make the same self-defeating relationship mistakes repeatedly, we'd like to work with you to break these cycles and enjoy life. Are you a first responder or veteran? Talk therapy won't help. We provide evidence-based EMDR. You deserve a counselor with the training and experience to help resolve the problems that bring you to therapy, heal old wounds and deepen the bonds you already share.

Sometimes we look around and life is not the way we want it to be: full of disappointment, stress, sadness or loss. Sometimes we need help finding our way. In my practice, I seek to create a compassionate, supportive space for collaborative exploration, growth and positive change. I create a place where you can be seen and acknowledged, and you can give words to feelings and experiences, to discover greater understanding and self- awareness. When we understand our patterns of behaviors and feelings, we can free ourselves of the unwanted burdens that weigh us down, and live more fully and happily in the present.
