SUSAN ELLIS, LPC-IT
The decision to become a counselor came when Susan saw the need in her community for greater mental health services. Knowing how counseling has benefited her personally, Susan wanted to find a way to help others who are experiencing difficult times in their lives. She has ten years of experience as an elementary school teacher and nine years of experience as a criminal law paralegal. Susan has also managed a successful small business in Texas and was a caregiver to a family member through end of life care with Hospice. Her wide variety of career experiences have equipped her with life experiences and understanding for those experiencing difficulties in their lives.
Susan favors cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, mindfulness, and strengths-based counseling. As a life-long Lutheran she offers counseling from a Christian perspective to clients who seek faith-based guidance. She feels that counseling is not just a quick fix to feel better but instead a safe space for clients to explore themselves and gain insight on their life. The most rewarding change comes when you are willing to explore patterns that began long ago to get to the bottom of an issue.
Susan has experience helping adults and children with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, hospice care, grief, and adjusting to new situations. Susan also has experience helping those who are experiencing the uncertainty of legal issues both in family court and criminal matters. She has a passion helping those with ADHD, anxiety, trauma history and complex grief.
