She completed an APA-accredited internship in rural Wyoming at Cornerstone Behavioral Health/MRSI. She has worked in a university counseling center, an Alzheimer’s disease research center, private practice, community mental health centers, and has taught graduate courses in psychology. Her approach to therapy is client-centered and focuses on the inherent value of humans and their desire for authentic, mutual relationships with others.
Dr. Ellis’ approach to treatment is based in interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theories as well as psychodynamic theory and practice. This means, she tends to help people “dig deep” in order to compassionately understand the evolution of their current concerns over time, reduce shame, and increase their desire for and ability to be in mutual relationships and live out of their authentic selves. Dr. Ellis enjoys working with adolescents (13 and up) and adults in individual, group, and family therapy. Her experience includes working with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, faith deconstruction, trauma, family of origin concerns, personality disorders, phase of life concerns, and grief and loss. She
especially likes working with the LGBTQIA+ community and can provide Letters of Readiness for Gender Affirmation Surgery (along with a diagnostic evaluation) according to the WPATH guidelines. Additionally, Dr. Ellis offers psychological evaluations as a component of custody evaluations, psychosexual evaluations, and personality assessments.
