Accepting Clients

Hi, I’m Ellie (she/her) and I’m so glad you’re here! I'm a queer, neurodivergent, bi-cultural counselor and I can't wait to meet you.

Licensed Professional Counselor in Cincinnati, OH
Supervised by Abigail Newport, LPCC-S

About My Clients

As a counselor, I help people overcome stuck points in life - feeling stuck in a past memory or experience, feeling stuck in a depressive rut or anxiety spiral, feeling stuck in fear or overwhelm, or just feeling stuck, period. Maybe you know exactly what you want from counseling, or maybe you just want something to change. Wherever you are in your healing journey, we’ll work through things together.

My Background and Approach

I work from a trauma-informed, collaborative perspective and integrate mindfulness, cognitive behavior theory, interpersonal connection work, and values exploration for a holistic healing process. I am also trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and can help you work through trauma and emotional pain in a safe, supportive environment. Outside the counseling room, I’m also a cat person, new hobby collector, fiction reader, and Cincinnati ice cream enthusiast.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I know from my clinical work (as well as my own mental health journey) that wellness isn’t a linear path with a clear start and finish. Instead, it’s a series of small shifts that gradually build into a rich, fulfilling life. I strive to create an affirming and inclusive environment for clients of all experiences, backgrounds, and diagnoses - everyone deserves to feel safe and supported in their healing journey. If you’re ready to start making a change together, schedule a consultation with me today!
