About me

Welcome! I'm Ellen. ​ I am passionate about supporting women in navigating the joys and challenges of pregnancy, motherhood, and life. Utilizing integrative, evidence-based therapeutic approaches, I work with women towards achieving whole wellness. At Whole Counseling & Wellness you’re treated as a whole person—not a set of symptoms. I specialize in women's and maternal mental health. I am particularly passionate about supporting women during the journey of pregnancy and transitioning into motherhood. Furthermore, I serve women facing the challenges of infertility, birth trauma, miscarriage, grief, and loss. I hold a Ph.D. in Counseling from Florida Atlantic University and have nearly a decade of experience in utilizing evidence-based integrative counseling approaches drawing heavily from cognitive-behavioral and attachment therapy.

Ellen helped me through the most challenging time in my life. She created a safe and non-judgmental place for me to process my experiences as a new mom. I don’t know what I would have done without her.
