Bio:
My name is Ellie. I am passionate about helping people get unstuck so that they can begin moving forward. I specialize in working with teens, young adults, adults and parents seeking to find balance in your busy, ever changing life. My specialties are in perinatal mental health, trauma, and life transitions. Specific to perinatal mental health and new parents: We all come into parenting in our own unique ways. For some it comes easily, but for many others there can be unexpected twists and turns along the way. Things may not be as you expected them to be and you may feel betrayed by your expectations and the expectations of those around you. In addition to joy and renewal becoming a parent can bring feelings of grief, sadness, fear, and unraveling. If your journey was not a straight and narrow path you may feel alone in your pain. As a woman and mother I help my clients to pick up the pieces and discover the powerful parent that you are inside. It can be difficult to let go of what you expected parenthood to be. By offering encouragement, guidance and understanding, I will help you learn to be the parent you know you can be. I will provide encouragement for you as you process the journey to motherhood, an ear to listen when you feel overwhelmed, and be your guide as you purposefully grow into parenthood.
