Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ellis "My approach to therapy is one that is collaborative and that seeks to be deeply understanding of not only the presenting problems, but the context in which those problems developed. This approach focuses on understanding how life events, along with early family environment, can contribute to areas of impairment or poorer functioning. What this means, is that everyone is innately capable of living a fulfilling and satisfactory life; however, some individuals may or may not have had access to developing particular skill sets to achieve this.

These skill sets may include difficulties in learning to regulate your emotions, developing skills to interact with others to get one's needs met, accepting and understanding past experiences to "make sense" of your world, etc.

I believe that you are the expert in you, and through a warm, positive relationship, we can either further hone in on these skills and/or develop them, to create a richer, more satisfying life."
