COURAGEOUS COMPASSION THERAPY
"I believe that what we regret most are our failures of courage, whether it’s the courage to be kinder, to show up, to say how we feel, to set boundaries, to be good to ourselves."
HI, I'M ELLIE
I believe that sharing our experiences with one another allows us to make meaning, overcome shame, and return to our innate sense of connection and belonging. It takes courage to reveal ourselves and I feel honored to hold space for all aspects of my clients. As a therapist I respect your strength and vulnerability, offering a safe, nonjudgmental environment to express your truth, explore, and heal.
I work primarily from the Internal Family Systems model, which engages both the client's and therapist's innate capacities for courage and compassion as tools for transformation. I'm trained in IFS, EMDR, boundary work, somatic, and mindfulness approaches, which I integrate to best serve my clients. I have experience working with people from all walks of life and really enjoy working with folks around issues of trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, personal growth, spirituality, life transitions, relational conflict, communication, sexual issues, identity, and social equity & oppression.
I love helping my clients develop the tools they need to meet life’s challenges. Contact me today to learn more and book a session.
